  •              Al-Afadra is a small village in upper Egypt where I first saw dirt roads, a part-time medical clinic, an optional grammar school, and houses built of mud bricks with palm leaf roofs. Several years later, I was told to create a school project that was meaningful to me, whether it...

  •                 The day I became a tourist attraction started out with tunnel safety lights flying past as we rode the Bart into San Francisco. Riding a clunky but reliable cable car, we descended down Mason Street and hopped off at the GoCar garage. After signing the requisite safety contracts, we...

  •     One of my most memorable and personal travel experiences was this past summer when my youth group from church and I went on a mission trip to Nashville, Tennessee from July 2009. While we were there we did a lot of things we wouldn’t normally do in our day-to-day lives. We stepped out of our...
