Semester At Sea

to be honest with you, i never imagined myself starting a "blog" of sorts. but this website gives me an opportunity to keep all of my travel memories and updates in one place. i am traveling abroad with a program called semester at sea. i named it hope floats for two reasons. first, desmond tutu is a large ambassodor of the semester at sea program and a huge role model of mine, so his quote, "hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness" is where the "hope" section of my website title is taken from. and floats should be pretty obvious, but i am going on a boat and boats float so...hope floats.
