MALAYSIA | Mon, 20 Nov 2017 | By rutttroy | Views [792]

So I am off to camp tomorrow (Port Dickson) for three days.  Now it does seem like a hotel with a pool and not quite a YMCA so all good...I just need to make sure there are no wasp nests nearby!  I am glad that there is raft building on the ... Read more >

Harry Pelling

INDIA | Fri, 8 Jan 2016 | By davidford | Views [516] | Comments [1]

Harry Pilling was one of my favourite childhood cricketers. He was a batsman for Lancashire and, from what I can remember, particularly good off the back foot. He was also, not unconnected I'm sure, very short of stature. I particularly liked it when ... Read more >

FRANCE | Sat, 10 Oct 2015 | By kakimono | Views [411]

If anyone has been quietly thinking to themselves “why is she always talking about classes? I didn’t know she actually intended to study abroad,” worry no longer. As of this week, description of what’s going on in my classes ... Read more >

NORWAY | Thu, 24 Sep 2015 | By brandonborn | Views [550]

Finally made it to Norway, after years of dreaming I’ve finally made it to the top spot on my bucket list, and so far it hasn’t disappointed. The trip here was incredible, five planes, 8 buses, 2 trains, 2 taxi’s and a ferry. For anyone ... Read more >

The sat nav is not your friend, and other directional mishaps

UNITED KINGDOM | Wed, 22 Jul 2015 | By the_life_of_lady_laura | Views [380]

When it comes to finding your way around, it can be a little tricky at times. When you are overseas the places, things and systems that you are used to are all slightly different, or non existent and at times it can leave you a little bewildered or confused.... Read more >

FRANCE | Sun, 24 Aug 2014 | By jazwalker | Views [444]

My second international trip came in my last year of high school. I'd been studying modern history for the past two years and had been looking forward to doing so since I was young. One day, a friend of mine who was in my history class asked why our ... Read more >

Rabat for the Last Time

MOROCCO | Sat, 26 Jul 2014 | By kakimono | Views [442]

 When we walked out of the train station and into Rabat, I commented that it felt much cooler. It always felt cooler in Rabat than it did wherever else we visited.  “That's because it's hooome,” Natasha said. I breathed in the ... Read more >

Another Time, Another Town, Another Everything

MOROCCO | Tue, 22 Jul 2014 | By kakimono | Views [508]

The Moroccan consensus on Rabat, at least among people of our age, tends to be that it is a boring city. From the ftour on the beach: Fati (who has lived her entire life in Rabat): “What do you think of Rabat?” Us: “It's nice.... Read more >

MOROCCO | Mon, 21 Jul 2014 | By kakimono | Views [2109]

 On the syllabus for poli sci, there was a 8-10 page paper that counted for 20% of our grade. The good news is that by the time the teacher got around to describing it, the paper had dropped down from 8-10 pages to only 5. The bad news is that by ... Read more >

 On Wednesday, we handed in our papers for the Dakar trip. They were due to our two non-Arabic teachers. Our lit professor was delighted when Megan turned hers in and shocked when the rest of us also handed in our papers. Last year, the students ... Read more >

Something Next to Normal Would be OK

MOROCCO | Thu, 3 Jul 2014 | By kakimono | Views [562]

 I was right. After a week of Senegalese accents, the politics class was much easier. I say that with the knowledge that I don't need to present this week- we get Friday off to “celebrate the 4 th of July.” So I don't need to worry ... Read more >

We'll Prove it with Reference to our Last Seminar

MOROCCO | Mon, 23 Jun 2014 | By kakimono | Views [407]

My host mother seems determined to make sure I learn “hamka,” the Darija word for “crazy.” She uses it nearly as much as she uses “Le bas?” and she asks me that every time I see her. It would be a fair trade, since ... Read more >
