As promised, here is the video I made about my time in Bosnia-Herzegovina. I had a good time making it. Every picture brought back a ton of great memories from my time in Mostar. Enjoy.

Life Back in the States

It has been about a month now since I got back to Minnesota from my summer in Bosnia-Herzegovina. I think about the people and places everyday. I miss it all. It was a truly amazing experience for me. I am so lucky to have had that opportunity.

As of now, I am just finishing up my fourth week of work as the Sustainability Fellow at St. John’s. It certainly is a different work environment than at the Eko Centar, but I like my job here too. I have a new apartment too. Once I get around to decorating it, I’ll post a couple of pictures of my Bosnia Corner.

One of my current projects is to create a short video about my summer experience in BiH. I will post that as soon as I finish the editing process. 

Until then… Ćao!

Adnan and Mary and I on my last night in BiH. We gave Adnan a poster with memories and quotes from the summer. I really enjoyed working with him this summer. He taught me a lot about culture, history, the inner-workings of NGOs, and their role in BiH. I’m already excited to visit again sometime soon.

I have officially checked out of my apartment in Mostar now. I am just finishing my three day trip to Dubrovnik with Gretchen. Now we are off to Paris for a week long stay before in head back to the States.

The End is Near

Tomorrow is my last day of work at the Eko Centar. It is so hard to believe that. I will be leaving Mostar after this weekend to begin my gradual movement back to the States. I’ll be spending a few days in Croatia, a week in Paris, and one day in Iceland before arriving in Minnesota. Getting ready to leave Mostar is a funny feeling. Thanks to all the people I have met, this city already feels like a home to me after just a couple months. There will be some tough goodbyes for sure.

It’s not all sad, though. I’m leaving one home to return to another. For those of you who don’t know, I will be back at St. John’s for a fifth year. Not as a student this time, but as the university’s sustainability fellow. I am getting more and more excited for that opportunity as the time gets closer. So I have that to look forward to, at least. For now though, I am just trying to enjoy my final days here as much as possible.
