A Trip With Morgan

A canal in Amsterdam, May 2006

The summer after my senior year in high school I took a trip to Europe (spending down my savings to get better financial aid). My absolute favorite city was Amsterdam. The people were amazing, the food was amazing, basically, it was the best place I could have spent that summer. In the end, it inspired me to take Dutch as my foreign language in college. Not the easiest choice I could have made, but hey, if a place inspires you, go with it.

After traveling for almost 16 hours, getting off the plane in such an amazing place was quite a treat. With so many interesting cultural things to experience, it kept me awake - despite being more tired that I can ever remember. Amsterdam is an amazing city, filled with graceful architecture, amazing events, and things that you will never see anywhere else.
