Split, Croatia

Traveling through Croatia with my family has definitely been a highlight of my trip so far. After returning from Costa Rica with my students I had 12 days to get rid of 2/3 of my stuff, mail the rest across the country to my parents place (if you ever need to ship things across the…

The Highs and Lows of Traveling

As a traveler, particularly a travel photographer, it’s very easy to only show the highlights and let people believe traveling is always living your best self: traveling to cool places, exploring awesome sites, and making great friends. Sometimes, however, traveling sucks. Traveling can be bad food, getting ripped off, and being so exhausted all you…

Visiting Korcula Island, Croatia

Recently I had the wonderful opportunity to travel to Croatia with my family and some really amazing family friends. I was already planning a trip to Europe and it turned out to be the perfect beginning. At first I was some what nervous at the size, 10!, of the group. How was a group that…

My, my Alice time does fly

At my age it can be hard to see the big picture. Hard to grasp how quickly time passes. At 20 I’m relatively young, yet for the first time, I also feel old. Tonight is my last night in Sevilla and its taken this moment for me to realize how much I’m going to miss…

Stop or I’ll tell my mom!

The past couple of weeks I have been working in a Spanish play school, attempting to teach Spanish kids English. A task much easier said than done. There are five age groups: 4-5, 6-7, 7-8, 8-9, and a teenage group, and I work with group one, 4-5 year olds. It has been interested to observe…

Ronda

On the final excursion for my school I went to a small city south east of Sevilla. Starting the day was a little rough: sleeping though my alarm, still feeling the night before, and having about four hours of sleep. Dressing, eating, and getting out the door took a total of 10 minutes, and needless…
