Zambia Has My Heart

I miss Africa. I miss the people. I miss the culture. I miss the genuine happiness that everyone carried. It has now been 3 months since my trip to Zambia and I miss it more and more with each day that goes by. Those people will never know the impact that they have truly had on my life forever. My friends and I talk all the time about how much we miss Zambia and its people. I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to visit this...

UA in Oxford: Upon Return

It has been one month since I arrived back home from Oxford! I catch myself missing my sweet little English spots nearly every day. Looking back on my adventures, I can now say with full assurance that my month abroad enriched my life in so many ways. When I arrived in America, I was so excited to see my family, friends, and eat Chick-Fil-A again! After our long return flight (full of lots of turbulence and not much sleep), I was...

Eating Abroad

Going abroad, you are introduced to all new foods, and for me, that was what I was most nervous about when going abroad.

How to pack for abroad

  If you are anything like me, you understand how difficult it is to try to pack for an entire month in Europe it is a rather difficult task to complete.

And if you’re me, everything has to fit and one suitcase is not feasible for ten days...

Incredible India

So. Many. People. There are the three words that sum up my biggest realization for my trip so far. With a population of around 1.6 billion people, India boasts an enormous amount of citizens. But even being told this, you don’t truly grasp the concept until you’re surrounded by so many humans. My biggest take away so far is how conceited and naïve I’ve been in my life up to this point. It’s easy to think your life is meant to be some...

Before

I’m currently a week away from the daunting flight that will take me to India. I keep glancing at my luggage, still debating on whether I’ve packed too much or too little. I guess in my next post I’ll be able to update you on that specific question… still not sure which one would be better. As I’m packed and ready to go, I’m thinking about how I got myself involved in a trip all the way to Asia. I would say I just kind of heard of the...
