  • All You Want is One More Saturday

    Travel Journal from Australia Newcastle, Australia | Tue Sep 10, 2013

    I have never seen a city so vibrant, radiating positive vibes, and supporting street art as much as Melbourne, Victoria! I flew down to Victoria, Australia two weeks ago to catch up with some friends and travel down the Great Ocean Road. I arrived in Melbourne, and surprisingly, did not get lost. It was an actual miracle. I stayed at the Pensione Hotel on Spencer Street for two nights. …

  • Almost goodbye

    Travel Journal from Ireland Limerick, Ireland | Sun Aug 25, 2013

                Of course, the excitement couldn’t just stop once I came back from my solo European adventure.

My original goals for my trip was for me to grow as an individual, form relationships with others overseas, and gain work experience through my internship. …

  • The Best Crack in Ireland

    Travel Journal from Ireland Dublin, Ireland | Wed Aug 07, 2013

    It’s terribly easy to find.  It can be procured at any local pub or restaurant, from a stranger on the bus, or even at work.  Yes, the crack in Ireland is comparable to none anywhere else in the world.  Because it’s so plentiful, it’s free! Most Irish natives will have a crack or two….or seven, everyday! Craic (pronounced like “crack”) is an Irish word referring to good times, lively conversations, or …

  • the end

    Travel Journal from Costa Rica San Jose, Costa Rica | Fri Aug 02, 2013

    I guess this is the end. The end of a journey, an adventure, a brief moment in the span of a lifetime, but a moment that changed who I am, how I think and perceive the world. What I learned from this experience cannot be put into words; it can only be felt. I have felt myself grow. I have grown emotionally, intellectually, spiritually and physically, as I might have …
