  • In July 2010, my family and I embarked on Trafalgar’s European Traveller tour encompassing four countries: England, France, Switzerland, and Italy. This tour exceeded my wildest expectations. In addition to visiting the promised tourist attractions in each country, my family made the time to mingle...

  • Being in Ghana, Africa was one of the best experiences I'm sure I'll ever have. I have always felt drawn to the more remote areas of Africa and when my friend invited me to go with her and her church on a missions trip to Bolgatonga, Ghana, I jumped at the chance. Before I knew it, I was on a...

  • My trip to Costa Rica with Common Ground International was the most amazing experience of my life. First, we visited Parque Nacional de Manuel Antonio, the national park of Costa Rica.

  •       Imagine a community of people so close knit that every new comer instantly becomes family. Envision a place where a smile isn’t known as a friendly gesture, but a subconscious requirement. Turn your attention to a land filled with Cajun style afternoons and blissful jazz themed evenings...

  • As I start to open the door, bang! I end up hitting another door. I thought to myself “what has she gotten us into?” Two adults, two teenagers, and a dog cramped in a small motel room for the weekend. This is how my trip to Tahoe started, pretty good so far right? Ha, not really! My family and...

  • June 13th, 2011 Finally! The group is off and ready to embark on our long-anticipated Explorica tour around Europe! My three best friends and the rest of our thirty-person group can’t wait to hit the cultural hotspots of London, France, Switzerland, and Italy. With our cameras charged, we’re...

  • During the summer of 2009 a group of students and I participated in a People to People International adventure that would change my life forever. People to People is an organization started by our 34th President, Dwight D. Eisenhower; its mission is to promote peace through understanding,...
