I’ve been super out of contact with this lately. Focusing on school and trying to avoid the internet for as long as possible. However, I have numerous things to share. I still have a million photos from Myanmar and Thailand to post, but those will have to wait until I have my other computer fixed (ugh).
For now though, I have a few glorious photos from Iceland to post! The past 10 days I spent exploring Iceland with a few students and a professor from my university. It was absolutely splendid. The picture is from our hike up Skogaá.
Despite having laryngitis and a sickening cough for most of the trip, I hardly noticed because of the incredible things we were doing. We hiked craters in gale force winds, crossed crater lips on sheets of ice, explored snow covered lava fields, watched the Northern Lights and the moon rise in silence, skinny dipped in the Arctic Circle, ate a sheep’s head, meandered around Reykjavik, sang awful karaoke, drank expensive Icelandic beer, and relaxed after hikes in hot springs.
All in all, one of the most fulfilling travels I’ve done while at Franklin. Instead of visiting museums, taking city tours, and listening to lectures we were engaged with the environment on a very real level and related everything academic to actual experiences.
Still adjusting to life back in Lugano.
Hope everyone had a great Halloween!
