  • People from around the world come to see just this event alone. Hundreds, even thousands of people travel the globe just to see the Ephrata Cloister, and many of them don't even get to see this single, magnificent event! This is most definitely an event you should see before you get old. I was born...

  • A few years ago, my dad and I finally got the opportunity to take the vacation we had always wanted to take: to drive across the country.

  • Devastation and destruction blew its way into the heart of the “Cresent City” late August of 2005, as Hurricane Katrina made her way into New Orleans.

  • A foreign place is not something one can simply imagine or feel through a book or movie.  In order to grasp the true meaning of "foreign," one must experience it first hand.  During the second semester of my sophomore year, I had the privilege of doing just that.  The Democratic Republic of Congo...

  • At the wee hour of four o’clock in the morning my family and I are headed over to my grandparents’ house to embark on our lovely family vacation. Look out Panama City…my family is on the way. Grandpa’s fear of flying meant a long drive from Louisville to the beach. It was a decent, crowded drive...
