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…

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…
