    It’s late afternoon, Saigon. Traffic has eased up a little, but the signature tropical humidity is still unbearably heavy. My mom and I are across the street from our hotel, taking pictures at Ho Con Rua, a circular, concrete area where young couples escape for an afternoon rendezvous. Translated,...

      “How much longer are we going to be stuck on this stupid plane?”             Those are the words that I remember as the beginning to my Italian adventure. Our advisors did not bargain for the consequences they would face for sticking twenty teenagers on a twelve hour plane ride, even if EFT Tours...

    I shifted in the metal folding chair, picking at the threads of my shirt. Nervous, I glanced at my host family, who surrounded me in a semi-circle. Thirty eyes stared expectantly back at me. Intimidated, I lowered my eyes back to my hands, which had now unraveled the thread.               I was...

      Travelling is something I dream of doing, but haven’t done a lot. Living in Florida though gives me close access to some great beaches and the world’s best theme parks. Hello, Orlando! While this summer I have spent many hours beach bound or off to see Mickey, I recently took a trip that has...

    Just above the horizon you can see the spike point of the new York city tower. This tower is none other than the Empire State building. This Famous Sky scraper is a magician of its own.

    The Rocky Mountains surrounded me as sentinels. Their grasp was a difficult thing to escape, stretching so far up and out. But escape I did, to a land that, being from a town sheltered in the mountains of Montana, I could hardly have imagined. In the spring of 2012, I travelled forth to a land...

Meanwhile, the blistering sun beat down upon my shoulders while around me wild animals approached ever closer. In the distance, twin volcanoes broke the horizon, preeminent in the...
