Because my fellow americans here are so awesome and since we genuinely enjoy hanging out together I wanted to celebrate my birthday with them too! Also, south americans don't get the importance of a 21st birthday either. So the Friday I got back from Chile we had a night out in celebration of my 21st…Continue

So for my birthday I decided I wanted to travel. My friends had just gone to Valparaiso, Chile and had good reviews so I was like, "why not?!" So three of the my friends and I bought bus tickets, booked a hostel (called Muffin Hostel!) and we were set! It was my first time staying in a hostel, first time traveling on my own (w/o adult supervision) so needless to say I was pretty nervous and excited. We were set to leave Thursday night at 10pm so after my 3hr…Continue

I wouldn't say I'm completely settled into life in Mendoza, but some things are becoming familiar, I can recognize some streets and know which buses to take (most of the time) but I still get nervous when I have to wait more than 10min for the bus to come. My host mom continues to amaze me with wonderful hospitality and cooking skills :)…Continue

These past few days I've been exploring Mendoza with my friends. We went to Plaza Italia last night and danced a conga line around the fountain square. We've also been running around San Martin Park which is amazingly beautiful. There's a long lake with a Regatta Club alongside it and after siesta you can see people rowing on the lake. Oh, and the Andes Mountains frame the view. I was there reading today and couldn't…Continue

I've been out of school since December 19th. I've been at home for almost three months and I am so ready to go to Argentina! Since Purdue started it's spring semester I've been at home working and studying to take the GRE for graduate school before I leave the country, because who wants to do that after coming home from Study Abroad?!

Hey, everyone! Matt here from just outside Baltimore, MD. I'm a History and Spanish major at Amherst College in Western Massachusetts getting ready for an incredible semester abroad in Santiago, Chile! Less than a week left now!

I am going to keep a blog for my college's Office of Study Abroad while I'm away, so I'll make sure to share links to my blog posts for IFSA's community network as…Continue

Hey readers! So this is probably the first post I have ever done. I thought I did one before I left, but it would seem not. Anyway, I have been in Norwich, Norfolk in England for 2 months. So far it has been AMAZING! I'm studying at University of East Anglia (UEA). It is a great school. So far I'm loving my flatmates. I live in University Village, which is as big as a village, we are a community. It has a surprisingly good night life. There are numerous night clubs in town that are always…Continue
This morning at 11:35 I finished my last final exam for the school year. I am now a senior in college, and I will never take another June final again. Thank goodness! And though I am thrilled by both of those facts, my brain (after taking a good 2 hour break from any thoughts at all) has now completely occupied with England and new friends and world travel. It’s a busy place now.
I haven’t had many adventures, so it’s safe to say that in two weeks when I go to study abroad at the…Continue
Well, it's three weeks until I head to Sussex for session 1 this summer and I finally got the darned group flight forms in! Those were a pain in the butt to figure out, especially since my family only just figured out our vacation plans for after I'm done. And those plans are an epic jaunt around the UK, with maybe a trip to Paris! In the meantime, though, i am quite excited (and nervous) for Sussex. This will be the first time I am alone abroad, and I'll have to navigate and manage…Continue
