London calling…and blogger answering

I’m a little late posting these pictures, but better late than never, right? My friend Todd and I took a quick weekend jaunt across the Irish Sea to the United Kingdom and London. The story about getting there and back is one all by itself. Most Americans probably didn’t hear, but last week Ireland had […]

Cork, jazz and a bit of blarney

I suppose it’s fitting on this Halloween night in for me to update everyone on my trip last weekend to Cork for the Cork Jazz Festival. IFSA-Butler, our study abroad company, picked us up on Friday morning in a nice big coach. We rode down to Limerick, where we picked up the group of students […]
