Beautiful sights of Potsdam (1)

  The city of Potsdam is not only the largest city in the state of Brandenburg, Germany, it is also the capital of Brandenburg. Potsdam directly borders the German capital, Berlin. Potsdam was the residence of the Prussian Kings and German Emperors for several decades, until 1918. In Potsdam, you find the largest World Heritage Site…

Elizabeth: Road Rebs

I cannot believe that my time abroad is beginning to come to a close! The month of June has been filled with final presentations, parciales (tests) and anxiously waiting to see if it is necessary to take my finals or being able to miss them due to my passing grades. I haven’t had much chance…

6 Months Already?

Since my last post, I have had the chance to travel around New South Wales, Australia a bit more. A little over two week ago a group of my friends and I headed up the coast to a little beach town called Byron Bay. The town was very eclectic as it had a wide variety…

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…

May │ June

It is officially June and I’m sad to say the last month of my semester here at Macquarie University. The last two weeks in May were nothing short of amazing as I saw friends and family, celebrated my birthday and the Sydney Vivid Festival began! Two weeks ago my very good friend from home, Georgie,…

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…

Riley: San Pedro de Atacama

     This past week I was fortunate enough to have some family members come visit me here in Chile.  I was pretty down in the dumps once my best friend, who came for a visit, left.  My Aunt and Uncle who were coming for a visit gave me something more to look forward to!  While…

May Days

Since I last wrote there have been many celebrations here in Sydney. Firstly, we started off with celebrating Cinco De Mayo. Not many Aussie’s know what the holiday is, but we definitely didn’t let that stop us from celebrating! We found a trendy Mexican cantina to have dinner and then ended up at one of the more…

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…
