  • Vino at the ViƱa

    Travel Journal from Chile Chile | Tue Sep 02, 2014

    This past weekend a group of us girls (yes…all 12 of us) headed out to Casablanca, one of the richest and most fertile wine areas of the region conveniently located about an hour southwest from Viña/Valpo. It was beautiful…vineyard after vineyard with sweeping mountains in every direction. We elected the organic vineyard, Viña Emiliana (amazing decision). They were not only so unique in their sustainable and socially responsible practices, but also …

    Travel Journal from United States Maryland, United States | Sun Aug 31, 2014

    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.

    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 …

  • The Looming Departure

    Travel Journal from United States Nebraska, United States | Thu Aug 28, 2014

    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 …
