    My days were filled with car horns beeping, cows mooing, chutney music blaring, and alluring scents of food. Standing on the veranda, I look straight and see the East Berbice-Corentyne River and the country of Suriname. I look to my left and see different sized cows roaming the streets; to my right...

        One of my most memorable and personal travel experiences was this past summer when my youth group from church and I went on a mission trip to Nashville, Tennessee from July 2009. While we were there we did a lot of things we wouldn’t normally do in our day-to-day lives. We stepped out of our...

    Medieval castles, winding river valleys, and literary poignant tours! Sound exciting? I had the privilege to visit my mom’s side of the family in Belgium and tour London in fifteen and a half days. Her parents are originally from the United States; however they are missionaries to Belgium. This...

    "WHAT?" I exclaimed. "Your grandparents are taking you to Italy with them this summer." Italy? Europe? 16 hour flight? "WHAT?" I repeated.

It cost $7,000 dollars just for me to go, but my whole family spent almost a year raising money for me to go. Two weeks before the deadline came...

          To travel means to go from one place to another, have fun on trips and tours, to see a change that will last a life time. I too have traveled, it was no ordinary journey, but a little something called a mission trip, only it was not as small as one may think, rather much more of an experience...

    Seven days -- not enough time to leave an impression on anyone, or I supposed. Lost in translation. I guess the phrase wouldn’t be an adequate way of describing it because I still speak the language. However the broken language barrier between me and my “birth place” still didn’t enable me to...

    Growing up my childhood was characterized by tales of my parents’ homeland of Lebanon. My bedtime stories when I was younger consisted of vivid accounts of the sparkling blue water one saw while walking across the “Mina” (Arabic for boardwalk), and the history that filled the air above the...
