4 Days On 4 Days Off

This past week I started classes! There was a holiday on Friday, though, and another one today, so I actually only had 4 days of classes and then a 4 day weekend. So what have I done with my time?

My friends and I didn’t have a lot of time to put costumes together, but we managed to…

I love the people in my program, I love my roommates, I love the random people I have met and the random adventures I have had, I love the food, and I love Argentina! Our program directors keep warning us about the honeymoon phase of culture shock, and at this…

4 More Days!

In 4 days I will be in Argentina!! This is both extremely exciting and nerve-wracking at the same time. One of the reasons I’m a bit anxious is because of the airports. I used to absolutely hate airports, it stressed me out, but I got used to several once I started college because I would fly back and forth from school to my home. Unfortunately, I’m not going to be flying from those specific…

One more week until I’ll be in Argentina! I can’t believe it!!

Well, today’s travel tip is, if you are going to study abroad, and especially if you plan to travel on your own before, after, or during your program, get an International Student Identification Card (ISIC).
