Port 12 – Morocco – Casablanca to Marrakech

Hello from Morocco! Before I start on our first day in Morocco, I figured I would let y’all know the best news ever that we received during our seven-day trek from Ghana to Morocco; this news is that we found out that my dad, Champ, will be joining us in our after SAS travel! Rebecca…

Ghana Was Life Changing

What a week it was in Ghana. Coming onto Semester at Sea I would frequently get the question: “What port are you most looking forward to?” The first time I answered this question I automatically said “Ghana” without a doubt or second of thinking. Once I thought about it I was equally excited for each…

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…

China

China China China. Oh China. It’s been a long week here in China. Yes long but also really exciting. I know I said this about Japan, but I’ll say it again for China: it was not at all what I was expecting it to be. Maybe I need to just stop expecting or anticipating certain…

Sayōnara Japan

Where to begin, where to begin. How about Yokohama, where the Japan adventures began? We ported in Yokohama and have not stopped since. Our first day, Paige and I decided to try independent travel for the first time. We left the ship and headed for the local train station. After 20 long minutes, our first…

Port 2 – Day 3 – Japan – Tokyo

27,039 steps later we have officially had another full day of touring Tokyo. Thankfully, today was a breeze compared to yesterday. The hardest thing we went through today was finding a place to eat lunch. This morning we let ourselves sleep in and just relax a bit before we headed out; we didn’t leave 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…

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…

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…
