Bonderman Travel Fellowship

Nathan Christensen

History with College Honors


1999 Fellows

Travel Locations: Northern Europe, Russia, and China

Christensen, one of fifteen siblings in a blended family, grew up in small communities with little opportunity to travel. His educational experiences at the University of Washington created in Nathan a thirst to understand and experience other cultures with his own eyes and ears. He envisions a trip around the world by train, in part to travel slowly, and as well to encounter fellow passengers in a more prolonged setting. He will begin his rail excursion in Northern Europe, move through Russia, and then on to China.
