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 >

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 >

I've got the biscuit!

AUSTRIA | Monday, 23 Apr 2007 | Views [1203] | Comments [1]

As I sit here and write this now, I am not sure if it is 5:50 in the morning or at night. When I told people what I was doing for my month break, they informed me that my body was going to be confused beyond belief. I didn’t believe them nor did I pay ... Read more >

As of this moment I am in Lausanne, Switzerland. Tomorrow that will change, though, as I head back to Innsbruck, Austria to spend some more time in my favorite place thus far. Boy, where do I start right now... looks like I have 15 minutes left on this ... Read more >

AUSTRALIA | Friday, 6 Apr 2007 | Views [887]

I haven't been able to put together an "Aussie Entry" due to a bit of uncharacteristic proctastination and having to get things together for my Austria and Switzerland trip. I leave for that area of Europe this morning as my coach leaves Swansea at 6:... Read more >

About how long does it take one to get from Newcastle, Australia to Swansea, Wales? If your guess is in the 35 hour range than you're about right. This afternoon at noon I finally got back to my flat in the Student Village. I take in a deep breath as ... Read more >

Pieces of a puzzle

UNITED KINGDOM | Thursday, 8 Mar 2007 | Views [1047] | 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 >

The opportunity bug

UNITED KINGDOM | Saturday, 17 Feb 2007 | Views [674] | Comments [1]

It has been about one month since I said bye to my family at Cincinnati's airport. For some reason, though, it feels as though I have been in Wales for much longer. As each day passes it seems as though I'm getting more adjusted to this style of living.... Read more >

“Why are you going to Amsterdam?”

NETHERLANDS | Thursday, 8 Feb 2007 | Views [2167] | Comments [3]

I got posed this question many times before arriving in Amsterdam. I prefaced each response I gave with a smile and a laugh. You see, there are a few factoids about the city that I wasn’t aware of before signing up for the trip. Fact #1: Amsterdam is ... Read more >

Right now I am enjoying the solitude of being alone in my 7-person flat. My wireless still isn’t hooked up and most likely won’t be until sometime next week. Once again, I am writing this in Word and then transferring it to the site from a library’s ... Read more >
