The weeks in Croatia proved to be a very rewarding experience - full of travel journalism lessons, new found friendships, and lifelong memories. This course had the perfect mentors and teachers to lead us around the history rich Country that remains a secret to most of America. Expecting to soak in the culture and take a laid back vacation, I was pleasantly surprised with the amount of work and the amount of useful Journalism tips I'll be able to bring home with me. I look forward to using this experience in my future as I search for a job in the journalism and media world.
Here is a link to my project.
The two short weeks in Croatia were some of the best weeks of my summer. I had high expectations for Croatia after hearing about how amazing it is
from other travel journalism sources, but the country and culture
surpassed any expectation I had coming in. Through this program I felt
fully immersed in the Croatian lifestyle-- we experienced things from
tourist hot spots, to local treasures, and historical places and events
that mean so much to the country. The teachers are so passionate about
journalism and international travel in and out of Croatia, and it really
shows through. I now see why Croatia's tourism is growing and I'm proud to
contribute to it through this travel journalism program.
Here is my project.
My name is Rachel and I am a senior studying communications, journalism
and German studies at the University of St. Thomas in Minnesota. I knew
close to nothing about Croatia before I arrived. What I didn¹t realize is
that this place is one of the most unique and special countries in the
world. Croatia has truly been an exceptional place to study travel
journalism because of its history, culture and wonderful people. The
people in Croatia make it what it is and it was one of the most welcoming
places I¹ve visited. My trip has been filled with unforgettable
experiences and I would do it a million times over again.
