“It Never Got Weird Enough For Me” Study Abroad In Non-Traditional Locations Part 2

Posted by on May 12, 2013 in Asia, Europe, Places to Trek, Turkey | 0 comments

This is a story written by my good friend Tristan Hicks.  We met, while on study abroad, in South Africa and realized  we had both come from West Virginia University. From the time we spent in South Africa and back in the states, he has been a strong motivator for me to not only travel, but to travel in a way that pushes all of the normal boundaries travelers tend to place on themselves. This particular article is from VagabondJourney.com where you can follow Tristan’s and others travel stories. This is an excerpt from his most recent article. A truly fitting piece of writing for The Traveling Hobo.  -Evan   There is one big difference between people who Study Abroad in “traditional” locations and those who study abroad in places that are truly different from their home cultures. After speaking with hundreds of returned...

Posted by on Apr 5, 2013 in Europe, Places to Trek, Spain | 0 comments

This is a story sent to me from Erik Bergin from the Traveling Reporter on his travels in southern Spain. Southern Europe is a world of its own. But perhaps not in the way you would think. Erik Bergin on how he found the Wild West, a fairy tale castle and the continent’s largest palm farm on Spain’s narrow roads from Alicante to Málaga, FROM ALICANTE TO MÁLAGA. The journey starts with a heavy walk. I am in Alicante, the south Spanish city along the Mediterranean, which has an old fortress looming on a hilltop, which I attempt to climb. The fortress is called Castillo Santa Barbara. And the air is hot. Being May, summer is already well under way in this part of Europe. But the wind is blowing nicely and the view up here on the hill over sea, city and...

This is a story written by my friend Daniel Hagen, who introduced me to South Africa and showed me its true culture and people. He has recently moved to Chile to teach English. If you would like to hear more of his adventures visit here! -Evan Quite a lot about a small part of Santiago. “I grew up in this town, my poetry was born between the hill and the river, it took its voice from the rain, and like the timber, it steeped itself in the forests.” – Pablo Neruda Saddam Hussein is alive and he drives a taxi in Santiago. I saw him just the other day. I have now spent just over a week in Santiago, having arrived in less than ideal circumstances.  Getting from Brazil to Chile was not a pleasant experience, with a needless...
