  • The water droplets weren't the only things that were surprised when they fell off the curvaceous green leaves and into my face. I was too. The last place I expected to find myself was in the middle of a jungle where the trees were so dense that it felt like they were on a mission to strangle...

  • This summer my family and I went to Europe. My family loves to travel, and as a result I have been to thirty-two states. Going to Europe though was a completely different experience.
