Many people travel around the world to see extraordinary landscapes, or to enjoy once-in-a-lifetime experiences only available in vastly expensive trips to foreign countries.

  • In April of 2010, I went with my school, Greater Atlanta Christian School, to Kenya, Africa for a mission trip. We partnered with 410 Bridge, an organization that takes groups over to villages in Africa.  We were lucky enough to meet the beautiful people of Ngammba. Traveling with a group of 40...

  • The bus swerved dangerously close to the edge of the cliff face, back fender hanging precariously as the driver cranked the wheel all the way around to accommodate the hairpin, break-neck speed of Ecuadorian drivers. Of course, being an Ecuadorian driver, he executed it perfectly, but to me,...
