    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.

    It’s 3pm CST in Terminal 5 of O’Hare International in Chicago. As I sit here waiting for my flight, I am thinking on all of the things and people that came together to make this trip a reality.  Already this has been quite a learning experience for me; navigating passport and visa applications, juggling communications between various government agencies, universities and programs. I had no idea what goes into traveling …

    I'm loving how friendly and helpful my host family is!  The food is excellent, and the space that we have is enormous.  My friend and I have the entire upstairs with our own kitchen, bathroom, living room, and even patio.  We even have a pool outside to cool off in the Spanish summer heat!
