    I’m trying to keep an open mind here, but I can’t help but be a little intimidated by my placement.   I’m going to Middle-of-Nowhere France, population of 400 people.  The family is composed of four people, but I’ll only be teaching the seventeen year-old daughter.  Seventeen years old.  Only a year younger than myself.  Oh god, how will this be possible?  I can barely give someone half my age instructions, …

     My flight arrived in Barcelona around 9:30am, the exact time my connection flight was scheduled to depart. After asking Air Canada and Iberia desks what to do, and them both informing me that I need to talk to the other for a new ticket, I ended up getting sent to the long Customer Service Luthbasca line-up. After asking a man to confirm I was in the right one, he replied, …

     Mom texted me Wednesday around 3pm with a split second decision to jump on a Wasaya flight to Thunder Bay because I didn't have a ride there to catch my flight the next day. It was an easy, quick decision to make, aside from it would cut my last family dinner short about an hour. I said my teary-eyed goodbyes to the Jeffery side of my family and Britty and …

    Well, I have been here for five days already, hard to believe! There is so much to see and do here and I am lucky to have this week to explore the city. That itself, is quite the experience! Having never been on a subway or public bus system in the U.S., I got quite a bit of anxiety thinking about how I was going to maneuver it here in …

    Eight months ago, I turned in my application. Four months ago, I got my host family. Tomorrow morning, I am getting on a plane and leaving the country. It still feels a little unreal, like I can't believe I will actually be in Spain this Friday. I am beyond excited and definitely a little nervous too. I have never been outside of the U.S., and while I have taken several …

  • Hello from Vologda, Russia!!

    I'm currently in Vologda, Russia. It is a small and quiet city. To me, I think this is one of the REAL Russia cities that I will experience because this is not a tourist destination. This is like the country side so there are less people. People here seem friendlier or possibly shy. I have seen more Vietnamese people here in Vologda than any other places in Russia so far. …

    Rule 1 - Get a backpack. You can get a really good "fake North Face" or a real one, up to you. Either way, in order to backpack South East Asia, you need a backpack, otherwise, you will be rolling your bags everywhere. And, believe me, its not really comfortable to roll your bag on the beach. Plus, you will look geeky and you will envy people who have awesome …

I’ll be leaving on June 11th for about a month to travel around the eastern U.S. First, I’ll spend a week in Nashville with a friend and attend the Bonnaroo Music Festival. From there I’m flying into …
