For three days, I volunteered at the Guarani indigenous village of Peruti in the province of Misiones, Argentina. This was with the same organization I was volunteering with in Buenos Aires. There’s about 1,000 people living in this village and with at least 300 to 400 children.

Teaching English at Siyuan University in Xi’an, China Review and Guide

This is to make future teachers searching on Google or anywhere else aware of what to expect from Siyuan University(西安思源学院). Some of what I tell you might even hold true for other Universities but not all.

Beautiful Plitvice Lakes National Park

Never have I been so wet. And cold. I hate myself for only bringing a light cardigan sweater with me for my weeklong vacation in Croatia. The cardigan is so soaked through that it now feels like it’s a part of my skin. The only jeans I brought are covered in mud, as are my Converse. I had to buy a poncho at the gift shop. Needless to say, I’m not looking my best today. In my experience, being wet and cold means only one thing: I am miserable.
