And so it ends

Tuesday, 5 Jun 2007 | Views [909]

As I write this I am at a Subway in Bristol, England. I just got back earlier this morning from the first round of my travels in England and Scotland. I spent a few days in Kettering, England with my good buddy Jamie Hurd and then went off to Lodon for ... Read more >

It's the people

Thursday, 24 May 2007 | Views [995]

“Yes,” I tell my friends, “I will be back to Swansea. One day.” This journey, full of boundless blessing and memory, is now near its completion. I have likened this stage of my experience to the last .1 of a 3.1 mile cross country race… I’m about to finish ... Read more >

I love Wales, I love travel

Whew, it has been way too long since I last wrote an entry. In my entry before the rugby one I mentioned how I would continue to write about my Austria trip. Well… I’m not going to do that. Due to various distractions such as paper writing, hanging out ... Read more >

Rugby at its finest

Wednesday, 25 Apr 2007 | Views [2744] | Comments [1]

Tonight I saw my very first rugby game. It was an absolute blast watching Swansea University take on our rival Cardiff University at Cardiff's stadium. For all of you Americans reading this, I'll paint a wee bit of a picture for you. This match is like ... Read more >

At the airport!

I feel a bit like that little guy in the photo accompanying this entry. But unlike the koala who sleeps 20 hurs and plays 4, I am about to use all my energy in seeing Austria and Switzerland.  The fun begins shortly as I board my RYANAIR flight 306 plane ... Read more >

The journey continues...

Tuesday, 20 Mar 2007 | Views [1062] | Comments [1]

It’s hard to believe that by the end of the week I’ll be in Australia. The fact that I’m going to Australia, Austria, and Switzerland really hasn’t sunk in quite yet. In reality, I don’t think it will hit me that I’m doing all this until I get to London ... Read more >

Pieces of a puzzle

Thursday, 8 Mar 2007 | Views [1087] | Comments [4]

Being here in Wales is about as surreal an experience as I have ever had in my life. Granted, I am only 20 years old and God willing I have much more of life to experience. It seems to periodically hit me at random times that I am actually IN Wales. This ... Read more >

Behind the curtains

As I sit here at my laptop writing this entry, I look out my window and gaze upon a full moon. I have looked out my window every night since being here and have never seen a sight such as this. A beautiful end to a beautiful day. Today, March 1, 2007, ... Read more >

Embracing all I can

Monday, 26 Feb 2007 | Views [902] | Comments [1]

I look at my blog and realize it has been way too long since I’ve made an entry. Since I wrote last, there have been so many wonderful experiences that I’d love to recount with you. There was the soccer game last week that was an absolute blast, the house ... Read more >

A neat little place right in the middle of nowhere. I had to fight off the urge of climbing over the ropes and trying to knock one of 'em over.
