ON THE THIRD OF JULY, I was on a plane on my way back 'home' to Orlando, Florida. During the summer, I would eventually travel quite a lot - from Orlando to New Hampshire, stopping on the way in North Carolina, New York, Massachusetts, and New Jersey.

Look, look up there, I can see it now! The first sighting I DON'T TURN AROUND. I want the Wall to find me, and not vice versa. If it's as big as they say, well, let it impress me by showing itself. I keep still in the bus looking out the window. I'm close to the front, since I get dizzy in the back of the bus. About fifteen minutes...

WE'RE SLOWLY DRIVING up a dirt road with eucalyptus trees lined up at each side. A total of 19 pairs of eyes are looking up. “There” shouts Liam, “up on that tree.” For a second I’m reminded of the shout of “Tierra!” given by Rodrigo the Triana from the Pinta. In a moment, we’ve all jumped out of the van. There, up on the eucalyptus tree, looking down at us...

Sydney! Yes, we are here! Hugs, smiles, and catching up takes a few minutes in a verbal cascade of enthusiasm. We are back together - our first re-encounter since we began this unprecedented journey back in September in Stockholm. It's a perfect time to pause and reflect on that which now spreads out behind as we look ahead with eager expectation. There have been a lot of firsts in the...

By Marta Guevara, TGS Teacher We’re Not In School Yet? A group of teachers and students sat in my room as we discussed a number of "girl" topics. As our conversation started to expand to a more general discussion, one of our students remarked, “my friends are home have been asking me if we have started school yet, but I keep telling them we even haven’t SEEN the school.” I...

Yes, we haven’t met face to face. However, I wouldn’t be sitting here in Sweden full of expectations, excitement, and happiness waiting to meet you if it wasn’t for an inspiration of love. Yes, TGS will succeed. What comes from pure love, has to be successful. I can’t think of a more pure form of love than that of a mother towards her child. Alex, this is a gift for...

Greetings TGS, Long time reader, first time blogger here. Some of you may have noticed that I can be a little patriotic... My friends in Abu Dhabi used to joke that New Zealand has "small country" syndrome because it is always determined to be the best. I think like the Canadians, we are determined not to be seen as the same as our more populated neighbours. With that in mind...
