अलविदा India

Making it back to the ship alive from this past week in India was only one of the great things about these past days. Once again, we traveled independently in India and I absolutely loved it. The days leading up to our porting in India we were told that this country would be much different…

Three Months Down, Two to Go

Well its officially Fall here in Sydney. It was such a difference when I landed back in Sydney from Hong Kong compared to last time. My previous experience felt like I hit a wall of humidity and this time I was greeted with what I’m used to as the beginning of September weather! Now I’m…

France: Adventure Time!

Hi Everyone! My classes are done and finals taken! Some people decide to leave immediately for home, others, like me, take a while before heading back. I have one month to explore before returning home! Study abroad is an adventure so don’t forget to treat it as such! Explore your host country! Find cool, unknown…

France: Finals!

So. This is it. The end of the semester. Finals. A part of studying abroad is adjusting to things that are different to your culture. I don’t know about you but when I think about different things I think food, greeting customs, etc. Big things like that. What I do not think about is testing…

Port 11 – Day 5 – Ghana

Hello from my comfy bed upon the MV World Odyssey! Today started our as another great day at City of Refuge, but we were all sad when it came time to leave this afternoon. Our morning was similar to the past few days in the sense that we got up on the early side, at…

Chapter 1- On Our Way! San Diego, Mexico, and now Honolulu

Hello from the depths of the sea somewhere between Ensenada, Mexico and Honolulu, Hawaii. I have only just begun this journey but there is already so much that has happened. As we walked up to the MV World Odyssey I could only think of how many memories we were about to make on this very…

Getting Some Vitamin Sea- Honolulu and then off to Japan!

Happy Sunday! Today was another amazing day! Rebecca and I only have one class on B days and it’s at 9:30 so we have the whole rest of the day open. I really like having our class at 9:30 because it’s late enough that we can sleep in, but also early enough to get us…

Paris, France: Trial and Mostly Error

Tomorrow will be the end of my first week of school, and I’m not even counting down the days until the weekend like I would be in The States. Don’t get me wrong, I’d rather be exploring all day and discovering new places (and food), but for school, this isn’t too bad. Classes count for…
