Sommer and Lindsey in Romania

Sommer and Lindsey are traveling to Romania for two weeks in summer 2009 to report on the status of orphanages, 20 years after the fall of communist dictator Nicolae Ceausescu. Their project is partially funded by a Meadows Exploration Award. Sommer ’08 graduated in December with degrees in journalism from Meadows School of the Arts and history from Dedman College of Humanities and Sciences. Lindsey is a senior marketing major in Cox School of Business and a photojournalist.

We’re rockin’ and rollin’

An update from Lindsey on their new site Romania Revisited:

Yes, we ARE alive! No, we haven’t forgotten about our trip or this blog! We’ve just had a lot going on in life lately.

In the past two months, Sommer traveled to London and New York to check out grad schools. I’m proud to announce that she’s going to Columbia next fall for journalism. What a stud! I’m now obligated to visit NYC next year. (What a shame!) I graduated in May and started working for the Allen Americans, the newest CHL team, as Director of Media Relations and Marketing.

Even though we’ve had all that going on, we’ve been working on our trip – just quietly.

We bought our plane tickets and we’re finalizing our travel plans. As Sommer said excitedly, “We’re going to Romania…again.” Haha, yes, we are going. And for those who were with us for our postponement experience, we learned our lesson and bought the travel insurance. We’re hoping we don’t have to use it though!

We’ve made some changes to our original plans and we’re planning on going to Bucharest, Timisoara and Targu Mures in Romania now. We’ll share more details later (only to ensure you keep coming back).

On another note, we got a shout-out in SMU Magazine from President Turner. Thanks for the publicity, RGT.

We’ll be in touch, Internet peeps.
