After arriving in Washington not so long ago it felt like the end was not even in sight. A fast paced two months later I found myself sitting at a bus stop about to depart for New York City with all my possessions in 75L backpack and stacks of great memories fresh in my mind.
As a student, the Winter Work Travel program that Chilli Adventures offers has been a great way to experience the USA. Flights, accommodation, visas, and job placement all secured through one program, allowing you the freedom to focus on the good times.
For two months I have had it all; a fully furnished apartment in ...

Christmas has come and gone and one wishes that the rush would die down. People in Washington seem to be in a constant holiday rush that is characterised by an ‘I want it all, and I want it now’ buzz.Back in South Africa we usually spend boxing day lounging around the house enjoying left over Christmas ham but I guess over here people are more concerned about Boxing Day savings specials and return policies on recently acquired gifts.

It has been a while since I have put my thoughts down in words. I have fallen in love with photography and videography; the 550D that STA Travel has generously supplied me with has been a major contributing factor. It is definitely time for a good old blog post.
I have had a rather eventful couple of weeks. There is a great variety of things to do in Washington D.C. The key is to do something new every day-off from work and most importantly meet the locals! As with any travel experience...

One seldom finds a city that is not fused with Eastern Culture in one way or another...D.C. is no different. The other night I caught the metro out to Chinatown to meet up with some new friends.

Chinatown is a visually pleasing experience that is characterised by beautiful archways, unique restaurants, a quaint night market and the out-of-place sound of a live country and western cover bands.

One of the real gems in D.C. is the National Harbor upon which the Gaylord National is situated. Its a great place to work and awesome to explore after hours...Especially when cruising in a V8 Mustang!
Take a look at the American muscle, bright lights, mythical creatures and the GIANT Christmas tree!

For the sake of brevity I will cut right to the chase, put the numbers down and let you imagine for yourself the time that is being had in the small city of Arlington just outside the nations capital, Washington D.C. Over one hundred South African students, sharing apartments in the same complex, working at the same hotel, at the same time...Its a recipe for...well you tell me?
After much hard work and preparation Chilli Adventures have successfully placed 120 South African students at the Gaylord National Hotel. The hours and stress involved with visa a...
