Quite a few people refer to this town as a tourist town because throughout the year, people from all over the country and all over the world flock here to...

    Brain Confusion Being fully immersed in a language that is unknown to one’s mind sounds a lot easier than it is. As I spent a whole summer in Germany, I was terrified by how difficult it was to listen to a foreign language 24/7. The experience was perhaps the most confusing and incredible...

                In my family, a relaxing vacation is a ridiculous idea.  My dad has always been an restless spirit, valuing experiences more than things.  As a result, my family does not drive fancy cars or live in a huge house, but I am far more traveled and have a much better grasp of geography and...

    Visiting Alaska seemed like an expedition to the North Pole, so I was relieved that we were ‘cruising there.’ Surprisingly, there was no need to stay warm below deck because so much sunshine came through the portholes. I closed my eyes and I felt the warmth of the sun. I opened them and saw...

    It was Beijing and nearly Christmas. I remember because my body was numb all over with the cold as I desperately searched for some place warm. People walking down the street hardly seemed to mind with their light jackets. But they were used to it, I suppose. It was the people, the real Beijing that...

    Preserved among 11th century churches and lush landscaping, is the opportunity to experience a refreshing perspective on life, where scholars say life began: the ancient villages of Armenia.  It was where I learned that anything of value is that which never runs out when it is shared.  Serving as...

    Several Christmases ago my family and I took a trip down to Florida to visit my Grandma Betty and Grandpa Steve. On the way down my Mom managed to convince my Dad to take a side trip to Washington DC for educational purposes. Unfortunately for us this just happened to be around four thirty, right...

     It was dusk when we arrived at the Nürnberg airport so we went straight to the Ritter St. Georg Gästehaus in Erlangen, Germany. In the morning I was greeted with a cheery “guten morgen” and a steamy loaf of fresh baked bread and a selection of meats and cheeses fit for a king. For some reason I...

     "Chiquitones!"  my little aunt screams at twenty year old boys with tight shirts and nice trucks. We are at Huatabampito, Sonora, and the only reason people come down here is to have a good time, and they mean it.  On days like this one it seems like the whole city, maybe the whole world, is...

    I think my mom was a little worried when I left Norway to go to Jordan for a week. She knew that I would visit a conference for three days and then live with my friend Hashem’s family for five more days, but I do understand her worry. What us Norwegians know about the Middle East we either learn...
