Sweet Dreams are Made of Cheese

    0
Tuesday afternoon found me back in Split just in time to host a PI fundraiser – The Grilled Cheese Invitational!  Because sweet dreams are made of cheese… (thanks to John for the awesome tag line!) The cook-off consisted of 6 contestants who each had 20 minutes to deliver their best creation made solely of 5 ingredients of their choosing.  No meat allowed – that would...

The Move

It was official.  I was no longer a resident of New York!  After locking up the trailer with the last of my belongings, we crossed the bridge and sped off to my Dad’s childhood home in Hershey, PA.  With my last Hershey visit being about 26 years ago, the chocolate cravings quickly began at the corner of Chocolate and Cocoa Ave.  But my favorite street...

The Longest Goodbyes

Going forward is something simple. What is left behind is what is hard. — Dave Mustaine How do you write about the goodbye’s when moving away, while remaining true to the emotion felt throughout?  How do you capture the excitement, sadness, fear, and happiness but most of all, love? While saying goodbye is never easy, it highlights the love and friendship surrounding you in life. ...

And We Have Lift Off!

“Who doesn’t know what I’m talking about Who’s never left home, who’s never struck out To find a dream and a life of their own A place in the clouds, a foundation of stone Many precede and many will follow A young girl’s dreams no longer hollow It takes the shape of a place out west But what it holds for her, she hasn’t yet...

Welcome to Split!

Now for the piece you’ve all been waiting for…the start of the action from Split, Croatia!  I may be two weeks into Prague already, but better late than never. After sleeping through (according to me) or surviving (according to Ahi) the flight from Munich to Split, we were welcomed at the airport by members of our Remote Year team.  While we were received with lots...

Jumping Right In

With arrival day complete, it was time to jump right in.  We kicked off Monday with a city welcome, introducing us to our Split City Team, workspace and the place we would call home for the next four weeks.  They provided important information on themes like the political climate, minority acceptance, and how to tip.  Our city team could not have been more amazing in...

29 Again? Not Me!

My mom may say she’s younger than me at this point, but turning 30 was worth it! Joining a new community of people right before my 30th birthday left me thinking I would ring in a new decade with a quiet evening celebrating by myself.  I could not have been more wrong!  These strangers who had entered my life less than one week prior made...

Goodbye: The Sequel

    0
Below is the sequel to the goodbye blog I wrote earlier this summer. This blog has been extremely difficult to write because it kept evolving as my experience progressed and my perspective changed; every time I thought the blog was complete, something big seemed to shift or change. At one point, I erased it all and started from scratch. In a way, this is the...

Adventure is worthwhile in itself. — Amelia Earhart Our second full weekend abroad brought two action packed days of outdoor adventure and cultural experiences. Each day offered one of two full day tracks and from what I’ve heard, they were all incredible! Early Saturday morning, half of the group (at least those that were awake!) went off to an eco-camp in Kastela, where they learned...
