Around-the-World Semester® II: The Reality Show

Sometimes, life can feel like a television show. The Around-the-World Semester® is often a whirlwind of faces, places, and stories happening all around you. On certain days, things can get a little complicated. Lydia shows us that on days like that, even the little things can be dramatic.

Cat Ba Bicycle Interview


From time to time, we try to sit down with our Rounders and catch up with how they are doing. However, because of the nature of our journey, these conversations often happen in places that are out of the ordinary. Here, I have a typical conversation with Kristine as we ride bicycles around an island paradise in Vietnam known as Cat Ba.

Culture Night Talent Show

Part of our service time in Vietnam included helping to teach English at
an international university in Thai Ngyuen. The university asked the
Around-The-World (r) II team to participate in a “Culture Night” where
multiple international universities had been invited to perform various
acts. This is one of our presentations for the evening, a rendition of
“Ordinary People” by John Legend, featuring Seth as lead guitar/vocals,
Howard as vocals, Alex on the djembe, and Hayden as the microphone
stand.
