Back in the US of A!

(Just for a little though)


I'm posting this right after having landed in Boston's Logan International. It's the first time ever for me in this historic city and I'm quite excited to be here. My colleague Bill Martin and I are excited to represent WSA Europe at the 2011 Forum for Education Abroad. It's a bit strange though coming back into the US into an unfamiliar city after being outside the country for over three months. The whole "re-entry" and "re-integration" real and I definitely feel a bit out of place. Even though I find myself in the US, I'm constantly catching myself eavesdropping on an English conversation or giving American electric outlets a double take.

My colleague and I booked the top-rated hostel in Boston which after I arrived is somewhere between a halfway house and a hostel. While it has respectable ratings online, the funky smell that accosts you as you enter would beg to differ. The included breakfast is solid though and the location is great--just 3 blocks from the conference location.

Today, I think I'll stroll over to Harvard's campus after I take care of all the prep work for the Forum

Happy Backpackers

The trip I took with WSA was amazing. We had an incredible tour guide and we got to see the most important attractions Krakow has to offer. We did vodka tasting, a golf cart ride through the jewish quarter, schindlers museum, Auscwhitz and Birkenau, and a tour of the whole city. We packed everything in in two days. I highly recommend this to people who are backpacking or studying abroad throughout europe. This is definetly targeted to a younger crowd, but was absolutely worth the money.
