- Pilsen: factory of the most famous Czech beer Pilsner
- Cesky Krumlov: Small city in South Bohemia considered as UNESCO World Heritage site.
- Karlovy Vary: Small spa town situated in western Bohemia. It is historically famous for its hot springs. It is the most visited spa town in Czech Republic.
- Karlstejn Castle: Gothic Castle built by Charles IV. It is 30 min away from Prague.
One of the main reasons that made me choose Prague was its perfect location. Czech Republic is located in Central Europe and it has borders with Germany, Poland, Slovakia and Austria. I can even say that Prague can be considered as "the heart of Europe". It is really easy to travel anywhere else from Czech Republic. Another reason for choosing Czech Republic was that everything is really cheap! I could get a really good meal for less that $5. (Hint: Beer anywhere in Prague is $1)
This spring break, the Honors program visited Seattle, Washington to talk with companies and explore the region!
We presented our initiative to the judges and won FIRST PLACE!!!
The four of us are on our way to D.C.! We are looking forward to meeting our two other team members once we arrive to D.C. They're coming from Cleveland and Arizona. Once we arrive we will get settled into the hotel and begin practicing for our presentation on Monday!
Overall, the experience was magnificent. The exposure to business in Dubai both small and large was fascinating. I have toured other countries and even participated in a trade mission to Egypt for a printing convention. I had been in free zones then, but I had no comprehension of what exactly that meant for me as a buyer or for the companies located there. This is a testament to both the trip itself, and the program as a whole. The added benefit of this trip was to spend time with the cohort that had met in person only once before. I know there will be lifelong friendships from this program, and I look forward to working with my classmates in the future.
