Study Abroad in Austria »

This was taken from the top of the mountain at Zell am See-Kaprun ski resort. Other exchange students and I spent a weekend skiing here. We got lucky with the weather and the view was beautiful. One of the reasons I chose to go to Austria was to see the Alps. I was able to go on several excursions and hikes in the area. I loved being reminded of how grand the earth really is. Being abroad allowed me to explore even more of it.

Hallstatt, Austria »

Dating back to 5500 BC, Hallstatt located in Upper Austria is one of the oldest established cultures thanks to wealth found in the salt mines. It is the most beautiful place I can ever imagine being able to see and I hope to return to Austria and Hallstatt someday in the near future.
