  • Bay of Islands

    Travel Journal from New Zealand Auckland, New Zealand | Fri Apr 02, 2010

    Friday-Sunday On Friday morning I got up and packed for my little trip to the Bay of Islands.  I went to class and the whole time was very excited about leaving to get on the road.  My excitement about going was quickly killed when I got all my things and carried them over to the meeting place and the boys weren’t back with the van.  The two that went …

  • Lovin life

    Travel Journal from Australia Gold Coast, Australia | Mon Mar 29, 2010

    So far, I have had the most surreal experience being in Australia. From the first week in Cairns to the current time, I cannot believe how fast the time has flown. I have met some of the most unique people from both Australia and the States and done some pretty amazing things. I've held a koala bear and a snake (not together, of course), tried to surf, been to Sydney and …

    Travel Journal from New Zealand Auckland, New Zealand | Sun Mar 07, 2010

    I've picked 3 dance classes and 1 acting class.  They all are good and not too much work.  In the end i'll have 2 exams which is okay i guess.  I'm hoping that they're earlier in June and then i can move up my date to leave here.  I am still kinda homesick, but i just want to be back in the same time zone as my family and have …

  • Post Reading Week Stuffz

    Travel Journal from United Kingdom London, United Kingdom | Fri Mar 05, 2010

    Ok…it’s been a while…but I have a perfectly good excuse!  Actually, I have a number of them lol.  First, last week was reading week on campus.  This was a major shock to me—imagine having a week of no classes in the middle of February!  Admittedly, I spent very little time studying, or being particularly productive in general… (don’t worry, I finished a paper, so I did SOMETHING).  I …
