What do I want this blog to do?

Educate.  Travel is knowledge, but the next best thing is reading.  Before a trip, I arm myself with information.  I studied abroad in England, but before leaving I spent hours looking for firsthand accounts and suggestions on what to expect, how much money to bring, where to visit, and what to pack.  I want to create a space that brings all the information necessary to a traveler into one place.  I give reasons as to why you should travel and use my expertise in studying in the United Kingdom to explain the process of planning and applying for a study away program, give accounts of my experiences, and provide travel tips. Whether you are interested in studying abroad, backpacking, or heading out for a vacation, I want this blog to both inform and inspire.

What do I want to do?

Teach- whether it is primary, secondary, university, or otherwise, I want to teach English (literature and writing).

Write- I want to write poetry, academic papers about language and literature, and about travel.

Read- All I have ever wanted to do is read great books.  You can check out my reading list here, or share yours with me here!
