I started this blog a few years ago to write about my study abroad trip to Argentina. Then, for three months I worked in Antarctica as a meteorologist at the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station. I’ve traveled around New Zealand, on my first-ever solo trip—and visited a lot of Lord of the Rings filming locations! Now I’m in grad school at Columbia University studying Climate and Society. As always, there are many more adventures that lay ahead!
