Traveling has always been a goal in my life, and traveling to Greece topped the places I wanted to see the most. When I got the opportunity to come to Greece on an internship, I was overjoyed, ecstatic, and a little scared. I had never travelled to Europe before, and never by myself. A new place, a new language, and many new experiences. However, being in Greece these past 3 months has taught me so much about Greece, life, and myself.

I also wanted to learn more about the archaeological world while here in Greece, and I can certainly say that through my work digitizing old archaeological papers, as well as attending many lectures on the subject, and meeting many people who work in the field, I feel much more aware of what being an archaeologist really means - and it’s not all beer and darts!
