Update on the 90 Days With Drops Challenge, and Announcing Possible Spring/Summer Plans

Hi everyone! If any of you feel that I’ve been too quiet during the winter, I’m sorry. Hehe. I’ve been trying to focus on studying and following my language projects for the month.

Hey hey! I’m back to continue the second part of this blog post, and this is the last part of my recent adventure I had through parts of Europe. I left off leaving Prague to go back to PoznaƄ. Traveling by bus and finding some accommodation deals online during those end of November promotions that shall not be named, worked out for me to save some money and find great places. I also needed to return to Warsaw by December 10, as I booked my return ticket to the U.S. from Warsaw, so PoznaƄ was a good place to go back to.

From that point until I touched down at home, it was 2 weeks of traveling, so I’m dividing this post in 2 parts. So here’s Part 1.
