Returning Home


The first day back isn’t that bad. It gives you time to relax and get back to normal, but the second day back sucks. I really don’t want to go back to school and I certainly don’t want to go back to work for the rest of the semester. This spring break has been one […]

Wake up call was 6:30 and we had to meet in the Paris lounge at 7:30. Stood in line for a long time, walked straight through customs, loaded the cars, and headed home (9:45).

Woke up at 10 and got outside for the last half-hour of sun before it became overcast. We took our time at lunch and then spent the afternoon reading and playing games in the library. After our afternoon of leisure we got ready for dinner and then met for sushi and drinks on the promenade. […]

Woke up around 9. Had breakfast and headed into shore. Nich, Sean, Suz, Nikki, Amy, Rachel and I hired Victor to give us a tour of the city and take us to the Mayan ruins. Victor was very knowledgeable and gave us a lot of interesting information about the island and daily life in a […]

We (Paul, Catherine, Suz, Rachel, and I) left Tech around 6:30 and immediately got stuck in speedway traffic. Fought our way through that until 7:30 and then cruised to Tampa with a couple rest stops along the way. Suz, Rachel and I watched The Girl Next Door, but had to share 1 set of headphones. […]
