Hey everyone! Hope your finals went well! So, in my last blog I said I was going to go to Niigata. Let me just say, it was definitely an experience to say the least. I will tell you guys the play by play in this blog. So, to start, Niigata is about 165 miles from Tokyo. I and my friend, who is...

Holy Week. (That is what the title of this blog means, in case you were wondering.) Holy Week is the culmination of the season of Lent for Christians, especially Catholics, and it is an important if not the most important week during the year. While Spain abolished Catholicism as the official...

Hey everyone! I Hope you are all doing well and are looking forward to the end of the semester at UNM! So, in the past few weeks from my last blog I have gone to a new sushi place as well as to two different arcades. Also, golden week has started here, and it is a ten-day holiday. The fact that...

Well, I’ve been meaning to get back to France for a while now. And now, I’ve done it. I still haven’t gone to the most mainstream of places: Paris, but it doesn’t bother me too much, as it seems like everyone ends up passing through there at some time or another. I was bummed that Notre Dame...

After spending all night eating delicious local food, playing MaJiang, and jumping in the river we had to wake up and be on the bus by 8:30 am. Now we were headed from the Miao village to Bamengshui for lunch and a museum. The lunch was extremely nice, we ate upstairs in a private room, all thirty...

March has been a pretty weird month this year. Past March’s have been full of birthday celebrations, tennis, and spring break. This March my birthday still came and I did lots of fun things with lots of fun people, but it felt a lot of people. I hit my low point.  Low point is just what I call it...

I don’t know firsthand how the weather is in Albuquerque, New Mexico, right now, but in Madrid it is hot. Well, I guess it’s not like hot hot, but it certainly is unseasonably warm. I could actually have written this blog a month ago and it would still have been correct. Since mid-February, the...

I don’t remember if I talked about how planning for, registering for, or actually going to classes is at la Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (uc3m), but if I did, I want to say some things again and give another overview of some things to expect coming to this particular university, and maybe...

The nice part about having Friday off is that you can travel on Thursday evening, do fun things Friday, and have a 3 day weekend. The bad thing about having Friday off is that if you don’t plan anything then you’re guaranteed to waste an entire day. Having a 3 day weekend every weekend is a...

My next round of flights are probably given away by the title of this blog post, so I figure I can just cut to the chase here. Once again, I used the advantage of Europe being so packed together and relatively close to spend a week of my winter break exploring some new cities: Prague and Dublin...
