Here Are Some Simple Ways to Afford Studying Abroad

Today I wanted to share an article that I found that make me think back to my college days. I had always wanted to travel and looked into studying abroad. Sadly it didn’t happen for me, but that doesn’t mean it can’t happen for you. My main excuse was that it was so expensive, but things also changed in my life around that time. However, I still regret that I wasn’t able to have had that amazing opportunity. I would hate for others to miss, or pass, the possibility of a life altering experience due to money. Thus I decided to share this article so your dream of studying abroad can become a reality.  Credit for article is listed below.  Continue reading Here Are Some Simple Ways to Afford Studying Abroad

Happy National High Five Day – April 20th

National High Five Day Hello everyone. Today I want to step away from my normal travel blog post and share something related to my other passion, sports.  When people think about 4/20 and what it represents, they may not realize or think that it’s also National High Five day. Did you know that? I didn’t, but apparently it is. Since I didn’t know much about its origination, I decided to do a little research and share this info in a post. There are many origin stories of the high five, but the two most documented candidates are Dusty Baker and Glenn Burke of the Los Angeles Dodgers and Wiley Brown and Derek Smith of the Louisville Cardinals.  Continue reading Happy National High Five Day – April 20th

Never Give Up Hope! Perseverance Is Vital!

HopeToday I wanted to share how I was felling over the weekend as I look at going back to work on Monday. I am thankful and blessed for my job, and I enjoy what I do (thank you to my co-workers for the appreciation). However, I do have some bigger dreams and they aren’t in a cube surrounded by other people in cubes. I want to explore the world and see what else is out there to see. I created this blog mostly for fun, but it has made my sense of wanderlust much worse, lol. I can only keep plugging away at my dreams, and hope that one day they will come true.
