What do you miss the most about America?
Michele Correnti: The one thing I miss the most about America is driving. There is something about having the ability to get up and go to almost anywhere at any time. Not too mention I don’t have to walk half a mile with my groceries back in the states!
Allison Collins: The thing I miss the most about America has really differed as the months have gone by. It started with food (especially my weekly/biweekly/ sometimes triweekly trip to chipotle). However, as time has gone by and I have adjusted to the food and culture I find that the thing I miss the most are clean streets and clear air.
Michelle Goliger: The thing I miss most about America is how cheap everything is compared to London. It’s pretty safe to say that my bank account has been taking a pretty massive hit this semester, but it is well worth it!
Michael Zhang: The thing I miss back home the most is walking down to the Route 1 Chipotle with some friends after a long day of classes.
Elaine Oves: That’s a tough question because I miss several things about America. My family and friends come to mind first, of course I miss them most. But for a more amusing answer, I miss slushies and flavored “snow.” Maybe I just haven’t been looking in the right places or the weather isn’t warm enough yet, but I have only had one slushie (from a little stand) since arriving in Vienna. No convenient corner 7-11 here!
Lizzy Unger: I am absolutely loving my time in Australia. I have made great new friends and met many interesting people. Despite this, the thing I miss most are my friends from home. There is no substitute for the bond you form with people you have been friends with for years and years. Although I try to skype with my friends, it is often hard to find time, especially with the 16 hour time difference. I look forward to seeing and laughing with my old friends when I return to Maryland.
