Diving In

This summer I have visited 3 countries, and several different cities within Italy. Prior to this summer, I had never been out of the continental United States, it has been a bit different than the last 21 summers to say the least. During my third weekend away from Rome, where we are studying for the 5 weeks, I was in Interlaken, Switzerland. This particular weekend is one I will never forget, for many reasons, but mainly because I...

Returning from Ghana

Now that I am back from Ghana, I feel fulfilled. I feel accomplished that I was able to travel the world all by myself and return safely. I feel as if my stay in Ghana was not long enough. I absolutely loved that country. The food, people, and just overall environment was so awesome. I don’t even think words can explain how I feel right now. I am glad I was able to immerse myself in the culture and learn things about a part of...

While Abroad Adventures in Ghana

While Abroad We have taken several excursions while in Ghana. Each time, I am taken aback by how lively our discoveries and experiences are while adventuring. I go into each weekend excursion without expectation, merely because I have no relative idea of how the adventure might expand my limited nineteen years of experiences. My favorite expedition was in fact this weekend. Remember your buzzing thoughts as a child, trying to decipher...

Akwaaba from Ghana!

My time here in Ghana has been such an amazing experience. The country is very peaceful and I would love to come back one day. As soon as I stepped off the plane in Ghana everything was different. The weather is very humid. My first impression of Ghana was not what I expected it to be. The country is absolutely beautiful and the people are very friendly. There were many thoughts running through my head. I thought about starting my...
