  • A walk to remember

    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 …

  • Vamos a BaƱos

    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 …

  • Midsemester fun-time and my giving back project

    Travel Journal from Russia Moscow (Moskva), Russia | Sat Oct 18, 2014

We've finally begun to discuss geometric topology, looking at real projective space, Euler …

  • Week 6: Gratitude and Homesickness

    Travel Journal from Czech Republic Prague, Czech Republic | Thu Oct 16, 2014

    There are fewer events to talk about this week since I included Krakow in my last post, so are a few things I’m so grateful for about being in Prague along with some reflection. A few things I’m grateful for: Learning about Dutch culture by talking to my friend Iris from Amsterdam whom I met in my surrealism in film class. We went to Cross Club (See week 3) and found a …

  • Simple Wonders

    Travel Journal from Costa Rica San Jose, Costa Rica | Mon Oct 13, 2014

    Well being here Ive been thinking what is important in life, Ive never really thought about my time but now I only have so little to myself. So I really think to myself what should I do with these 30 minutes or an hour. What do I find important in life and if time is the most important thing that I have shouldn't I use it to do things that …
