  • I adore any time spent with my family, especially when we are immersed in the culture of another region when on a family vacation.

  • “Good Lord I’m late!”,I screamed as I barreled down the hall. I looked up at the clock. I could feel it mocking me …”6:45a.m”, shamefully late as usual.

  • The feeling of having an orca whale's dorsal fin skim my arm sent a shock through my body and a shiver down my spine. Its fin then disappeared and it swam under our inflatable, rubber boat and re-appeared on the other side. This is an experience that you can only have in the Galapagos Islands and I...
