My amazing adventures in England

So much has happened since I last posted that I honestly don’t even know where to begin. I’ll start off with today: I went to London Fashion Week. I can’t even put into words how magical it was — the people there, the place it was held and the clothing were all magnificent! Being a […]

Hello! My name is Andria (Andi) and I am studying abroad in Manchester, England, this semester. Before leaving for England I had only been out of America once for a mission trip to Mexico, so this was a scary adjustment. I was very nervous to leave, but also very excited. I have grown up in […]

A little relaxation at Al-Pasha Turkish Bath

Filed in Blog, Jordan by on February 17, 2015 0 Comments

After a long week of classes and the start of my internship last week (which will be discussed in later posts), feeling fatigued I decided it was time to visit a Turkish bath. This was a first-time experience partially due to my hesitation of visiting such a bath. I heard several “horror stories” from friends […]

On the plane to Spain

Studying abroad is one of the most amazing and terrifying things you will do in college — really, even in your life. It is a once in a lifetime kind of experience that you will never regret. I studied abroad last summer in the Netherlands for a month, in part to see how the study […]

It is hard to believe that it has been over one month in this beautiful city I am privileged enough to call home! The time is going by so fast and I am scared that I am going to blink and the next thing I know, I will be sitting on my Delta flight back […]

Finding my way in Spain

My decision to study abroad in Spain must be my greatest solo adventure thus far; I did not know a single person on this trip before my parents dropped me off at Lambert International Airport that cold January morning. However, one of the greatest things that I am learning about heading off on my own […]

January in general

Filed in Blog, Germany by on February 5, 2015 0 Comments

January in general for me wasn’t incredibly eventful. That doesn’t mean I sat around my room all day every day doing nothing, but rather that I didn’t go anywhere super exciting or interesting enough to make a post only about it. I did go to a handful of parties though, which are always fun. The […]

Happy New Year!

Filed in Blog, Germany by on February 4, 2015 0 Comments

New years in Germany ended up being way more fun than I expected it to. Originally I didn’t have plans, but fairly close to Dec. 31 I was invited to a party by a friend of mine. The party was great; it was a fairly small get together with some drinking and games. I showed […]
