  • The first week in Italy, I lost my watch at (approximately) 12:47 pm. For someone always in control, I now felt powerless without it.  I had relied on its safe rigidity, but now I stood in the piazza, worried that I would be too late or too early for something truthfully not too important.  In the...

  • Traveling is not only a dream in my life but it is also my passion.  So when my parents told me that I would be going to Bangladesh over the summer I couldn’t wait.  This would be an adventure I would remember.  There were many questions that were going through my mind like what would I see and...

  • “So, this is what she saw.” My sister’s voice broke the awed silence as I tore my gaze away from the beautiful, sun-filled canyon.
