  • Of all things, I am happiest to have inherited my father's 'travel gene'. His tales of traversing the European continent with his own father instilled in me a powerful wanderlust, an ache, a passion, a need to connect with the historic cities, like Rome and Paris, that my father encountered, as...

  • In June of 2009, my family and I once again took the long drive over to Ballwin, Missouri, to see my aunt and uncle. Our plans were to go shopping, hang out, and then go to the lake. So that just what we did, we spent the first couple days shopping and spending all of our money. Then it was time to...

All the students who went to Costa Rica were encouraged to keep a...

  • I am able to reluctantly admit that my memory is, in the simplest of terms- not top notch. While some will occasionally walk into a room and suddenly forget they are there in the first place, I seem to do such a thing on a daily basis. My family likes to say that I don't fully focus on what's...

  • The story of this vacation started as the plane wheels left the runway, but the journey to Oregon truly began the moment Mt. Hood decorated the plane windows with snow-covered mountaintops. Here there are wonders that tower far above the reign of skyscrapers; here the pulse of the ocean out-roars...
