Luxembourg

To be honest, before coming to Luxembourg I knew little to nothing about it besides the stories my dad had told me over the years. He studied abroad here while he was in college and I’ve heard about it for as long as I can remember. His experience abroad is one of the main reasons … More Luxembourg

London (again)

Hello friend. You guessed it: I’m back at my crazy wanderlusting ways. My little brother, Brady, is studying abroad this summer… in Rwanda. Cool, right? He told me that he wanted to study somewhere that he may never get a chance to see otherwise. I’m beyond jealous, as I’m sure you can imagine, but incredibly … More London (again)

Quito

Quito was the final stop on my adventure. It is the highest capital in the world at 9,350 feet and the second most populous city in the country. Considering I only had two nights and a day in Quito, I think I made the very most of it. Kelsey and I did a little exploring … More Quito

I can’t believe how quickly time is passing here. I already have less than a week left in South America. Well the day before yesterday, I traveled from Santa Marta to Medellín, making the jump from sea level to nearly 5,000 feet. I didn’t really notice the elevation until I started to walk uphill or … More Medellín

Santa Marta

In case this blog wasn’t evidence, I travel a lot (relatively speaking). Barring a bad cold, I have never, not once, gotten sick in all of my travels (excluding my headaches that regularly plague my life). I have considered myself incredibly lucky for that. Unfortunately, it looked like my luck had run out my first … More Santa Marta

Cartagena

Hola! Yeah, that’s about all the Spanish I’ve been able to master my first few days in South America. I’m currently on a bus from Cartagena to Santa Marta, which is taking much longer than anticipated. That’s the first thing I’ve learned about this continent: everything runs late. Kelsey has been backpacking around South America … More Cartagena
