  • The Last Day

    Well, today was the last day in Leuven. I’m going to miss being able to wake up on a Saturday morning to go cruise the market for fresh baked goods and fruit like I did this morning. I had fantastic apple cake, strawberries and cherries all for under 5 euro. We did a brief program […]

  • Antwerp

    Today was the last officially scheduled day of our trip to Belgium. Tomorrow we do a program evaluation and debriefing, but have a free day otherwise. I think I am going to need it if I want to be packed and ready to go by Sunday morning! On the docket for today was a trip […]

  • The Last Day in Brussels

    Look at this! I am definitely back on track now! Consecutive posts, I think that I’m back into the rhythm just in time for the trip to come to a close. I don’t want to be too preemptive in saying that because there are still two full days left here in Belgium, however things really […]

  • A Lot of Ground to Cover

    Alright, this is going to be a little bit lengthy because I have been such a failure at blogging the last little while. I actually find myself feeling guilty during the day when I don’t blog…I suppose the main reason I feel that way is because I know that my mom and grandma are reading […]

  • Blog Failure…

    So many of you might have noticed that I haven’t posted a blog in the last two days! I can assure you that catching up is of top priority, however, I’m going to need a little more time. The absence of a posting for the last two days is pretty much directly attributable to what […]

  • The Battle of Waterloo

    Today was another ‘cultural’ day for the group. We woke up nice and early and headed to the site of the Battle of Waterloo to watch a reenactment. This reenactment is only done once every 3 years and drew a crowd of approximately 55,000 people. This was my first experience riding in a car in […]

  • Grand Béguinage

    Yesterday was our first free day in Belgium. Everyone took the opportunity to sleep in, however, I think that most people woke up at a reasonable hour for fear of sleeping away an entire day. Myself, I got up around 10am and hit the road for a run. At this point in my ‘getting back […]

  • Worlds Collide

    A round of applause please…I am now officially back on correct blogging schedule. I started writing this draft at about 4:10pm your time (on Friday) which amounts to about 25 minutes after I posted details about Thursday’s activities. I got distracted in the middle of writing this post and have ended up holding this one […]

  • Just Keep Running…

    Alright, so I’m still a day behind on my blogs. I really wanted to be productive yesterday, so I made sure that I did one blog and then enjoyed some good quality time in Leuven. So, what happened yesterday you ask. Well, let’s just say that for most people it was a day to just […]

  • NATO is Kind of Cool…Just Saying…

    As you may have noticed, I fell off the ‘posting’ every night band wagon yesterday. Well, I am back on the wagon and will do my best to update you on the goings on of the last two days. Yesterday started out bright and early once again. Luckily for us, the weather has been absolutely […]
