The Grand Adventure of Offenburg, Germany

My third stop on my way to school was Offenburg, Germany. Funny story. Actually we were planning on going to Munich, but we didn’t buy our train tickets until the day of (and therefore didn’t know the times of the trains going to Munich) and ended up missing our train. We could then either stay another night in Paris, or just get on the next train that was going somewhere (anywhere) in Germany. Obviously from the title of this blog, we chose the latter.

Paris was my favorite city, but we did want to see Germany. Offenburg was a cute little town that was kind of on the border of Germany and France. The other exciting thing about all of this was that we had no idea where we were staying once we got to Germany. Our train got in at like 11 at night. We got out of the train station and walked across the street to the only thing that was open, which was the pub, and hoped they spoke English. They pointed us down the street to a hotel and luckily it was a pretty nice hotel, but not too overly priced. Basically we ended up staying in Germany for less than 24 hours, but it was definitely a grand adventure.

My European Summer

Let me tell you about my summer in Europe that was definitely something else! After spending ten months in the United States, I had this strange feeling that I would be a tourist in my own country. I was looking forward to spending some time back home in the Czech Republic. I missed my family, my girlfriend and the “right” meal portions that don’t make you fat after one week. I also missed the simplicity of expressing my thoughts in my mother tongue. All of this was my source of thrill. However, after my plane landed in Prague and my[…]

Traveling Dublin, Ireland

Hello! So my name is Briana and I am a junior here at MNU. I am studying abroad in Manchester, England which is why you won’t see me on campus for the fall semester. I came to Europe two weeks early to travel and went to 8 cities and 6 countries. I am breaking up the videos by city so you don’t have to watch a ridiculously long video (you’re welcome). Dublin Ireland was my first stop on my two week holiday (as they call it in the UK), before going to NTC’s campus. I can’t wait to share my[…]

Action Pact takes to the road

This last weekend the Action Pact travel team packed packed up our bags and jumped in our fifteen passenger van at 10:15 AM to begin what ended up as a seven hour road trip to Cimarron, KS. Between moments of doing homework, sleeping, and jamming out to the radio our team of six alternated between melting in suffocating heat when the windows were closed or being slapped by relentless wind when the windows were opened. Action Pact followed Voices of Praise, an eight person singing group, in Clifford, their big red van. This was the second event Action Pact has[…]

Spring Break Adventures

Hey friends! Friday night, I got back from a crazy spring break.  No I was not partying, drinking, or waking up with my friends then discovering a dead body that forces us to make a blood oath so no one ever reveals our secret.  Instead, I was hiking through the Smokey Mountains with Kairos. 19 of us went to rough it up in the wilderness for three days.  We left last Tuesday and drove to Nashville.  We explored a little of downtown Nashville for a few hours then stayed the night at a church in Nashville.  The next morning we[…]

Spring Break 2016: Colorado

Hey everyone! This week is spring break, which means that I’ve consumed more junk food than usual and I haven’t worn jeans at all (except to church). On Saturday, I road tripped to Colorado Springs with my friend Morgan. We were on the same hall freshman year and this year we are on newspaper staff together. It was fun to spend time with her and relax! Like I said, we began our adventure in Colorado Springs. We explored Garden of the Gods, went shopping in Manitou Springs, and hung out with some friends that live in Colorado. We stayed in Colorado Springs[…]

Spring Break

Hey friends! As you all know, this is the last day of classes before our Spring break starts.  Most of us are leaving campus.  Tuesday, I am leaving at 7 in the morning to drive to Tennessee with Kairos.  We are going to be backpacking through the Smokey Mountains.  I have gone on several trips with Kairos and this will be the second time for me in the Smoky Mountains.  Last time I went backpacking through them was two years ago. We will be back late Friday night.  I am going to do my best in taking pictures to have[…]

Theatrical Escapades at MidAmerica

This has been kind of an insane week for me. This is mostly because I am now a part of four shows at MNU and all four were a part of my week this week. Mousetrap I am super excited for Mousetrap! It is a show written by one of my favorite authors, Agatha Christie. It’s a murder mystery set in post WWII era London. I play Mollie who owns a guest house with her husband, Giles. The play begins with the opening of their guest house and as the play continues the audience sees how the young couple’s big[…]

My Hymn For The Weekend

Hey friends! I don’t know if you know, but Coldplay released their music video for their awesome song Hymn For The Weekend feat. Beyonce and it is amazing.  I titled this blog after their song and also because I am going to tell you about a great weekend I had two weeks ago. Two weekends ago, I drove me and a van load of my friends to the River Market to do a little shopping.  For those of you who are new to the KC area or just do not know much about it ( I am one of those[…]
