    My father's family can mostly all be found right where he left them, on the island of Sardegna. Sardegna belongs to Italy and is located smack-dab in the middle of the Medditerrainian Sea. Every other year of my life, my mom, dad, sister, and I have been flying out there, seeing the sights,...

    The old cliche “the joy is in the journey” is taken literally in the Smoky Mountains.  The real attractions there do not rest in Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge; they do not reside in Ripley’s Believe-It-or-Not or the Dixie Stampede.  True, my family attempted to find happiness in those places in the...

    This was it! I was leaving everything I understood to travel to a place about which I knew very little. And so, as I glanced back at my family one last time, waving goodbye, my adventure began. 73 hours, 2 layovers, an AFS exchange student orientation, and 3 bus rides later; I arrived at the place...

          In July of 2011, my family decided to travel south to the Dominican Republic for the summer. I was the only member who did not want to go since I wanted to go to Italy instead.  However, I was overruled and forced to go on this “family bonding trip.” After we landed in the Dominican...

    As I boarded the plane I took one last look at my family waving goodbye to me. I looked to my left at my friends and they smiled at me. This was the first time I was going to be away from my family for an extended time and I thanked the heavens that I was going to have some company. We turned...

    My journey started in April. My Young Life leader at announced that there was a chance to go to Frontier Ranch in for our summer camp. Once I heard about the trip, it was a done deal. I was going and I was lucky to go with 8 of my good friends and three leaders. My leader talked to us on how we to...
