These are my adventures, however mundane or extraordinary, during my stay in Belgium.
The potential idea for this blog is to post a snapshot of a special occurrence from my day with a description about the picture on a daily basis. Or at least try to the best of my ability to accomplish this mission.
Today is my LAST day in Leuven. I started it with my Flemish Art oral exam, which I did pretty well on. Afterwards, Brigette and I walked around town and saw the Town Hall one last time.
Afterwards, we had to clean our room and essentially empty it completely. Afterwards, we had one last dinner, and I went to Dewerf for my last dessert in Leuven. I had a DELICIOUS hot chocolate, and after that a bunch of us went to the Klockhuis for one last Belgian beer.
On this note, the blog that has been documenting my adventures in Europe for the past ten months is officially finished. Thanks for reading and sharing this wonderful year with me!
Today, I did a LOT of my packing and taking things off the walls. I had to take down my huge map that pinned all the places I’ve been. There’s so much I would have liked to see while here, but I really cannot believe how much traveling I have done in this ONE year. It truly amazes me still.
Today for brunch, Megan, Brigette, and I all went to Nosh. It was all our last Nosh meal in Leuven. Afterwards, we went to the Botanical Gardens for the last time; unfortunately, it rained the whole time. However, afterwards we grabbed our last waffles and then it stopped raining all of a sudden. Typical Belgium.
In the evening, we all went out to the Oude Markt for the last time.
This morning I had my Philosophy of Being exam, which kind of kicked my butt. SO I decided to spend the rest of the day hanging out in the room. I started the cleaning process and took down some of my wall decorations. I can’t believe I’m leaving Leuven in less than a week. :(
Today I had my Medieval Mysticisms exam. Since I feel like I did well on it, I grabbed an 80 cent Belgian chocolate milk from the nearby Carrefour Express and enjoyed it here, one of my favorite spots in Leuven (when it’s sunny).
After this, it was back to the books unfortunately for my Philosophy of Being exam tomorrow.
Today I had to do some intense studying for my exams. I’ve been studying in the kitchen lately since it’s been so empty, but it’s also just really cool to be in there when it’s warm and raining since we’re on the second floor. The windows are huge, so I kinda feel like I’m on a balcony or something.
This is a photo of Brigette donning some of the stranger things I’ve accumulated during this year. We were going through our possessions and starting to pack up things for America. I packed a LOT, but I’m actually becoming rather worried that I won’t have enough space. I’m almost certain one of my bags will be overweight. Niet zo goed.
