Didn't prepare a post beforehand—already en route. 

Mexico: sunny and 74°;

Brazil: with Amazonian jungles;

Panama: with man-made marvels;

Peru: with ancient ruins and breathtaking sights & heights;

Here I come. 

On this trip, in this moment, I will:

Be all here 

Revel in the f...

A year ago today I wrapped up a small, unforgettable European adventure.

Experiences too great for words, and places I never dreamed I'd see. I journeyed back to my Swiss roots, met 5th cousins in France—in a house built in 1751, basked in worlds of history & architectu...

December 15th came & went, and all those exams & reports & presentations flew down the hatch. Some got stuck, but somehow I managed to jam them down and they’re finally out of sight. 

Life back on the farm and in The Fort is as full and busy as ev...

December 15th is my most-dreaded day in Switzerland. It's the day for which I stayed up till 02:00 many'a night studying at my desk. It's the day to take the most-difficult of 3 Masters exams this week. It's the day I tread the weakest plank on this bridge suspended ov...

Well. Those bags got packed—somehow—amid one sleepless, scattered night. They were only 33lbs overweight.

Another exchange program is taking me to study at Universität, Bern. In a few hours. 

 

Before settling in Switzerland for the break-less, intense fall semester, I plan to spend a few days in Dublin, London, Edinburgh, Stockholm, Budapest, and Paris. Generous f...

Out of more than 14,000 photos and videos, only a few made the cut for this. 

 

Within its minutes lie a host of stories untold, friendships unseen, and sights unearthly. 

 

This project is an attempt to give all a glimpse of my adventure, 

to give some a token to reme...

Day 169. 

 

Flight departs BNE in an hour. 

 

Not enough words or time to describe all that this season has been. 

 

“Heaps" of people, places, adventures, highs, lows, and eye-opening experiences that will go down in history. 

 

Privileged to have had this opportunity. 

 

Grate...

Just a few pictures of the amazing Land of the Long White Cloud (New Zealand).
