DSCF8053As an international education administrator, I regularly give orientations to students going abroad. One thing I always say, regardless of the destination or whether they’re going for a week, a semester, or a year, is to journal. I filled two whole journals when I studied abroad, and I still try to take a few moments to jot down my thoughts at the end of the day whenever I travel. It’s the best way I know to actively process the experience – the differences that make you scratch your head, the challenges that make you want to scream, the moments of wonder that leave you standing in awe of this amazing world we live in, and of which we only see a very small part.

Because my penmanship is at an all-time low (I suspect I am not alone here, eh? darn computers) and because I now have a blog, I thought this would be the perfect place to record my thoughts, and share a few musings and photos with anyone who cares to read. I only hope that I can convey my experiences humbly, and with clarity, curiosity, and a sense of humor. Certainly not without bias – I’m sure the lens through which I live my experiences will always be blatantly obvious. But I’ve always appreciated the wisdom of Marcel Proust, when he said, “The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.” Here’s to new eyes, and to adventure!
