Post-Quarantine: Better Days Are Yet to Come & Trips to Nature

My internship in the Czech Republic didn’t turn out to be quite close to what I’d expected when I was applying last year. I was looking forward to taking advantage of living in central Europe and traveling around. But who could predict such an outcome either way? A pandemic? Really? Are these the 90s or something?

Two months. Two months in complete lockdown, in a state of an emergency, with borders closed, masks, disinfectants, one-usage gloves, hospitalizations, even deaths, and many more repercussions. But every storm subsides. This quarantine did too. Patience was the key to it all. Patience, positivity, and a well-structured routine to get through your day. 

No Orientation Skills, No Problem. Even in a Foreign Country

If you need to know one thing about me, that is, I have zero orientation skills. None. And that’s a fact. Maybe I even like it that way since every day is kind of a mystery. You never know where I might end up at. It might be a complete disaster or an awesome story to tell. For example, I’m living for a while now as an expat in the Czech city of Brno and I still keep getting lost all the time.

How to Cope When Stuck Abroad

Are you stuck in a foreign country all by yourself? This epidemic destroyed your plans? Well then, that makes two of us. This year, I decided to do my internship abroad, to be more exact in Brno, here, in the Czech Republic. 

When I started this internship at Foreigners I had different expectations and plans. I thought I’d be able to travel a lot, visit new cities, or even different countries. I thought I’d be able to meet new people. But things don’t always go as planned and sometimes you might get yourself in an unpredictable situation.

Coronavirus: Expats with a Residence Permit Can Also Get Tested for COVID-19 Antibodies

As the existence of a COVID-19 vaccine remains uncertain, the Czech government is focusing on the idea of herd immunity. Therefore, the Ministry of Health of the Czech Republic launched voluntary testing in order to find out how many people living in the country have the COVID-19 antibodies.

A German Adventure: Geierlay Suspension Bridge

Do you know the motto “seize the day”? Well, since last year that’s a rule I promised myself to live by, even when the comfort of everyday life is overwhelming.

A Series of Unfortunate Events when Traveling: Part 3, Swimming with the Stars

The second week of the voluntary program in Croatia, after our days off and our trip to Split and Sibenik, Mohammed, our team-leader, wanted to have another football match so bad that we decided to do him the favor and join.
So after the usual all-together dinner at the football field, we gathered around and divided ourselves into two teams.
The game seemed promising, even though fewer people decided to play this time. We were still having fun, trying to hit the ball and not our opponents’ feet since most of us had no idea what we were doing.
