  • When my parents asked me whether I wanted a quinciñera for my birthday, I thought of crowded rooms and big gowns and quickly asked: “What if, instead of spending money on just another party you send me to Australia and New Zealand?” I explained to them that the trip was a part of a program called...

  • Each year, for our Christmas present, my family goes on an exotic vacation in place of a Christmas present. For those of you who are just now reading my blog, I’ve been gone for over two weeks on this year’s holiday, a cruise around Cape Horn. I’m writing this from the Ezeiza International Airport...

  • Every shopper glared at us. Brazenly loud English and periodic shrieks at the sight of trinkets couldn’t have concealed our foreignness. Many of us were seeing the night market in Taiwan for the first time. The florescent booths, jockeying vendors, and chaotic atmosphere, however, were all too...

  • Volkel, a small town in the province of Noord-Brabant in the Netherlands, where I have lived for two years, is probably not the first place that comes to mind when you imagine a European vacation.

  • The summer of 2011 to date, has been the most incredible summer of my life. Not because my family and I traveled to some upscale, fluffed up resort.
