  • Just grab a hold of my hand, I'll lead you through this wonderland

    Travel Journal from Argentina Buenos Aires, Argentina | Tue Jun 23, 2015

    Last weekend I had an amazing time and it was completely unexpected which made it that much better. I spent Saturday with the family I work for at their weekend house (La Quinta). It's about an hour away from the city and it's a part of a gated community (right?!). It was SO beautiful and reminded me a lot of the cottages my parents used to take us to when we …

  • Back in the States

    Travel Journal from United States Massachusetts, United States | Thu Feb 06, 2014

    Now that I have been home for a month, I have been reflecting on my study abroad experience. Since it's winter here and summer in Australia, I am definitely missing the weather. There's already been a few snow storms here. When I got back, I felt like I always had something to say about Australia.

Although it's difficult to wake up and find public transportation so early, the class is always eye opening …

    Travel Journal from Australia Gold Coast, Australia | Mon Dec 30, 2013

    Looking back on my trip, I had the best time of my life.  After arriving in Australia, my pre departure jitters completely disappeared. I made friends, got used to my environment and the way Australia worked. I feel like part of the reason my jitters disapeared was because in the first few weeks, I was excited and overwhelemd with being in Australia. By the time it fully hit me that I …

  • Home Again

    Travel Journal from United States Pennsylvania, United States | Fri Dec 20, 2013

    Today marks one week since I've been home and yet it still feels weird to say that. I'm home. Over the past week I've had the time to adjust  to being back, but it'll probably take me a lot more time to adjust to the idea that I'm not going back to Rome.. not for a long while anyway. That makes sense I suppose. After all, it's a strange thing …
