  • Over and over again, I found myself wondering if this vacation would be like the last one or the one before -- the same mounting anticipation, the rush of jet-setting to a different country, and then being slightly crestfallen when I finally arrived. It's not that I didn't enjoy these past...

  • Pack your bags and off we go. In America we have so many opportunities to travel. Without leaving our country's borders, we can discover different cultures, visit different communities, and see how other people live.

  • At the time when I signed up to travel to El Salvador with my youth group I did not know how life changing it was going to be. I had everything going for me, a nice boyfriend, my mom was coming home from phlebotomy school, and I thought, why not do something fun? My youth pastor was very...

  • I always dreamt of going to another country and doing something to help people, let alone children. The dreaming ended when it finally came true in July of 2009. Before I knew it, I was packing my bags and ready to meet up with my team. It was my first time at an airport and on a plane as well....

  • “You never know what you have until it’s gone”. I have repeatedly heard this from peers, teachers and other adults in my life. I understand the meaning but I never thought I would see people go through an event in which that quote would gain metaphorical weight. Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans...
