  • Nigeria, Africa, the motherland. Although I was born in America, my family is from Nigeria. I haven’t been to Nigeria since I was 6 years old, but I remember almost everything about my culture. Nigeria is located on the west Coast of Africa. It’s very humid and has high temperature because it’s...

  • When I heard 'road trip' come out of my mother's mouth, I froze, knowing that those particular words would become a synonym for the word 'disaster' in my own personal dictionary. It was last minute and totally spontaneous. We gathered some snacks, filled the ice chest and after about a fifteen...

  • In July 2009 my mom and I traveled to Oaxaca, Mexico to attend a Spanish Language Institute. We were traveling with a fun group and I have so many photos of our experiences (see http://www.edweb.csus.edu/bmed/mexico/).

My family and I waited, taking our time to drink in the different sights of Switzerland. The lilting tones of Schweizerdeutsch were like a beautiful...

Katherine and I went to meet Nicolette for a tour of the Hospital. Nicolette is the wife of the International Director of the program.  She works in the...

  • I wanted a fresh start. I wanted to go somewhere where nobody knew my name, my history, anything. Well, not quite. What I really wanted was to go back to Clara Dunn and see all my friends who have a cleaner past than I do. Driving with my Dad to Brighten Creek for a youth camp for Baha'i's was...

  • Through the international travel foundation, EF Tours, I visited Italy this past summer for 12 days with my family and a group of over 30 from places such as North Carolina, New Jersey, and Michigan.  Considering we had only 12 days to travel over 10 cities in Italy, there was never a dull moment...

  • During Thanksgiving Break of the 2007 school year, my parents decided to make a family vacation to Cancun. Traveling overseas brought excitement for every corner of our home, we were wildly packing...and yes, I mean “wildly,” we were animals (to say at the least) and we all couldn't hold back our...

  • Thrown in last minute with only a strong desire to discover and to serve, no  traveler's guide for dummies could prepare me for the journey I was about to venture.  My preconception of China was primarily composed of Communist police, the Great Wall, and Jackie Chan.  Yet, I knew I had to go; it...
