I was fortunate enough to only have one connection and overall only took about 24 hours of traveling with a 7 hour time difference.

Let’s just say I will never complain about going to the DMV again because this was much worse. Along with all the required preparation, it’s also a good idea to read books and blogs and talk to people who have been here before. That’s the best way to get the useful, real-life advice that will really help. I’ve been here for a little over a month now,…

Happy Fourth of July (one day belated)! While we hope everyone across the United States enjoyed an exciting and energy-filled celebration, we also want to acknowledge that the ole’ U S of A doesn’t stand as the only country with a July birthday.
