Looking back (😏) at our trip to Norway and our posts about it, I don’t think we have accurately described just how amazing it was🙌 Norway, specifically Bergen, absolutely smashed our expectations for various reasons! Firstly, ever single local Norwegian (except one - an angry Ice Cream lady) were extremely welcoming and super kind and helpful❤️ Secondly, I know we’ve mentioned this but the country is just one big paradise full to the brim with naturally beauty - in, around and away from the towns and cities there are numerous areas of nature’s true wonders🏞 Finally, we would like to thank our hotel - the Clarion Hotel Bergen - for the outstanding rooms, warm hospitality, extremely friendly staff and delicious waffles😋 We recommend anyone thinking about traveling to Bergen or anywhere else in Norway to 100% do it and if you end up choosing to stay in Bergen (which we would recommend) then definitely stay at the Clarion Hotel Bergen - we simply could not ask anything else from them❤️ Thank you Norway for one of the best trips we have ever had - we have had the privilege of visiting 53 different countries so far in our lives and we can honestly say that Norway is one of the best🎉

Eins unserer #verbandscamp18 Highlights: Thomas Kunkel von Sea Watch erzählt von seinem letzten Einsatz in der zivilen Seenotrettung, von den tagtäglichen Folgen der Festung Europa für ganz viele Menschen, die nicht mehr lebend das Mittelmeer verlassen und welche Zustände in Lybien eigentlich herrschen. Der Vortrag ist super informativ, emotional und wir sind uns einig: die Festung Europa darf nicht bleiben! Zivile Seenotrettung darf nicht mehr weiter kriminalisiert werden! Wir werden kämpfen, dass Europa seinem humanitären Anruf gerecht wird und alle Menschen rettet, die in Seenot geraten. #zivileseenotrettung #seawatch #internationalesolidarität #buildbridgesnotwalls

As the summer is coming to a close, we know many students are going back to school. We really want to wish you luck and hope this school year is full of fun and growth.

We hope we will continue to see you guys (and your friends!) at all our YES meetings. We have an awesome year planned and can’t wait to see you guys next Thursday at our first YES meeting of the year!

Can you believe there are still walls ('peace walls') that seperate protestant and catholic residential areas? With gates closed on Sundays and being opened again Monday morning. 😳 Some eye-opening insights on our black cab tour in Belfast..

Lo told us at a Go-Go show - you can’t get more D.C. than that - tonight: “This world feels so unstable. It’s so weird right now. We just got to be aware. And it all feels so heavy sometime. Strange that I feel like I can breath better here, with all these strangers, underground.”

Our words are more powerful than we know. Use them with love and care 💖🤗✨ #love #bekind

#tbt to Rochester Pride. Love is love is love. 💗🌈💗 #prideparade #buildbridgesnotwalls #shirtsareoverrated #representingSFPwhereverilive

"A smile is a bridge from one soul to another" 😅👌

BRIDGES OF LIFE -:-:-:-
🔅… The bridge is not just about getting back and forth from one side to another...it is about connecting...🔅
Always there seems to be a bridge to cross.
No matter where we are in life
how far we think we have come
or have yet to go...
decisions to be made,
Should we span the bridge
and cross over to the other side,
or do we just jump off ??
and hope we land on our feet.....!!!

Teaching English to immigrants doesn’t pay me a penny, but it truly fills me with all the riches in the world. The goal is to build bridges, not walls. Culture makes people understand each other better. And if they understand each other better in their soul, it is easier to overcome the economic and political barriers. Give me about 2-3 years; you’ll see me in Thailand, Germany, Japan, and every other country teaching English and breaking barriers. This is my PASSION, and giving back is the greatest thing I can do ❤️ #GiveBack #Volunteer #TEFL #ESL #Teach #GoingGlobal #Culture #BuildBridgesNotWalls

View from Kapellbrücke, or Chapel Bridge, THE oldest wooden covered bridge in Europe.
It’s home to paintings that date back to the 17th century. It’s been partly reconstructed after almost burning down in 1993 (my birth year). #buildbridgesnotwalls
