Spain School Visit 

The absolute highlight of my trip so far has been the visit to the private school. There is just something about being in a school, and talking, or attempting to talk, to students and watching teachers in action that I love.

We broke up into small groups so […]

I met up with a few friends from our group moments after entering.     It didn’t take […]

Have I forgotten anything? Did I pack enough clothes? Did I charge all my electronics? Wait did I bring the adaptor so I can charge all my electronics? Where’s my passport (in my hand)? There it is! Put in my bag. Where’s my passport? You get the gist.  Our overnight flight wasn’t too bad on Swiss Airline. I think I even […]
