“How to Survive a Long Flight” by It’s the Little Things

To my fellow travelers out there, we know that in many cases the “traveling” itself is actually the worst part. Some locations more than others can have excruciatingly long travel times while you wait in cramped anticipation to land at your final destination. Sorry to break it to you, but Floo Powder still only exists in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.  When I first left for Zambia I had 30+ hours of travel time ahead…(read more)

 Euroadventures — TRAVEL WITH ME. byWonderloveee

So I was offered and I accepted a position with a student travel company called Euroadventures. It is a an extremely easy way to travel while you are studying abroad. They were my savior during my semester in Europe. I don’t think I would have been able to see all of the places that I did if it wasn’t for this awesome company and now I get the opportunity to give other students that experience! I am moving back to Italy on…(read more)

10 Reasons Why You Should Visit Santorini by Girl vs Globe

I’m a total rebel without a cause. You say left and I say right, you say flight and I say fight. So why oh why did I decide to go with the flow this summer and visit Santorini, one of Greece’s most tourist-infested islands. Santorini is often touted as a “must-visit destination” because, much like Venice or…(read more)

 Camping in Kakadu National Park by Molly is Pretending to be Global

We all got out of the hostel and onto our small bus by 7 am and pulled away, ready as we could be for what was to come in Kakadu.  Kakadu is a national park in the Northern Territory which is split into six different precincts because of its size. The park itself is not actually owned by the Northern Territory but instead is owned by National Parks Australia & the Aboriginal people. Our professor told us that Aboriginal people still live in Kakadu today and live in…(read more)

Some Tough Mudder Fudders by Travvelsized

I have to start this post off by saying that Facebook’s suggested posts are terrible influences that clearly want me to die. (Okay, maybe a tad dramatic, they only wanted me to electrocute myself, sorry.)  Okay, after that dramatic introduction, I’m going to back things up a little and explain my actual story. Basically last year, a friend of mine posted something…(read more)

Publication: Oblivion by Yilin Wang

I wrote my poem “Oblivion” two years ago for my application portfolio for the Creative Writing BFA program at the University of British Columbia (UBC).  It’s been undergoing minor edits since, and this June I submitted it to Abyss & Apex’s Poetry Editor, John C. Mannone. He accepted it a few days later, and now…(read more)

South Korea, Part 3 by Hepburn and Handbags

I hope everyone had a happy 4th of July full of fireworks and great food! Now that the long weekend is over it’s time to jump back into my trip to Korea!  Right after Gyeongju we jumped back in the car and headed for Busan, way down at the southern tip of the country and the second largest city after Seoul.   We met up again with Lydia’s cousins from Daejon for dinner at…(read more)

Sweet Tea and Sass Playlist Number 4 by Sweet Tea and Sass

To say that yesterday’s weather was 100% the polar opposite of what 4th of July weather should be like would be an understatement. Okay, Arthur, we see you. I ended up having to work last minute yesterday (yay, retail. #sarcasm), so I felt a little less bad for myself when I looked out the window around noon and saw a tropical storm brewing outside.   With the weather being a bit nicer today — although still a bit chilly and windy — I am parked outside on my chaise lounge with…(read more)

How to be Taken Seriously as an Intern by Viatic Couture

Act like an intern, work like a boss.  I work full time, from 8 a.m. until 4:30 every weekday, and get paid extremely well compared to others at my experience level. I have my own office, I lead at least one meeting every week and am in charge of planning and promoting a huge company-wide event set to take place in August. Although I don’t have as much…(read more)
