  • Edinburgh Adventures

    Travel Journal from United Kingdom London, United Kingdom | Sat Nov 30, 2013

    So, I have finally ended my crazy three weeks of traveling.  The adventure concluded with a short weekend trip to Edinburgh, Scotland.  It was a very eventful trip even before I arrived in Scotland, let me tell you.  Because cabs are so expensive in London, especially to and from airports, I try to take the train as often as I can. The trip might be a little longer and a …

  • Te Ika-a-Māui: Day 5

    Travel Journal from New Zealand Wellington, New Zealand | Thu Oct 17, 2013

    Bright and early seems to be the theme of this trip but it is only because we have so much to see and so little time to see it. I mean we traveled from top to bottom the North Island of New Zealand in seven days. That's pretty impressive.

  • My First Weeks in Italy

    Travel Journal from Italy Florence, Italy | Mon Sep 30, 2013

    I cannot believe that I have been living in Florence for 5 weeks now! It seems that the days as well as the weeks are moving by so fast. Where I was once getting lost I can now lead others to these places as if I have been living here for years. That's not to say I never get lost though, because I certainly do! But they say getting lost …

  • This is it

    Travel Journal from United States Texas, United States | Wed Sep 11, 2013

     It seems like only yesterday that the countdown I put on my phone read 100 days till London. Now I'm in my final few days before I head out on this crazy adventure.  This entire summer has been a constant roller coaster of emotions. When I was first accepted into the semester program at the University of Westminster in London, I was ecstatic!  However, I was surprised at all the …
