  • The beaches of Ghana

    Travel Journal from Ghana Accra, Ghana | Tue Jul 22, 2014

    One of my favorite things to do in Ghana, is to check the numerous beaches and resorts that are available.

Coming from a complete land-locked state (Colorado) this is not something I am used too. Its also been something that I take complete advantage of. There are several …

  • Dongdaemun Design Plaza

    Travel Journal from South Korea Seoul, South Korea | Wed Jul 16, 2014

    My favorite site in Seoul so far is definitely the Dongdaemun Design Plaza (DDP). The building just opened in March so it is brand spanking new. My minor is going to be in Multi-Disciplinary Design. Seeing this building gets my designing nerd out. The building is enormous with smooth curves and many pathways to explore its beauty. The DDP houses exhibitions, Design Lab, Design Market, museum, shops, and galleries. It …
