  • My sister and I made our way to the nearest underground station, walking swiftly past the plethora of shops lining Oxford Street as light, but steady rain fell. Taking the Jubilee Line from Bond Street, we deftly maneuvered the crowds of people streaming through the turnstile onto their...

  • 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...
