Austria, Prague, and Germany

By June 23, 2008Uncategorized

the SSU team has travelled through Zell Am See and Vienna in Austria and through Prague in the Czech Republic and are now situated in Munich, Germany´s Bavarian capital.

In Austria, students experienced beautiful scenery, Vienna coffeehouses, and took in an oprea in the cradle of Western classical music. Some visited the burial site of great composers such as Schubert, Beethoven Brahms and a monument to Mozart. Students also had there first significant taste of football fever: Austria vs. Germany packed Vienna with supporters for both teams.

Explorations in Prague was a first taste for SSU of Eastern Europe and new territory for the Europe study term.  Our time revealed a beautiful town that has been somewhat overrun with the growing tourist industry there. Nevertheless, students had some more experience of life during the the communist regime and some saw a world class production of the ballet “Swan Lake.”

Prayer concerns are happily few beyond the general weariness of reaching the trips midpoint.
