Samos, Greece

I just returned from spending a month working in a refugee camp in Samos, Greece. I’m was with an NGO called Samos Volunteers. We’re a grassroots movement that grew from aiding locals supporting the crisis to a structured program offering adult education and much more. Catch up on my journey as I navigate this tough situation and learn about the ongoing European crisis.

Munich, Germany

Despite being the home of the Oktoberfest, Munich deserves so much more than a 2-week merry making adventure. Compared to the rest of German cities, Munich is a charming a little slice of European paradise. Explore history in the old town, satisfy your inner geek at the many museums, work on your tan at the Isar, cater to your inner party monster at one of the many clubs, take a day trip to explore castles and mountains and of course eat all the pretzels and drink all the beer! Prost!
