Ireland: My First Week

Hello, friends! My journey in Ireland has just started, and I’m so excited about all the fun to come. I appreciate you taking the time to follow my adventures this semester. I hope to share some great stories and beautiful pictures with you over the next four months. Since arriving at Maynooth University last Tuesday,…

My Journey to Granada

Trying to figure out what country to study has been a challenge, from trading to decide between Mexico or Spain, of course, Spain won. After deciding on the program, it was time for applying for the visa. If you ever need a visa, apply to it as soon as possible, I was confused with the…

Chapter 2- Class is in Session somewhere in the Pacific

We have had our first day of classes and I’m honestly really enjoying all that’s going on. Just like any college, I am not going to class 24 hours of the day. However, unlike any other college experience, I am on a ship with limited space in the middle of the ocean. Meaning that I…

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…

And We’re Off! Honolulu here we come

Tuesday 1-5-2016 Well today has been a whirlwind of a day to say the least. It feels like I woke up in San Diego days ago. As Rebecca and I woke up this morning sitting in the Hilton in San Diego I can guarantee we had NO idea what was ahead. We haven’t really had…

Cannes: Settling In

So I have officially been in Cannes for a little over 72 hours now. I surprisingly haven’t felt any jet lag yet. Though the first day I was incredibly tired but I think that was more do to the fact that I hadn’t slept in close to 3 days thanks to nerves and a super…

Houston, We Have a Problem

Until 2pm yesterday I had fully intended to skip the ‘packing’ entry. Every travel blog I’ve ever read (and that’s a lot) has had a packing entry, and they all say the same thing. “Start packing as early as possible and keep lists to prevent forgetfulness, research what familiar products might not be available in…
