I have the biggest exam of my life tomorrow morning. However, I am no where near prepared. So I plan to study all night, as I am sure many other students in my dorm will be doing the same. I start preparing for the long night ahead. I walk downstairs at around 8pm to the single coffee pot in the dorm. I stand there in the long line of girls with the same plan as mine for nearly an hour. I fill a jug of coffee and return upstairs to focus and study away. The scent of coffee and creamer…


Hello, its me again… Haley. Today I am changing it up and writing about the positive and negatives of scuba diving. My interest in scuba diving was sparked by my mom and dad who fell in love with the unique activity. Last week, I was scuba certified with my little sister and I wanted to dig deeper, so I am writing this blog.

First of all, what is scuba diving? (Greta Travel source)

Humans have always been fascinated with the mystery of the ocean and with scuba diving we can experience and explore it. Scuba diving is where you are…


Borneo is one of the most diverse and unique places that I have traveled to so far. It is the third largest island in the world, located in Asia. It is home to all kinds of land and sights to see. From the animals, rich culture, mountains, caves, rainforests, jungles, and beaches, it is impossible to run out of places to go.

Borneo is home to the worlds oldest rainforest. It is estimated to be around 130 million years old. 65% of the massive island is made up of the rainforest. Half of the worlds lumber comes from Borneo. Inside…


My trip to the Solomon Islands was magical. I’m sure most people have not heard of it, despite its beauty. It is recorded as one of the least traveled to tourist destinations in the world, untouched by mass tourism. However there is so much to do here, its flourishing with adventure and new experiences. An important part of the Solomon Island’s culture and history is that brutal battles and wars were fought on this land during World War II. The Japanese and the Allies were fighting over this gorgeous strategic outpost. Today, there are souvenirs of the battles scattered everywhere…


It has always been a dream of mine to adventure to Paris. From all of the books, movies, and magazines that revolve around the beautiful city, my standards were set high. Reluctantly I can tell you it exceeded my expectations. I was worried about trying to navigate my way around the city. If you do not have a phone or a GPS, Paris might seem like a maze at first. It has 20 districts and all of the street names are similar and impossible to pronounce. However, transportation and travel was fairly easy. No matter where you get lost, if…


My trip to New York was an interesting experience. Certainly one that I will never forget. It is not exactly as glamorous as the movies and magazines make it seem, but I enjoyed my time here for the most part. The variety of foods and restaurants was amazing. You can find almost any type of food around the world here. From Korean, Chinese , Himalayan, Italian, Mexican food , and New York cheese cake, they have it all! Trying pizza in New York was definitely something on my bucket list. I tried types of pizza that I didn't even know…


My trip to Australia was unbelievable. I learned tons about the beautiful island continent and I am so excited to share my experience with the world. Australia is the perfect vacation spot for someone who loves the outdoors and adventure. The sun and the bronzed look is a part of the local Australian culture. Australians love everything from swimming, running, surfing, fishing, hiking, and exploring. They spend a lot of their lives outside and enjoying the world around them. A con to this lifestyle is that nearly 2/3 Australians are diagnosed with skin cancer by the age of 70. Personally…
