Little Italy + NYC = Buenos Aires? Who Knew?!

I’m human, therefore I make assumptions. I assumed I knew what I was getting myself into when I decided to spend 6 months in Argentina. I assumed I knew enough Spanish to ask basic questions and make polite chit-chat. I assumed I’d be eating some version of rice and beans and tortillas quite a lot. […]

Studying Abroad is Like Geocaching

Expect the unexpected. Start journeys. Take risks. Not too long ago, I had my first experience with the modern-day version of treasure hunting known as “Geocaching”.

I began my internship there three days […]

Ich Vermisse Dich Deutschland

My first week of being home was amazing. The relief of being surrounded by the familiar was a convenience I hadn’t realized I kind of missed. I could go back to the days of auto piloting without having to consider if I was on the right street or in which direction I should be going. […]
