Travel History: 2011

Travel History: 2011

2011 is divided. I spent the first 4 months completing my undergraduate degree in Ottawa, Canada. I only made it out of the city during my Reading Week and headed to Mount Tremblant, Quebec to snowboard. In February I accepted a job in Buenos Aires, Argentina and moved there in May. I stayed in my position until December 2011 and then began traveling South America for the last leg of 2011 and into 2012. So Far – I’ve had an incredible year.

Merry Christmas to Everybody far and wide!

I was in luck, friends of my friend live in Sucre Bolivia and decided they would adopt me for the few days I was in town so I was not left alone over Christmas (Although I was barely alone in a hostel full of foreigners). But it was EXTREMELY exciting to celebrate Christmas in a different country with locals and experience it through others eyes.

Biggestest difference from Canadian Christmas?
