    Today marks my first day in the North Island of New Zealand and my 21st birthday! Because final exams run for a full month here and my first final is not until October 30th, I am spending some time exploring the beautiful North Island. I am traveling with four other girls whom I do not know very well other than that they are studying at Otago as well. It will …

  • One Month Down.. Not Enough to Go!

    I absolutely love keeping countdowns. I always have them going on my phone to give me things to look forward to.. It always helps to know summer's not too far away, or Christmas, or my birthday. The problem is the next huge thing I'm looking forward to is also something I'm coming to dread.. heading home. Not that I wouldn't be excited for that, but I am now one month …

    This past Sunday I had the opportunity to visit Verona! I made sure that I watched the movie "Letters to Juliet" before Sunday, just so I was able to get a sense of what Verona looked like. The movie did portray Verona as it is. I saw Romeo's house, Juliet's house, the statue of Dante, the Verona Arena, the statues and tombs of the Scala family, and numerous basilicas. It …

    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 week has been one for the books! Literally. I have been so overly busy with class and tests it's been unreal. The library and beautiful study centers are my new home. Lucky for me, both supply great views and endless coffee. I am getting my marks back slowly but surely and have been doing pretty well. I do wish I had more time for the "aboard" portion and put …

    And the adventures continue! I have been in Dunedin for months now and had still never been to the far end of the Pennesula because I don’t have a car. Well' because we rented the car for the weekend, we chose to get it early and explore our own town. We headed up to the Albatross center for a peak at HUGE birds and beautiful ocean views. We met some really …

    This past weekend, my friend Emily's friend from home (UC Davis) flew in for the week and therefore there have been endless amounts of adventures. The week began with a trip to beautiful Milford Sound. Like all good trips, this one started with some problems. We made our way up to Te Anua and stopped in to do a day hike. It was a good thing we did because it turns …

    Yet again I have been slacking badly on my blogging! So, let's start at the beginning of the week of September 1st. This was my very first rugby game. I feel madly in love the game. It is so action packed and not ALL about the advertisement like American football is. We went as a large group of students and of course had an aamzing time. I cannot wait for my …

     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 …

    Has it really been two weeks since I've arrived? I feel like time is playing a trick on me and soon I'll realize it's only been a few days, because that's all it feels like. It's strange now normal everything here is to me now. I handle public transportation like a pro and know which buses to take to places and which stops to get off at. I can use …
