I had a really really relaxing semester even though I took 7 courses, most of the time I was traveling and there was little need to study or to do homework. I found the education I receive unsatisfying, feeling a bit waste of time in the middle of the semester. It seems always easier to move away to find a better place to receive education in comparison to staying and trying to have things work out.
I forgot who said that " It's not much about the city you are living in, it's about the people that you get to know in a city that determines whether you like this city or not." I felt that when I was traveling in Amsterdam and had friends accompanied the entire time. I found myself enjoy traveling more toward the end of my journey in Europe, perhaps I realized there is not much time to waste and I should cherish the moment? Maybe, but I think there is also some other independent factor that helps out, such as mindset changing. I enjoyed Paris very much despite the fact that I was sick the most of the time during my stay. The city is not very clean, smelly, very busy, and densely populated. I felt the city is much more vibrant than any of Germany, a bit more chaos as well.
