In this post, CAPA Alumna Alexandra Crowe recounts an unforgettable 10 day adventure from Sydney to Bali during her Spring 2018 Semester Abroad. 

There are so many different things that I could talk about for days in relation to my time abroad in Sydney, but one of the biggest highlights of my time on the other side of the world was the spring break trip that we took to Bali, Indonesia. A group of about 15 of us headed to Bali for a full 10 days of adventures and we all had the best time!

1. Bring a water bottle

Bring a water bottle and fill it up before you go out for the day! Also, keep your eyes peeled while going about your day for water fountains to fill your water bottle if water starts to get low. In much of Europe, especially Germany, restaurants and food outlets will not provide tap water. As an American, I’m used to having a bottomless cup of free water whenever I go out to eat, but this is not the case in Europe. In Germany, I had to buy a bottle of water at every restaurant, and they often charge exorbitant prices. For instance, at a restaurant in Berlin, a bottle of water was 5.90 euros.

In this week's post, Rachel shares how she went to Berlin, Amsterdam, Brussels, Paris, and Barcelona for spring break and how it compares to her experience in Florence.

For spring break my friends and I decided to book a trip through a student travel company located in Florence. This trip took us to 5 different cities in Europe: Berlin, Amsterdam, Brussels, Paris, and Barcelona. We had the option of traveling on our own, but because we wanted to see as many cities as possible in a short period of time this trip was the best option! Although we had help from a travel company, we were able to navigate through each city on our own and overcome a few challenges along the way. Follow along as I take on my European spring break… first stop is Berlin!

Berlin, Germany

As we arrived in Berlin I was amazed how modern the city was. We started our day by doing a free walking tour which took us all around the city. Although Berlin was very modern I enjoyed how much history there was within the city. Doing a walking tour gave my friends and I the chance to learn more about Berlin’s history and a new understanding and appreciation for this city.
