** In Collaboration** Whether you’re planning on a solo travel trip or a large group outing this year, you might already have some concerns about the medical implications of travelling to certain countries. For instance, if you’re travelling to a country such as South Africa, then you might be worried about contracting a condition such as malaria. It is a […]
Only two weeks after returning from my month voyage around Europe, I repacked my suitcase (with a lot less jumpers this time), and left for the next adventure. This time my good friend (and fellow conservation psychology PhD student) and I flew to Tropical North Queensland, to explore and to get our PADI scuba diving license.

It is growing and changing, and I am excited that dr.ofwhat now also includes the Fin-Blog segment. […]

Most places I travel to remind me of other places I’ve been, or places I’ve virtually been to (seen in movies or on TV). But Iceland is like no place I’ve ever been before. […]

I knew that it was known as the “Venice of the North” because of all the water, I knew that it was supposed to be stylish, and I knew it was supposed to be full of attractive people. All of which turned out […]
