  •             Where is home? Well I've always said that home is where you make it, but Versailles, Indiana is the place I was raised at and it is where I continue to live.

  •            As the last minute rolled over into the four am hour I was awoken by the repetitive sounds of my normal alarm.

I owned coffee table books detailing the architecture of Brooklyn, the entire MoMA collection, and every quietly iconic inch of Central Park.  I was...

  • The picture I have chosen to write about is the sight of Sabrika Hill in Spain. My family and I traveled to Spain and actually lived there for about two years. I chose this particular picture because it shows the true beauty and natural peace that Spain offers. We visited this sight one weekend...

  • Last summer in Spain though Indiana University’s foreign exchange student program, I discovered how much home meant to me. I realize now how naive I was as my plane left Chicago’s airspace headed for Europe. I thought a summer abroad would be a pleasant break from the hum-drum tedium of daily...

  • To all my travel aficionados: Today is not another account of my exotic excursions.  Today’s blog entry is about my own backyard.  This story begins with a visit from an old friend of mine.  She came to town with her parents who had business in Washington D.C., which is connected by the 14th...
