Talking About International Experiences

by beccatran / Oct 11, 2012 /

I’m a grade 10 student taking a year off to travel abroad with my family, and I’m interested in hearing about someone with lots of international experience so I decided to ask several people I know that have wanderlust and travel.

Want more from your movie viewing than entertainment? I do, too, especially when watching movies with our daughter. We love to explore movies about the world (and that’s another post) – and watch old movies.

Johnny’s Many Lives

by Lukas Bruihler / Oct 05, 2012 /

With each new place you go, you can have a new start. Take my friend Johnny, for example. In all of his 65 years of life, he has had to start over many times, in nearly all of the places he has lived.

You should go live in Brazil, or Thoughts on Film

by William Wellman / Oct 04, 2012 /

When you think of career paths that benefit from international experience, one that you usually won’t think of is the janitorial business. That’s because it doesn’t, really. But another career path you usually won’t think of is film.

Travelling around the world can be so adventurous. Getting to experience new cultures, lifestyles, and foods can allow your perception on a country to change. Taking a trip abroad can certainly have an impact on your life afterwards - for instance seeing the world differently or being more grateful for what you have. In the case of my teacher Miss Knight, she never thought that her travel experience to Eastern Europe would lead her to become the future Mrs. Croft.

My Summer: Highlights of Family Travel in Europe

by Lukas Bruihler / Sep 05, 2012 /

This summer I did a lot of things, all of which I cannot tell you, because it would be too much. I will include as many highlights as possible, and will tell you a little about each of them.

First, a few days after school ended for us, we went to the part of Tara Canyon in Montenegro. Tara Canyon is the second deepest canyon in the world, only 500 meters shallower than the Grand Canyon. We spent two days there, the first one we went rafting, and the second day we went hiking to the highest point in the canyon.

Take the High Road During Travels

by Heddi Cundle / Sep 01, 2012 /

It’s always easy to take a road trip or book a flight to a destination - but maybe consider now mixing and matching your travels. I’ve done this many times, and it’s brilliant.

Sitting on a plane or in a car can be really boring sometimes. If I got $1 for every time I’ve perched myself on a seat for 12 hours on a long haul flight or flattened my rear cemented into a car seat, I’d be able to buy a lifetime’s supply of chocolate with the proceeds. I kid you not.

Summer in Tokyo

by jiawenp / Aug 20, 2012 /

I remember tripping over myself in my dash through the automatic doors that separated Narita airport and the outside world for that first breath of Japanese air – of the late spring/early summer cool that I had romanticized for the last 6 years. Strangely, it was the first time that, when landing in a foreign country, I didn’t feel like I was out of place, but rather, surreal – like an explorer who finally steps off the shaking waves onto the home he had been dreaming of.

Welcome to … Cape Cod!

by Kathryn Blanco / Aug 11, 2012 /

A wonderful, welcoming place, Cape Cod is an exciting and refreshing vacation destination that anyone would enjoy. For one thing, hundreds of outdoor adventures are available, including biking long trails through shady forest, past marshes and cranberry bogs; parasailing, soaring hundreds, or even over a thousand, feet in the air over the sparkling sea;  and speeding through the crashing surf on a jet ski, getting splashed with the sea spray.
