    Travel Journal from Australia Bendigo, Australia | Sat Aug 01, 2009

    The weekend began very early for us. In order to make it to the Dublin airport in time to catch our flight with Ryanair, we had to load the bus in front of our village at 4am. Then, we waited the entire four hour trip, suspended somewhere between exhaustion and sheer anticipation. After, what seemed to me, forever and a decade, the bus pulled into the Dublin airport, and we …


  • Calcio, my new favorite Past Time

    Travel Journal from Italy Perugia, Italy | Mon Feb 16, 2009

    Calcio in Italian is soccer, and the games here are SO MUCH FUN! A couple of friends and I went to the Perugia vs. Perscara soccer game, and it was an experience I will never forget. One of the bartenders at one of our favorite bars has a roommate who is originally from Pescara and said we were welcome to join them in attending the soccer game. Of course we …
