    Last day in London!  It was rainy, which was kind of disappointing.  The London Eye isn’t quite so spectacular with the rain and gray skies.  Still, it was a site to see!  And now I can say that I’ve done it.  I didn’t realize that the London Eye was a big Ferris wheel.  I’m pretty sure most of the people back home don’t know what it is, if they have …

    I got to see quite a few interesting things in London today!  We started off the day at St. Paul’s cathedral.  We have seen quite a few cathedrals now, but I think this one out does them all.  The splendor itself is interesting enough, but I also enjoyed seeing the crypt down below.  I liked that they randomly stopped for prayer while we were there.  It reminds me that although …

    I think this is the end of my second day in Dublin! Sunday was hectic, but I made it to the airport on time and like the megabus, an overnight plane ride just seems like one long day! I met two kids (highschoolers) from Omaha at the airport and we had fun waiting for our plane! The man next to me on the plane kept on taking over my leg …

    New Zealand was amazing! I think I have found a new favorite place in the world. Although it was a short trip it didn’t cease to be spectacular. We left Sydney on Thursday after work. We all just took the train to the airport and then checked in for our evening flight. We flew on Air New Zealand, which was the nicest plane I’ve ever been to! Each seat had …

    I just finished my first week at my internship.  Thankfully, the first week was not very demanding. I worked from about 10-1 every day at the law offices of Clau Legal (Clau is a Catalan word.  It is the same as "llave" in Spanish or "key" in English).  It's a small office with one lawyer, Adriana, and her assistant, Fatima.  The lawyer is very much like a professor and so far …

    Another day in beautiful Barcelona has come to an end.  Well, not really.  It's only 8:00 p.m. here so that means most people haven't even had dinner yet.  Most people eat around 9:00 or 10:00, so that's the biggest cultural difference I've noticed so far.  It will take some getting used to, but I won't mind when I can have my dinner at 5:00 again  : ) There are two guidelines …

    MAY 27th-30TH. After staying an hr in the wrong baggage claim, I finally retrieved my luggage and took off in a cab with my prof, to out hotel. We stayed in Rome 3 days-depending when you got there. Touring Rome, we visisted the Colessium, Pantheon, Ancient Rome with Ruins--it was wonderful and an INCREDIBLE photography experience. But for only three days, I can only write so much. Our third day, we took a …

    Well today was the last day of classes here at Ormskirk. I will now be heading off to London! How exciting is that?! After three weeks in Ormskirk, I think I'm ready to leave. It's a nice little town, but I'm ready to go experience life in the big city! There's so much to see and do there.. I'm almost a little overwhelmed by it. Fortunately, one of my friends here has …

    I am almost ready for my trip to Paris. A few important things have been purchased or secured ( passport, ticket,  etc) but I still feel like I have a lot more to do. I feel like I am losing my mind trying to think up every possible item I might need. Not to mention trying to figure out how I'm going to fit all these things into a suitcase …

    Hola todos, I'm finally in Barcelona!  I arrived on Saturday after a grueling day of traveling.  Ok, it wasn't that bad, but sitting in a cramped seat for seven hours and not being able to sleep isn't what I'd call fun!  Let's back up a bit so I can tell you how I got here. The guidelines for my flight were that I couldn't have luggage that weighed more than 50 pounds. …
