Just a quick note – so there has been a glitch on the TravelBlog website, and anyone who has tried subscribing to the blog hasn't been added to the email list. Until it gets fixed, just message me your email on Facebook or private message me on here so I can manually add the addresses to the list. Sorry about that!

Snoop Dogg told us to be at the school by 7am sharp and although we had serious doubts that we would leave anytime close to this, we were on time just in case.

Hello all! After a bit of debate I've decided to start another blog for this trip. Just a couple things: firstly, internet, along with electricity and water, comes and goes so I don't know how often I'll be updating this but I'll try for about once a week or so, and secondly, this blog is going to be more of a personal journal so it'll be pretty uncensored and likely randomly thrown together as I jot down my thoughts. Anyways, I hope you enjoy! This whole trip came together really fast and a lot of people didn't even know I was leaving so here is some of the background information. A pretty last minute opportunity to volunteer in Uganda kind of fell in my lap after talking with a professor at the WCVM (Western College of ... read more
