(nearly) all the rest of the photos and thoughts about Patagonia/Antarctica


Imagine the most rickety roller coaster ever. Now give it some drugs and Froot Loops. Now take away all it's sense of direction and safety and suspension and brakes. Now I want you to imagine that the ride lasts 2.5... Continue Reading →

RinR: Water Polo, Gymnastics, Olympic Park, e mais


Months and months ago, when my smart friends were purchasing tickets for the Olympics, I was still wavering back and forth between spending a few extra weeks in the Bay with my family, or coming back to Rio to be... Continue Reading →

RinR: Olympic Fun – Fencing and Archery, because of course.


So it turns out I am super passionate about sports I have never played, don't understand, have never even seen before. I lost my MIND watching beach volleyball (and apparently many of you got to see that for yourselves on... Continue Reading →

RinR: Tchau for now.


Ah, that sweet 'end of the school year' exhaustion point we have hit as teachers, where I honestly can't remember what day it actually is, only¬†how many days until I'm on summer break. Where at any point after 2pm you... Continue Reading →

RinR: This Week’s Dream
