      I have traveled internationally quite often over my life, but one of the most educational and emotional trips I’ve taken was to Germany a couple years ago. I went with a group from my church. Every day we visited historic churches and walked around different towns. Our main focus was to see and...

  • When you built your sandcastles out on a beach using those multi-colored molds, or when you built castles and castle walls out of Legos did you ever stop and think, "Do castles even actually look like this?" Now you know your answer. This medieval structure was built hundreds of years ago

    The imagination of a child can go to great extremes. I always imagined myself exploring castles and going out on adventures while riding on a unicorn, going through streets filled with everything I loved and could imagine.

    This summer I went on a trip to Europe that was the best experience of my life. I visited and explored Scotland, Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland, Wales, and England. Along the way I made life long friends and met amazing people. I will admit, that before going on this trip I was a little...

    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...

  • I never expected Iceland to be so beautiful. It almost felt alien, in fact, with endless plains of gray rocks with a dusting of green moss extending far into the distance. A perpetually gray sky loomed overhead, starkly contrasting to the usually blue skies of my Colorado home. I could scarcely...

    Being a traveler is life changing. Getting to know the people of the world is an experience more magnificent than any tower, castle, or painting. In June of 2012, my family got to experience the true experience of travelling. My 15-year-old sister, my parents, and I had been to some amazing...
