  • "Nice hair color," was my first welcome into Japan. My first reaction to this small, bald man was to tell him he couldn't have my hair, but before I brought myself to reply to him, he looked at my uncle, pointed at me, and proclaimed, "big nose.'"

  •   During the summers of 2009, 2010, and 2011, I traveled to Mexico to visit my family and spend some time with the side of my family that I get to rarely see. I had great fun with my cousins that I rarely get to see and was able to explore the entire central region of the country. From the...

  • This summer, for some hard-core family time we planned a three-week trip to Australia! We have a pen pal family who live in the Blue Mountains outside of Sydney, New South Wales. They visited us in 2005 and helped us plan our Aussie trip, giving advice on what to do and see and how to get there. We...
