    As my time is quickly winding down here in Rome, I've been thinking a lot about home and how I felt about coming here before I left. At the time I was a bundle of excitement and nerves and in a way I'm still like that. No matter how long I've been here I still feel so excited and lucky to have this opportunity.. and everything's been pretty much exactly …

    Time is passing by and my journey in Hawaii is soon coming to an end. Did I realize it would pass by so quickly- no. Yet, soon would be finals and my departure is sure. However, I have experienced a culture I must share. For anyone who touches the shores of Hawaii, the Hawaii State Art Museum is a must. The Hawaiian pieces were truly inspiring and one visit to …

    In my first entry, I mentioned that I had heard that things here in Australia are expensive. I came here knowing this, but still gasp at prices. Bottles of water are $4, candy bars are just under $3, and a meal at McDonald’s never costs less than $15. To Americans, it seems ridiculous. However, when the minimum wage in Australia is $16 an hour, everything seems more reasonably priced. I came …

    Looking back on my first entry, I realized I didn't have anything to worry about. Australia has been nothing but fun and adventures.  I should have brought more clothes but the fact that I didn't bring as many as I wanted to means I was able to go shopping!! The prices here are crazy high but that hasn't stopped me..which is probably a bad thing. I have made so many good friends …

    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. This morning we made the four hour journey from Taupo to Wellington in the nasty rain but found sunshine in the …

    So, I was right. I had the most amazing time at the Waitomo caves! We went through Kiwi Cave Rafting and not only saved a lot of money but we had the best guides. The journey begins as we abseil down into the cave. From there, we make our way against the current of the river to several small squeezes and passages. I faced my fear of the cave collapsing …

    Time has a way of managing to speed by without even realising it. I can't believe that I've been living in Rome for over a month now and yet it seems as if I can't remember any other way. When i first arrived I remember my roommates (then strangers) giving me advice on how to get to the grocery store from our apartment and warning me that i would have …

    I have been in Australia for a little over seven weeks, and although I had a rough start, I’m at the point where I don’t want to go back home. The 14 hour flight was pretty bad, because I got sick within the first hour. There was a TV screen in front of me, and I could watch the plane/where it was located in the world. I went to that …

    Bright and early I had awoken to the beautiful sunlight glaring off the beach. I love waking up in the most beautiful places here in New Zealand. We set out early and took the gravely 309 road from Whitianga to Coromendal which is also the shortest road from the west to east coast. We stopped at a short hike and enjoyed the beautiful forest of the North Island. After driving …

    I want to first begin with the fact that I am currently writing this entry on the beach, listening to the waves of the ocean and the rain from a storm. Well we finally got a chance to stretch our legs but better weather was not in our forecast! Our morning began bright and early with a stroll of Paihia since we didn’t see it the day before. It was …
