    The Gardens

    May 28, 2017 in France

    Upon leaving the Louvre we walked through the gardens headed to Av. des Champs-Elysees. The gardens are a wonderful place to walk and sit and relax. We saw numerous statues and even 2 random goats. At the end of the gardens is the place where Louis the 14th and Marie Antoinette were both publicly executed.

    Garlic aside, I think I found the perfect place to volunteer in India !

    “The Environmental Center is a working model farm of the best environmental practices demonstrating traditional and innovative sustainable techniques, an educational center for teaching students and the public about  environmental issues and solutions, and a platform for engaging conversation between spirituality, culture, and concern for the environment.
    Permacultural practices, cultivating onions, garlic, chilies, tomatoes, eggplants, cucumbers, and more for vegetables, mangoes, jackfruit, guava, neem, and more for fruits and trees, lentils and chickpeas for grains, an Ayurvedic herb garden, an organic dairy with 15 cows, and operational sustainable technology.
    Volunteers can expect simple vegetarian food.
    Maintenance work on all farm facilities can be expected (solar panels and biogas generators for power production, composting for soil production).
    Additionally, as the farm aims to become an education center, plenty of work can be done building informative signage, pathways, presentations, guest facilities, curriculums, and leading students and teachers in activities that teach environmental awareness. Finally, we sponsor research, discussion, and engagement between spirituality, culture, and the environment in the Indian context.
    And of course in Varanasi there is unrivalled opportunity to engage further in Hindu religion and philosophy, classical Hindustani music and dance, and more: Sanskrit Language, Pali Language, Urdu Language, Bhojpuri Language, Vedic Studies, Hindu Philosophy, Indian Architecture, Kathak Dancing, Tabla, Sitar, Sarangi, Harmonium, Yoga, Meditation, Ayurveda, Weaving, Indian Literature and Poetry, Jain Studies, Theosophy, Bhakti Studies, etc. “

    One month will NEVER be enough.

    Okay, guys...

    May 21, 2017 in France

    I don't even know where to start. I think I've been putting this off because I know I won't remember everything I have to say.

    First of all...Amsterdam is amazing. It's a beautiful, clean, and eco-friendly city with a lot of character. The canals and architecture combine for an amazing background. Bikes...millions and millions of bikes. They are everywhere. They take their bikes and bike lanes very seriously. Bike lanes are just as legitimate as car lanes. As part of our class, we are learning about substance use as a global problem. We've gotten to visit an addiction treatment center and the international criminal court. We've been on an "underground tour" by a former addict who took us around the city a bit, telling us about his life when he was homeless and addicted to drugs (and his life since then). We've also had guest lecturers talk to us about drug policies and mentalities. Most of the points for our actual class are coming from daily reflection papers and quizzes.

    There has obviously been a lot of sightseeing too. We've taken a boat tour in the canals, we've been to the Van Gogh museum, the Rijksmuseum, the flower market, Madurodam (a miniature version of Amsterdam), and much more.

    This weekend was our free weekend, so we were welcome to travel somewhere nearby on our own. Two friends and I decided to spend the weekend in Paris. Today was so long and my legs and feet are SO tired, but we did so much. We got up this morning and walked around, awe-struck. We went to the Louvre, the catacombs, and the Eiffel Tower, and each one was amazing. Seeing things in person that you've only ever seen in pictures and movies is so much fun. It never does quite feel real - even now I feel like I could wake up and be at home, in the middle of finals week or something! We ate at a French restaurant and I tried escargot for the first time (not quite as bad as I was expecting...the texture was strange but they had a nice pesto sauce or butter on it that made the taste pretty good).

    Everything has still been amazing so far. It feels completely unreal, in the most wonderful way. :) This website won't let me add very many pictures to each post, so I'll do a few over the next day with some of the pictures I have!

    Paseando por Paris

    February 21, 2016 in France

    Despues del Louvre fuimos caminando hasta Angelina, a comprar el chocolate de la tia. 

    La tienda tenia muchas cosas ricas muy bien presentadas. Habia macarons y probamos algunos. En el cafe habia tanta gente que la cola llegaba a la calle.

    Seguimos caminando hasta el metro y en la estacion concorde se veia todo como si fuera la peli Zootopia. 
    Estaba todo buenisimo, parecia medio de verdad.

    Reflections

    September 17, 2016 in France

    A summary of my experiences

    Flights - not nearly as bad as I was expecting. The extra room/bed made all the difference

    London - so much hotter than I expected. The amount of people really shocked me.
    My favourite activity was probably The bodyguard. I also really liked Hyde Park.

    Munich - the English gardens were my favourite. I enjoyed my meal of Spatzle and ---.
    What surprised me most - the amount of potato I ate.

    Innsbruck - I wish I had spent more time in Innsbruck. Pressed to pick a favouite / the cable car to the alps.

    Achensee - there was very little not to like. Once I reached the Dripping rock I literally thought "I can go home now"
    I surprised myself with the difficulty of the walks I did.
    Half board was great.

    Dijon - I don't think I saw Dijon's full potential. Not getting the hang of the public transport contributed to that. I had some good food though!

    Languages - in each of the continental Europe countries I stayed in instructions in the hotel etc were usually given in three languages - the language of the country, english and then it varied.
    Germany had french, Austria had Italian and France had Spanish.
