September 7, 2014
Today, we got up and went to the Apartheid museum. Obviously, I learned about the Apartheid in school, but entering through separate doors, reading the stories,  and seeing the exhibits really humbled me. It saddens me that throughout history europeans have come to lands that is not theirs, kill the natives, steal the land, and feel justified in their doings. How can you sleep at night? I had no idea about the severity of the Apartheid. It reminded me a lot of segregation in the United...

Boats, Lamb, & Ostrich

September 6, 2014 - Johannesburg, South Africa
Today, we got up early and took a boat cruise on the river near the Vaal Dam. I love being on the water! It is so relaxing and soothing. We danced, sang, and ate. The food was delicious! In South Africa, the primary dish is meat not a lot of fruits and vegetables lol. We eat a lot of meat here lol. After the boat ride, we headed back to Johannesburg for a night on the town. We went to Moyo's. Thre was a lot of excellent food! We had a party platter appetizer, and I had ostrich salad and a...

Safaris and Fun

September 5, 2014 - Johannesburg, South Africa
Today, we woke up early to go on a safari! Most images displayed of Africa in general are scenes of huts, animals, hungry children. I have not experienced this Africa. Instead, I've experienced a city just like any major city with luxury cars, restuarants, chic hangout spots, etc. However, today...we are off to see a different side of the country! We pulled into a red dirt park, the lion and hippo park. We drove to the back of the park where we had lunch. Immediately, I noticed the stares. My...

Al het materiaal in één doktersjas!

September 9, 2014 - Moshi, Tanzania
Ik ben gevraagd om voor de weblog van de opleiding logopedie aan de HAN in Nijmegen af en toe een verhaal te schrijven over mijn werk hier in Tanzania. Met alle plezier heb ik onderstaand verhaal geschreven: Sinds eind november 2013 werk ik als vrijwilliger in het Kilimanjaro Christian Medical Centre (KCMC) in Moshi, Tanzania. Dit is het tweede academische ziekenhuis van Tanzania, een land dat ongeveer 45 miljoen inwoners heeft en één van de armste landen ter wereld is. In heel Tanzania...

1. Argentinien

September 8, 2014 - Buenos Aires, Argentina
Hola, nachdem ich meinen Master erfolgreich abgeschlossen habe, habe ich mich auf eine Reise begeben. im Folgenden könnt ihr alles mitverfolgen:     1.Argentinien Da ich nun schon einmal dabei bin, werde ich ein wenig die Erlebnisse in Argentinien schildern. Unsere Reise begann am 22. August 2014, als ich um ungefähr 7 Uhr morgens das Hotelzimmer Nummer 12 im Hotel America in Buenos Aires betrat. Eigentlich wurde es als Gran Hotel America angekündigt, doch meine Freundin und ich einigten...

Welcome to Africa

September 4, 2014 - Johannesburg, South Africa
I was so caught up in preparing for my trip to South Africa that I completely forgot to drink up the moment. It was not until I sat on my eighteen hour Ethiopian Airlines flight that I finally realized how major this is. I was traveling to Africa for the second time; my first time being Morocco. More importantly, I was sharing this moment with one of my best friends. I missed this travel rush. I missed trying authentic ethnic foods, language barriers, and often the organized chaos I...

Fontenoy to Saint-Jean-de-Losne

September 1, 2014 - Saint-Jean-de-Losne, France
The south side of the canal des Vosges took us to the town of Corre where we caught up with some Swedish friends on board Honey Pie, a yacht which they are taking down to the Mediterranean and round to Rome. We then joined the petite Saone which is still a delight. It is the busiest waterway we have been on this year with many more hire boats than elsewhere, but we have some favourite ports and restaurants which we were able to visit and enjoy. The weather has been very good this year, but...

August 29, 2014 - Mityana, Uganda
It’s been wonderful, confusing, frustrating, joyful homecoming back to Uganda. I’ve been able to spend some time in both Mityana as well as Jinja, visiting both the Walusimbi family and also all of the children at The Michelle and Julia Hoffman Memorial Children’s Home. It’s amazing to see what can take place in just a matter of four months. The changes, both good and bad, have really amazed me and for all of the things that continue to take place I have to just say that I’m in awe...

Reaching Hands

August 10, 2014 - Amery, Wisconsin, United States
As I sit here this Saturday night listening to the song “Prayer of the Children,” I can’t help but think about yet another journey to Uganda that awaits me in just 3 days. “Give me loving arms…..” I hear these voices in my head that I know are awaiting me…the giggles, the screams, the sheer joy of feeling loved…and I find myself thanking God for another opportunity to be doing his work across the world for so many children whom I now love not just because they’re His...

Sarreguemines to Fontenoy-le-Chateau

August 6, 2014 - Fontenoy-le-Château, France
The canal de la Sarre, which was originally built for the transport of coal, took us through some border towns and up to the level of the canal which joins the Rhine and the Marne (only theoretically, as the Arzviller lift which is essential to the journey is now broken down and not scheduled for repair!). The canal goes through some beautiful countryside, but is very little used by boaters except for German boats making their way to or from France. As we rejoined the Rhine/Marne canal we...

Worüber mache ich mir mehr Sorgen?

July 31, 2014
Jetzt habe ich mich seid April schon wieder nicht mehr gemeldet. Aber mein Alltag hier verändert sich auch nicht groß, vieles ist Routine geworden. Die Gruppen und ihre Teilnehmer kommen und gehen, ich darf viele tolle Menschen kennen lernen und viele habe ich auch ins Herz geschlossen. Jedes Mal das Gleiche zu schreiben, wird ja aber auch für euch langweilig. Daher heute mal etwas ganz Anderes, ein Thema, dass momentan in fast jeder zweiten e-mail Anfrage vorkommt, die ich bekomme - der...

July 28 2014 Brisbane - A Final Word

July 28, 2014 - Brisbane, Australia
    Well, well, well; Burns was right when he said 'the best-laid schemes o' mice an' men / Gang aft agley' and our plans to finish the journal before we left Paris have finally been rounded off. And what? Only eight months after our return. My daily diary recorded the main points of our trip and Margaret and I have used that to complete the entries for several missing days, some days where we did very little and had not bothered to write an entry and some days where one or the other of us...

June 14, 2014 - Oakland, California, United States
  Although the Oakland Athletics baseball team is one of the most historical and truly unique teams I’ve researched, their ballpark is unremarkable, at best! The A’s were one of eight charter teams of the American Baseball League founded in 1901. And many of the most recognizable names in baseball have been a part of the Athletics organization over the years: Connie Mack, Ty Cobb, Jimmie Fox, Nelson Fox, Lefty Grove, Catfish Hunter, Rollie Fingers, Reggie Jackson, Ricky Henderson, Mark...

Luxembourg and Germany

July 26, 2014
After a very enjoyable return trip to London when we managed to fit a lot in and to catch up with many friends (including Djokovic winning his quarter-final match at Wimbledon), we returned to Metz where the club had looked after Cassandra as promised: and headed off towards Luxembourg. We immediately noticed a culture change with everything a lot more organised and orderly! All the clubs we stayed at had huge welcoming signs and visitors pontoons clearly marked. There was often a harbour...

A Rainy Day in Perth

July 23, 2013 - Perth, United Kingdom
Today was planned as a sleep until we wake day and then head to Scone Castle in the afternoon and take advantage of the long July evenings. The morning light was very subdued and we certainly did sleep late and then woke to the sound of thunder, heavy grey skies and continual rain. Instead of heading out for far fields we slipped out to the supermarket for a few odds and ends. While we were at Morrison's Supermarket we had lunch at the café then sneaked back home with only a slight...

Visiting Caroline

September 14, 2013 - Buxton, United Kingdom
Today we drove over to Nottingham to meet Will at Caroline's place. We arrived at Caroline's about 1pm and so had a good chance to meet her, Owain and Florence and Eloise before Will and Bex arrived about 2pm. What with lunch and talking, and talking and eating it was late afternoon before we left. Now we have agreed to send Caroline an invite to our travel journal I had better be careful what I say. Honestly though it was delightful to meet them all and I was struck by how much they all...

Buxton Again

September 12, 2013 - Buxton, United Kingdom
  Today it was time for us to leave Iceland and return to England. What a horrible thought! No not leaving Iceland or going to England, in fact we were looking forward to the spacious surrounds of the Buckingham Hotel in Buxton where our other suitcase was waiting. It was the early start that gave us the horrors. Our Flybus tickets to catch the 9:15am flight meant a pickup at 5:30am which in turn meant getting up at 3am to be ready (well for me to be ready anyway, Margaret is better at...

June 29, 2013 - Portrush, United Kingdom
We headed out early in the morning to see the Yeats Exhibition but as it turned out the exhibition is closed on Saturday so we had to content ourselves with wandering the stairwell and looking at some of the items displayed there before we went back for our bags and once more hit the road. Of course it is not far from Sligo to Drumcliff where Yeats is buried so we stopped at the church for a wander around and a contemplative look at his gravestone. The weather was not conducive to hanging...

June 28, 2013 - Sligo, Ireland
The weather was misty again this morning but it did little to dampen our enthusiasm for Sinead's breakfast. It would be so easy to get used to being looked after like this. We packed our bags and went to fix our bill and say goodbye to Sinead and Kevin. They were full of suggestions of places to see as we drove north and if we stopped at all of them we would probably need a month or two to reach Belfast, especially when we take so long to look around at each stop. We were no sooner on the...

"Vinnie" and "A Year in Kerry"

June 1, 2013 - Ballinskelligs, Ireland
Ahhh! A quiet and peaceful day in Kerry. And what a gorgeous view to find when we wake. We went out for a walk and found an advertisement for a talk about the Skelligs and the Sea to be given at the Community Hall tonight so we mentally made an appointment for ourselves. We took the opportunity to catch up with some of our journal entries and to check the operation of our Wireless Broadband SIM card. Using our little WiFi router was not going to work as the built-in networks were the...

Off to Ballinskelligs

May 31, 2013 - Sydney, Australia
After another good breakfast at the Hotel St George we went up to pack our bags and get ready for our trip to Ballinskelligs. We had to get out to the Hertz Depot out on the south-western edge of the city on the South Circular Road so we had the receptionist book a taxi for us and waited in the lounge for it to arrive. It wasn't very long before our driver arrived and we loaded the bags and headed off bidding farewell to Dublin City. The driver told us a bit about the city and himself as we...

Chinley Chapel and Max's ancestors

August 17, 2013 - Sydney, Australia
My (Max's) mother's paternal line descends from the Bennet Family (variously spelled as Bennett and Bennet) of the Chinley area. One of my main plans when visiting Derbyshire was to visit Chinley Independent Chapel as many of my ancestors have memorials in the churchyard. The family originally seem to have been landholders and farmers in the area as well as members of the Independent Church and I am sure there is more to be discovered once the connections are established. For the moment I...

Kapitola 28 – Párty, párty!

June 30, 2014 - Richland, Washington, United States
Zdravím všechny! Můj život zde se pomalu usazuje, ale to se vlastně po měsíci dá čekat. Přesto se ale rozhodně nedá říct, že bych se snad nudil...   Tak především, celý guesthouse, na kterém bydlím, je plný stážistů ve věku cca 20-22 let. Co to znamená, si určitě dokážete dobře představit. Vše v podstatě dokonale vystihuje včerejšek, kdy jsme nejprve měli celé odpoledne pool párty u bazénu, poté si dali šlofíka, a v noci jsme měli barbecue...

Western Australia

June 26, 2014 - Karratha, Australia
Hello every one i am so sorry for the late update of our travels but we have had no reception at all for so long. At the monemt we are north of Karratha W.A camping at a lovely sea side spot called Clearaville. The last entry to my blog was back when we crossed the Nullabour, from there we continued onto Esperance where i just had to climb this huge rock to get the photo of the large rock being held up by the tinny rock.  Albany and around the bottom of W.A for a few weeks doing the odd...

AT&T Park - Home of the San Francisco Giants

June 12, 2014 - San Francisco, California, United States
San Francisco Giants - AT&T Ballpark It was love at first sight! There in front of me was the prominent exterior architectural feature of AT&T Park--one of the two 122 feet clock towers. And it was already 10:55. I quickly realized I would not have enough time before the game started to walk around the park, both exterior and interior, to get all my photos. But I would give it 110%. Beginning at the front entrance where fans gather and meet was the 9-foot statue of Willie Mays.  We had to...
