The Good People of this World-IVHQ Volunteer House

The German, the Englishman, the Canadian, the Australian, the French, and the countless Americans; no matter where on the globe we hailed from, we had countless similarities in ideals and lifestyles. The people I met on my trip coming from other parts of the world became consistently some of the best people I’ve met in…

Iguazú Falls: A Spiritual Adventure

Traveling away from the volunteer house on the weekends is the norm for most volunteers. A 22 hour bus ride from the volunteer house awaited one of the most surreal sights in the world. Iguazú Falls is located on the boarder of Argentina and Brazil, and is home to the grandest groupings of waterfalls on…

Choripan-Argentine Food

The buildup of excitement for choripan Fridays had me overwhelmingly excited for dinner time. Luckily I was not let down. The large sandwhich type food filled with sausage, eggplant, cabbage, and chimichurri sauce was incredibly satisfying. In comparison with other Argentine food, it had the boldest combination of flavors and the largest portion size. Can’t…

Bed bugs in the Hostel

Lol. Sooo it’s 1 am and we just ran from one hostel to another because of a bed bug infestation. When in South America amiright? A good learning experience that’s for sure. Happy to be in a safe and non bug-ridden bed. Love life. Just a quick and crazy update. Xx.–M.Lee

Argentina: Exploring Villa Allende and the Volunteers

This week was full of exploration. We explored the town square, we explored our placements, and we explored the minds of those whom we’d met traveling. Villa Allende is a quaint area outside of Córdoba, yet still seems to hum with excitement. There is a constant stream of children playing in the fields, dogs galavanting…

SANTIAGO, CHILE (the airport at least)

I am in transit to Argentina. I have been traveling since 6am on Saturday, and I am having too much fun already. What an eye-opening event to solo-travel for the first time. I’ll be back with numerous updates throughout my trip, I’ve already had an eventful time and I haven’t even made it to my…

Passports, Flights, Etc.-Argentina 2016

I knew I had to buckle down with planning sooner or later, and Spring Break was the perfect time to do so. I finally went down to the post office to renew my passport which expires in three days (yeah, really was on top of that one, I know). Everything went smoothly and the passport picture…

I’m Going to Argentina?!

My trip to Mexico over Winter break really got me thinking. I so enjoyed speaking the language with the locals, learning about their day-to-day activities and hearing their life stories. When it was time to come back to the States I was a little more than disappointed. Not that I don’t love the US, I…

First Travel Vlog!

This past summer, I went on a road trip to San Diego, California with my friends and filmed it! I finally have all the footage put together and posted on YouTube. Check it out! LINKKK:SAN DIEGO ROAD TRIP.

The World’s Good People: Dominga. Cozumel, Mexico

I took a trip to Cozumel, Mexico with my family earlier this month. I stayed at a beautiful resort, one that I will write on soon. I had the BEST trip of my life! I met so many amazing people. One of whom’s name is Dominga. She was the braid and massage specialist on the…

Running.. Do it for you.

A while back the thought entered my mind that I should run a half marathon. I’ve always enjoyed running, but mentally I was never really strong enough to do it. I could make it 2 miles before I would give up. I never told anyone about my goal because it seemed ridiculous and I don’t…
