Rounding New Corners
by Megan McGuigan ’24
Our Wartburg Choir tour across Europe was a very special trip. The trip had been postponed for years with the pandemic, and so there was so much anticipation built up! Most of us had never been outside of the country before. It was fun getting to experience that for the first time together, going on the trip we had talked about for years.
Since we were all so excited and curious, we explored a lot, splitting up into smaller groups to find the nooks, crannies, and stories that made a city unique. My favorite part was finding things we never thought we would by taking the less traveled path. The time to wander around the different cities was invaluable. I’ll never regret the times we said, “What if we go this way?” and never looked back. The best way to learn about other people and places is to go there and walk a mile (or several) in their shoes. I am so grateful for the opportunity to go on this trip. I will cherish the memories and tell the stories for the rest of my life.
