When reading my posts, you may be interested in knowing where I’ve been and how different posts reflect my travels. Here is a list of my adventures abroad.
1990 (5 days) – family vacation to Ontario, CANADA
1998 (10 days) – visited my brother in Wiesbaden, GERMANY; visited Munich, Frankfurt, and Salzburg, AUSTRIA
2000 (4 weeks) – participated in service learning in Escort, SOUTH AFRICA; visited Johannesburg, Durban, and LESOTHO
2002 (8 weeks) – participated in an Italian language and culture study abroad program that went from the top to bottom of ITALY and VATICAN CITY
2003 (8 weeks) – participated in the same program in ITALY again
2003 (10 days) – volunteered in an English language camp with North Point Community Church in Presov and Zilnia, SLOVAKIA
2004 (8 weeks) – served as the graduate assistant for the same study abroad program in ITALY (noticing a theme?) 🙂
2004 (12 days) – visited my best friend in Buenos Aires, ARGENTINA and also visited El Calafate
2005 (6 weeks) – backpacked on my own through SWITZERLAND, ITALY, and FRANCE
2007 (10 days) – completed a site visit of universities in Sycusa, Roma, Fierze, and Milano, ITALY
2008 (3 weeks) – served as program assistant on a study abroad program in JAPAN
2009 (2 weeks) – served as a program assistant on a study abroad program in PERU
2012 (7 days) – spent a wonderful week in Puerto Vallarta, MEXICO with Hubby
In addition to these, I’ve been on family cruises with stops in JAMAICA, BARBADOS, HAITI, and ST. LUCIA. But since this was back in the day when passports weren’t required and they were each 1-day stops, I could definitely stand another visit.
For my wish list, I would love to hit up the UK, VIETNAM, CAMBODIA, EGYPT, BELIZE, ECUADOR, GREECE, TURKEY, JORDAN, RUSSIA, and ISRAEL. But let me be honest…I’d be happy to go anywhere.
Hi Elise….Your mom just sent me the link to your blog. I LOVE it!! Jim and I are trying to cram so much traveling into our retirement years, especially now when we’re “young” enough and healthy enough to enjoy it! Your blog is giving us lots of ideas for future travel–both domestic and international. We’ve been to four of the seven continents. It would be nice to some day reach the other three. Enjoy your exploration of Oklahoma City and the surrounding area. I’m excited to follow your travels on your blog. (Love your homemade postcards!)
It is so good to hear from you, Rachel! Thanks so much for checking out my blog. Keep me posted on your travels too. Your advice for San Diego was wonderful.
Elisa, My name is Devin, and I am a working professional with an interest in moving into the international education field. I was wondering if I might pick your brain for some advice. May I contact you by email? I am reachable at email@example.com. Thanks!
