    I had hoped to have a wonderful time but this trip surpassed my expectations.  The scenery and richness of the wildlife at Naibosho Conservancy was outstanding and the work of the Conservancy and the Mara Wildlife Conservation Project, which I was privileged to be part of for a short while, must have much to do with this.   My favourite activities were wildlife counting and taking photographs used to identify individual …

    Mind racing about the future while still unsettled in the present. That is what my state of mind was on my last day in Maryland. What on earth possessed me to walk in my study abroad office nine months ago? Why did I pick a spanish speaking country, why travel on the unbeaten path? All these questions presented themselves to me then I realized “The steps of a good man …

    So...I am rounding out my first week in Sweden and loving it so far, (despite the onset of a rather persistent head cold.)  I have learned two Swedish words so far “hej” (hi) and “tack” (thanks/thank you). I have also learned that there is no direct correlation for the English word “please”.  I am working on building my vocabulary, however most Swedes speak English and almost all of the other …

    After traveling 30+ hours from Chicago to Kathmandu, I was so exhausted by the time my plane touched down in Nepal. Jet-lagged and sleep-deprived, I told the three men who bombarded me with questions that I had forgotten the name of my hotel, and didn't have any money to pay their taxi driver. "It's okay," the one who seemed to be in charge told me, "we'll drive you to the …

    Privyet! In less than 36 hours, I set foot on a plane to begin one of the biggest adventures of my life. My name is Harrison and I'm a senior math major at the University of Nebraska in Omaha. I'll be spending this fall semester studying in Moscow, Russia at a program called Math in Moscow (MiM). It is an incredible honor to represent my school and FEA at this program. Here's …

    As I prepare to be dropped off at O'Hare International Airport, I'm starting to feel something new - nervousness. Up until this point I have been extraordinarily excited for my trip to Kathmandu, Nepal, anxious, but in a fascinating way. Today, for the first time, it really hit me: this is really happening. For the first time since I decided to plunge into the unknown and travel on the opposite …

    My first week in Quito has been amazing and impossible to describe in one blog, but I will do my best. I’m living with a host family that has a lot of experience with international students from my university, and they welcomed me from the moment I arrived. A big part of Latin American culture is family, and although this is not knew to me, I am starting to get …

    This past weekend my friends, Sofi and Haines, and I escaped from the city for some nature in Cajón del Maipo, an area southeast and just a couple hours outside of the capital, Santiago. This was my first long-ish distance trip, which made it even more exciting! With our bulky backpacks containing all of our camping supplies, we caught the 9AM bus to Santiago to then took an additional three …

    Do you want to feature unique experiences, people, and places that you have seen in your travels? People with a disability may not be able to react as quickly as able-bodied people in case of a fire break-out. While it is good that disabled people want to live life on their own terms and be capable of handling all situations, they need to be made aware of precautionary measures.
