My Passion Project: Skiing

by beccatran / Oct 29, 2012 /

I absolutely love skiing. Skiing has always been an enjoyable pasttime for me. I have been skiing since I was 5 years old. My sister and I go skiing on the weekends at a place not too far from our house. Every 4 years I watch the competitive ski racers in the Winter Olympics. I envy them so much.

Travel photographers can have a number of different jobs.  Some travel photographers photograph exciting places for travel advertising, others for travel articles in newspapers/magazines.  Some also use the photographs for travel blogging websites/online journals.  Personally, this job interests me a lot as it’s the two things I enjoy most in life: travelling and photography.  Travel photography in newspapers/magazines for me looks to be the most exciting, as you get to share your experience, in photographs, for the world to see.

Having a lot of international experiences can be fascinating and incredibly useful.  There are so many different parts of travelling and, therefore, it’s a bit tricky without it.

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.
