  • Excursion 3: Mendoza

    Travel Journal from Argentina Mendoza, Argentina | Thu Oct 30, 2014

    Life has been a fast-pasted and a wonderful collection of all things new and all things beautiful. Time has been scarce…hens my less-than-punctual posts, but I promise to fill you in with all of the adventure that these past couple weeks have held. First and foremost: Mendoza. Mendoza, Argentina is located about 7 hours East of Viña/Valpo right on the other side of the Andes. That being said, it’s one of …

    Travel Journal from Nepal Nepal | Thu Oct 30, 2014

    After arriving back to Kathmandu on Monday from our trip to the Annapurna region, it seems as though I haven't had one minute of free time. This week was our week of finals, which included three separate Nepali exams - a written one, one reading the Devanagri script, and the ACTFL, a language speaking exam in which we had to speak to a trained tester for 30 minutes, after which …

    Travel Journal from Sweden Orebro, Sweden | Sat Oct 18, 2014

    In need of a break from studying for my upcoming first exam, I decided on Friday to venture into the nature preserve/forest that lies adjacent to campus. Granted, I have been dodging invites to group hikes for weeks.  If I’d been asked, I would have firmly stated that I don’t really enjoy the outdoors. However on this particular day, the view from my window was so inviting that I put …

    Travel Journal from Ecuador Banos, Ecuador | Sat Oct 18, 2014

    The past three weeks have been insane, between clinical, midterms, and so much traveling. Two weekends ago we went to Baños City, which is located about 4 hours from Quito. It’s probably called Baños for a reason, because 10/14 people in the group ended up sick by the end of the trip, but thankfully I was spared from the pain. Baños is located right below Volcan Tunguragua, one of the …
