I'm currently trying to decide if I'll study abroad in Buenos Aires this coming spring, but I'm having a lot of fears and doubts about accepting. Mostly I'm afraid of my language skills being inadequate, not being able to find my way, having trouble connecting to other students, getting homesick, missing a boyfriend... yikes! I've also never traveled internationally before, so I don't have any of the positive associations that might help mitigate my fears.

Well, I meant to write a pre-departure blog post before I left, but I just didn’t have time. Between computer troubles and having limited internet access, this is the first time I’ve been able to post since arriving.
Preparing for Edinburgh has meant so much to me. This was a lot of firsts —first plane trip, train trip, and first adventure out of the country. I suppose I like to do things by great leaps. I was very nervous the first few days before I left, but I saw my friends and…Continue

So I have been back for almost a week. I was hoping to finish my blog my last few days in BA. However, those days filled up quickly with new friends, good-byes, and last minute gifts.
In my time since my last blog, I have traveled to Peru. I have seen Machu Picchu and Lake Titicaca, but you are going to have to ask me about those adventures in person.
What was my time in Argentina like? How was it? Common questions that I have gotten since I returned to the…Continue

Whale! This weekend I took my last trip inside Argentina to Puerto Madryn. It was a pretty long trip, but so worth it. Puerto Madryn is this really cute town that was first settled by the Welsh. Now it is most popular for the whales and wildlife. The sad part of trip was the first day we arrived it was pretty windy and…Continue

So, it’s boiling down. Finals are right around the corner and I hate them just as much as I do in the states. However, I am very proud of finishing a paper especially when it is Spanish. However, with 35 days left in South America I have a pretty long too do list. This week I am headed back to Patagonia. The following week includes final exams and the following week final presentations and final papers. Then it is off to Peru for two weeks. Finally, I have a couple days to say good-bye to…Continue

An interesting combination to say the least, however I promise you they connect. This past weekend I went to Calafate, which is located in Glacier National Park. After about at 3 and half hour plane ride south, I arrived at the cute little town of Calafate. It was a pretty fast trip overall. Some highlights included a…Continue
