  •  “Whoosh!” The bright multi-colored water pillar shot up into the air to signal the beginning of Disneyland’s World of Color.

As long and claustrophobic as these plane rides are, I would not trade my trips to the Philippines for anything. From them I have gained an appreciation...

  •   Day 1: As soon as my team members and I had unpacked in our dorm at the University of Maryland College Park, where all the Odyssey of the Mind World Finals competitors were staying, we set off to explore. The cool thing about OM is that it's a huge international competition. On the campus...
