I went to Nepal to do earthquake relief and the training program for it offered 3 vegetarian meals per day. So I decided what better time to check this one off! On the 28th day I witnessed a traditional animal sacrificing ceremony and lo...

I made friends with the kid who sat by me in my 8th grade science class. He told me he wanted to become a pilot. I said, "Sweet! When you do, will you fly me to the closest Krispy Kreme to get donuts"? He said, "Sure!!" 5 years later, we...

I met a girl from France while I was traveling abroad. She told me she would take me to Amsterdam, if I took her to Vegas/ The Grand Canyon. So, I did! :) Can't wait for that trip!

I've always wanted to hitch hike. I decided I wouldn't do it alone though. I made a homie from Malaysia down south who said to me one day- "Lets meet up in Sao Paulo and hitchhike to Rio." "You better be serious!" I said. So then we went...

This one has always been one of the things I've wanted to do my whole life. Thanks to living in Brazil for a couple months, I found out from some locals that you can actually hike to the top, instead of paying the crazy tourist price to ...

I decided to study abroad in Brazil once. One of our weekend trips planned was to the sand dunes! We got there and they had camels to ride, but we had to choose between that and riding 4 wheelers. I convinced everyone riding camels was w...

I met a guy who was registered for this big famous marathon, then blew out his knee. He gave me his spot! Not even knowing it was on my list. :) Ran for free, and had a blast doing it!

My mom told me about this live nativity thing close to home that was going to be in the Guinness Book of World Records. I jumped right on the idea, and she was thrilled! She thought I wanted to reenact Jesus' birth for spiritual reasons....

The fernett is un-pictured, only because it was in the fridge getting ready to drink. :) Couch surfed with this guy once, and ended up going back about 5 times! After our time together, he told me I inspired him to quit the military (aft...

Upon signing up for a study abroad program, we were told we would have host parents, and a host family. I got down to Recife to find out my "host parents" were 2 couples, only a few years older then me. Unmarried, just boyfriends and gir...

Pretty self explanatory ;) Met this kiwi through Couch Surf! Took this picture because we snuck his giant dog into a bar without anyone noticing. :) Success! Minus the part where you can't see the dog in the pic. Read More

My mom lived in Tonga for 6 years and put me in Polynesian dance when I was little. Poi balls are one of the harder of the styles to master. I got the chance to go to a Maori village and get help and learn a new move from a Maori herself...

Where to start with this one. I worked for an NGO for a year, in exchange for them paying my program fees to volunteer abroad one summer. When we got there it was our job as volunteers to go find out what the needs of the community were....

Just felt like swimming with 15 bull sharks with no cage or wall, reaching out and touching some as they swam by, and watching them get fed giant fish heads 20 feet in front of me. I mean, haven't you?? Read More

I studied Chinese in college, and my first time over seas was to China. So at least my bandwagon character has some meaning! First night of my China trip I snuck out of the hotel and found a tattoo parlor in Tian jin. The guy said I was ...

Checking off this one was a huge one for me. As much as I wanted to check off my whole bucket list and intended to, something about the great wall of china as a 16 year old just didn't reaaalllyyy sound too realistic. It was a nice dream...
