Agnes’s Travels To Date

Though this was my third time, this was Agnes’s first time going to Paris, France with me. Though she went all over the place, she got a good long look at the Louvre. She really does love her art and artifacts!

And off we go to the Emerald Isle. For Agnes, this was a return trip to the land of her birth (since Agnes Irvine Scott was actually an immigrant from Northern Ireland). After spending the New Year in Brussels, Flat Agnes and I caught a flight from Brussels to Dublin for a week and a half tour of Ireland with Alex! Fortunately for us, we were also able to meet up with some more great Scotties who were visiting Ireland on their Global Awareness: Literary Ireland trip. Here are some pictures of what Agnes got to experience!

After our quick trip to Bielefeld, Flat Agnes, Eva, her father, and I took to the autobahn and drove down to their family’s house is Aachen, Germany. Here in Aachen we got to see the end of their Christmas market, visit the UNESCO World Heritage Centre at the Aachen Cathedral, and try some of their traditional Aachener Printen (similar to American gingerbread). Another successful trip with some great memories!

Flat Agnes's Journey from Brussels to Bielefeld, with a few stops on the way

Flat Agnes’s Journey from Brussels to Bielefeld, with a few stops on the way

One of the things that I love about Agnes Scott College is their focus on introducing their students to different cultures and customs. One of the ways they do that is by encouraging students to study abroad (as I am now). However, one of the best ways they do that is by welcoming a large number of international students to attend school in the U.S. I had the great fortune of becoming great friends with one of those students, Eva Vogt, and Flat Agnes and I came to visit her in Bielefeld, Germany. We had an amazing time with her and her family and got to see Bielefeld’s famous castle, as well as go to more Christmas markets and try currywurst.

Agnes’s Trip from Brussels to Cologne to Langenfeld

And we’re off! Flat Agnes has officially crossed the border into her second country on this grand adventure that is Christmas Break! Second stop: Cologne, Germany! She got the chance to visit the shops, take a bus tour around the city, and enjoy some of their fine eating and drinking establishments. After that, we split up and Agnes came with me to Langenfeld, Germany to spend Christmas with the Grothe family! Here are some pictures of her travels…

23 Dec

In honor of its 125 Anniversary, Agnes Scott College has started a “Flat Agnes” campaign. What this campaign has done is sent little cut-outs of our school’s namesake, Agnes Irvine Scott, so that students and alums can take pictures with her around the world. That being said, I will not be taking Flat Agnes around with me in my study abroad travels.

Agnes’s first introduction was to–surprise–Brussels! However, we were lucky to be joined on this trip by the wonderful Agnes student Alex McLellen, who is currently studying abroad in Northern Ireland. Below are the pictures of our trip, as well as the map of Agnes’s first step abroad!
