If we can save enough money we will probably go on a trip to some other country the Spring just before school starts. But only if we have enough moving money saved up as well. We may go to Japan or maybe back to Turkey, we haven't totally decided yet.

Idealist.org is pretty good for liberal jobs/volunteer opportunities.


Been meaning to do some volunteer work. Used to volunteer at a neighbor's horse farm a couple of years ago. I'll look into these two sites to see what kind of results they have.

Also been considering if I can't get an office job or an HR job to just volunteer some place then start applying again after a few months.

I vote you go someplace new.


Then the question becomes where. CE suggested Japan since it's the one place I've always wanted to visit my whole life. It seems to be a very common travel destination among people in Western WA - most people I know have visited.

Even though Japan is a popular travel destination for Seattleites my interest mostly came from my best friend in Kindergarten and first grade who was from Japan. She was living here because her father's work brought them to the US for a few years. She moved away half way through 1st grade. She used to teach me Japanese and we both shared a love for Sailor Moon. Then I got older and became an anime geek. :P I think the Japanese countryside looks beautiful and the cities seem very vibrant. I've always enjoyed learning about Japanese culture.

Also this is interesting:

I would love to see the actual most common foreign travel destinations for each state to see if they match up with the most common search results.


If we didn't go to Turkey or Japan I'm uncertain what place to choose. I'm curious what places you guys are most interested in visiting and why.

When I was looking at a Huffington Post Article I saw this article to the side about Supercentenarians.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/02/1 ... 55570.html

I've always had an interest in old people because my great grandma was a supercentenarian. Before she died in 2011 she had been the verified 7th oldest person living in the world. She almost made it into the top 100 verified list of the oldest people to ever live but not quite. She was the oldest person in Kansas for many years.

I used to love to listen to her stories. They were a mix of fiction and combining memories of her past together with things in the present. Even though her memory wasn't great she didn't realize it so it didn't make her unhappy. She told us some really crazy stories through the years. Also if she called you and got your answering machine she'd start cursing like a sailor. But the older she got the sweeter she got. For one she stopped being racist with age sometime between being 100 - 113 years old. The last few years of her life all she really wanted was hugs and kisses. Though she was still really manipulative even at 113.

Here is an interview of her that was done by a friend of my uncle:


She says some crazy stuff. Lol. :mrgreen: Though not as strange as some stories she had took me.

1. Ireland - I'm 7/8ths Irish and have quite a bit of family in Ireland and Northern Ireland.
2. The Himalayas - I'd love to just wander and hike through the mountains.
3. Alaska - Getting lost for a week in Denali sounds fun and relaxing.
4. New Zealand - such a beautiful country with lots to do outdoors.
5. Tanzania - hike the area around Mt. Kilimanjaro and then climb the mountain.

I'd also love to go to a World Cup, but Russia in 2018 and Qatar in 2022 don't sound appealing.

Are there any clubs or organizations that will impact your final school selection?

It gets sent out in all the mailings - lists of organizations. Does any of that impact your final choice?

What if LSAC sneakily released scores two weeks early so no one would suspect it?

I would love to visit my motherland, Korea. If you're into asian cultures, Korea is similar to Japan and Taiwan in terms of the urban culture. Why? I haven't gone in over 8 years and would to see some family there.

I would want to visit the moon

I have been on 4 continents
I have been on 3 oceans
So have billions of others

But only a very small number have been on the moon
If I won some major lottery prize, that is where I would toss my proceeds.
Might blow up on the launch pad, die on the way, never make it back ... but it would still be a memorable trip.
Oh and the pyramids, I want to see them. I have gotten close, very close. But not yet gotten to stand in front of the Great Pyramids

1) Germany - family heritage
2) The Rest of Europe - If I'm already over there, why the hell not. I especially would love to see Carnival in France.
3) Redwood National Forest - cause redwoods
4) NYC - cause broadway etc
5) South America, probably Brazil - I love the culture and imagine the food is delish

One of my bucket list, but probably never gonna happen, items is to live with an African tribe for ~6 months, because they are some of the few societies that haven't been significantly influenced by Western culture and I think seeing all of their traditions (coming of age ceremonies, etc) would be really really cool. But being that I'm a white female this could be extremely dangerous and probably won't ever happen.

Latin America for me.

I've spent time in most parts of the world (lived in Middle East, lots of time spent in Korea/China, spent long stretches all over Europe, southern Africa, etc.), but never been in Latin America other than some islands & Mexico. Colombia, Brasil, Venezuela (though, prob not right now), Peru, Chile, etc., are all really appealing. I may get down to Honduras this year, so that'd be nice.

West Africa as well. Never really been. I like Senegalese, Ivorian food and culture. Nigeria's hectic and chaotic pace is intriguing. Never been to the south of Nigeria, where a lot of that chaotic commerce takes place.

Oh, also the Caucasus region. I was supposed to go there a couple of years ago but the visa process was annoying. But yeah, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Georgia would be cool. Would be interesting to check out Dagestan as well.
