  • As the summer of 2005 came to an end, my family of five was about to embark on our annual camping trip to Oregon's Crater Lake National Park, near Medford, Oregon. For those who have not had the opportunity to visit the park, Crater Lake is an enormous lake that was formed ages ago by the volcanic...

  • In seventeen years I haven’t been very far from my small hometown in Eastern Pennsylvania. Even now, the farthest I’ve ever been from home is Orlando Florida. However, even trips close to home have taught me many lessons including the value and meaning of service, and dedication to the things you...

  • July 13, 2010 and my trip begins. I awake at 2:00 a.m. for the road trip of a lifetime. My family and I hit the road for Raleigh, N.C. where I will meet up with my USA team for 3 days of intense training before flying over to Sweden. The early morning hours do not let me see much of the countryside...

It was a tiny carriage hooked on to a motorcycle, but it still got us from point A to point B with no need to lean over to find a window to peek out of.

  • This past Spring Break, ranging from 4/3/10 to 4/10/10, I had the pleasure of visiting Panama City Beach with five of my closest friends. We stayed on a beautiful resort equipped with three pools, an extravagant view of both the strip and the beach, and many other “eye candies”, which will remain...

  • 3/1/12 7:55 p.m. After no sleep for about 34 hours straight it is finally time for bed. Maybe I’m in a sleep-deprivation haze, but the experience thus far has been unreal. I cannot believe that I am really here in Denmark with twenty-seven classmates on the Denmark-US Exchange. Nete (...
