I had the privilege to visit my mom’s side of the family in Belgium and tour London in fifteen and a half days.

It is a base in Florida where scouting groups can go and you can chose from varying types of excursions. Our troop chose the Sea Explorer...

  • Travel Journal: CostaRica Edition   In my opinion, travelling is the best way to learn about the different cultures of the world.
