  • Surrounded by former strangers and subsequent best friends, I braved the seas on a metal bird named Lufthansa.

  • I adore any time spent with my family, especially when we are immersed in the culture of another region when on a family vacation. Despite my love for these family trips, perhaps my most anticipated trip comes every summer and is taken with my church family to a Centrifuge camp. My 8th grade...

  • The colorful houses were like a messy box of paints, the sky like watercolors on a soggy canvas, the streets like crumpled paper, with anti-geometric cobblestones. San Miguel was an art studio.Under the threatening clouds, we journeyed toward our home for the week, Antonette’s Hotel/Spa. The owner...
