Dana: First Impressions of South Korea

  My first few days in South Korea definitely exceeded my expectations. Not only have the locals been extremely kind to me, but I can honestly say that I’ve almost experienced more in these past few days than I have experienced in my entire life. First off, as soon as I’d gotten settled into my…

Riley: Patagonia, Time Travel, and Bad Luck

Patagonia: Recently I traveled to the Patagonia Region of Chile with Megan, the other student studying in Chile from Ole Miss.  We were almost as far south in the world as you can get (before Antarctica, of course).  We began our trip by flying to Punta Arenas and from there we took a bus to Puerto Natales.  When we…

Elizabeth: A Solo(ish) Adventure

Last week we had an entire week off of school and I had a decision to make. Stay in and around Córdoba and take advantage of this week catching up on rest and studying (something I really need to do)? Or, take a trip by myself to one of the destinations I wanted to visit?…

Argentina: Study Abroad, emphasis on “study”

Hola to all! Apologies for not writing for almost a month, but I have (at least what I think to be) a good excuse! It’s midterm time. Part of what I forget about study abroad is that while I have the opportunity to go on many adventures (which I will update everyone on in another…

Au Revoir Mauritius and Neptune Day

Life on and off the ship has been quite eventful since my last post. We had Neptune day last week and then two days later we had one day off the ship in Mauritius. As I realize that we have less than 40 days on this adventure it blows my mind that I have no…

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…

Port 9 – Day 1 – Mauritius

A very sun kissed hello from Mauritius. We were woken up this morning by the sound of the anchor dropping, just as we always do when we get into port. After we woke up and got ready we ran up to the sisters room and woke them up to go to breakfast. I love going…

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…
