    Uncomfortable restless night, 5:00am bus to Pisa, sleep, 7:00am plane to Trapini—I buckle my guitar in next to me—sleep, two hour bus to Palermo, sleep, try to stay awake but can’t, wake up to protest chants outside Palermo station, follow a crowd down the street, slip through the riot police roadblock, check into my dinky cheap hotel, sleep, sleep, sleep…   I played catch-up and …

    Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate! World Internships was kind enough to send me to a world renowned chocolate festival in the beautiful city of Perugia. There, I met with several other students who were also on internships, and we wandered about the festival gorging ourselves on free samples. I ate a salted dark chocolate that soon after became my favorite chocolate of all time, and I freakin' worked at a candy shop! …

            Apparently, Rick Steves covers everything one needs to know about Cinque Terre. I have never read any books by Rick Steves, but I am confident that many of his most loyal followers hail from my neck of the woods. Out of all the people I met during my short trip, I’d say about 75% were from the Pacific Northwest. Considering the outdoorsy nature of Nor’westerners, it …

    So far I have met many interesting people from different parts of the world, some of them are students and some are professionals. I met two political science students here, one is American and one is French. Fortunately, they are working on the same project I do, one of them is working on masters with the same specialization as I do. We have discussed a lot important topics and currently hot …

    Before I leave to Paris, I have mixed feelings of excitement and nervousness. I have worked hard on this trip to happen and i have higher expectations for such great experience. I always wanted to live and work in Paris because the first time I visited it, I was pretty young that I couldn't understand or enjoy it. Right now, I have a very tight schedule to get everything ready and …

    Paris is the city where you should have no free time ;) Every night in Paris could be an adventure! If you hang out in the city or party somewhere you meet new people from all over the world. We went to a river cruise one night and it was awesome, then we went to some Erasmus parties which is the European union student service. Then to …

         Today I had my first Italian language class. Because I’m not actually a student, there is only one other kid in my class. We had a pretty good time, and I think we’ll learn quickly. The only problem is that we’re starting from the very beginning, and I’ve been teaching myself for two months now. I already know how to conjugate “to be” and “to have” and all …

      Baggage carousels are fascinating. Something about the way bags spill out of that mysterious little central conveyor belt, down onto the snakelike plates coiling round and round—I can’t explain it, but for whatever reason, I find baggage carousels more exciting than anything else in the airport. Maybe it’s because I always wanted to jump onboard and ride them around as a little kid. Maybe I’ve been suppressing that desire for …

    Sam Prince       Soon I will begin the opportunity of a life time. I will pack my life up into a backpack and load it onto a plane. When the cockpit door opens I will be in New Delhi, or Qatar. When next I lay my head on a homely pillow it will be Kathmandu in the center of Nepal. For the next five months I will live in …

    Here are some impressions of my further travels around the North Island. I explored the North Island in two steps the first time with a one week trip hitchhiking from Wellington to Auckland, then up to Cape Reinga by car and hitchhiking all the way to Mount Manganui with a Stopover in Waihi. Then hitchhiking all the way back to Wellington. Hitchhiking and Couchsurfing were some of the best experiences I …
