Hello readers (Mom and Dad). I’m Emma.

Before you get much further into my blog, let me introduce myself. I am a third year undergraduate student at the University of Iowa, studying Biology and Spanish.

(More importantly: Most Friday nights you can find me watching Planet Earth in bed after vacuuming my small apartment. I hate birds. I like Bon Iver, my dog Josie, and hand written cards. The most important thing I packed was a locket holding picture of my little sister, that lays warmly on my chest).

This is my first travel blog, made from a small borrowed iPad between the scattered wifi signals in India. I am not a writer, I am not eloquent, and my perspective is so often wrong. Please bare with me, and I’ll do my best to share our adventures (the good and the bad) and myself (the good and the bad) with you all.
