Sorry for the lack of news this past month. As one could probably gather, this is because I have been extremely busy with immersive experiences as well as a major lack of internet or computers. So as succinct but also as detailed as possible I shall divulge the adventures we had in Cambodia. On New […]
On Friday December 15th we all left Kun Sathan early in the morning and headed off to Chiang Mai for Independent Student Travel. Jen, Meg, and I stayed in this cute hostel near the old town called “Thai Thai Hostel”, which had free wifi, a shared computer to use, hot showers, and Netflix! We spent our […]
Taken by the PLs (so thanks Peter, Patrick, and Julia for sharing) Royal grounds area and temples (Bangkok).
Wow how the time has flown! Our experiences here in a completely different core country have been eye opening and vastly different from our experiences in Guatemala. As we are reaching the middle point of the program things have been getting a bit harder for us all on TBB and we’ve each gone through a […]

It was extremely interesting learning from our host family about the specifics of each structure within the site. It was cool to stand there and imagine what the place might have looked like in its prime. […]
On Friday October 20th Matty, Tess, Claire, Sebastian, Caroline, Julia (one of our PLs), and I left Tecpan at 4am to take the long drive and then boat ride Northwest to Livingston AKA the Carribean part of Guatemala. This was planned as our trip for IST or Independent Student Travel. Claire did an amazing job of […]
The inevitability of getting severely ill while traveling finally hit me four days ago. I had a fever and extreme stomach pain suddenly at lunch after work on Thursday (October 12th).
