Some Change is Good

I’ve been in Bilbao, Spain, for about a month now. That makes a month of new people, new experiences, new thoughts, and new struggles. I don’t know that there is anything more strange than arriving to a country where your own language is not spoken, and realizing that you will be living in that language barrier for 3+ months.

Greeeeeeeeece! What an experience. The beauty of the Greek Isles is stunning…the mountains, the landscape, the beaches, everything is simply breath-taking. Not to mention the lovely people.

Am I There Yet? Excursion to Leicester, UK

This may have been the longest week of my life! So much to share, so little time (off to yet another University activity). Lets start from the beginning. My travels began on Sunday September 22, 2014 at a bright and early 5am drive to the local airport in Memphis, TN. You could imagine the nerves and excitement as my mom and I headed to the kiosk to collect my boarding passes to the first legs of my travels. After paying an extra $100...
