  • /*-->*/ Blame my parents. My Amazon fascination started when I was young, with Animal Planet and Discover Channel. My favorites were Steve Irwin and Jeff Corwin- I loved watching them trek to the wildest places on earth, and it inspired me to travel myself. For me, the must-see...

  • After 27 hours on an airplane, bus, car, and feet we arrived in the low valleys of Lunahuana, Peru. We were eighteen teenagers meeting for the first time, embarking on a journey that would open our change our lives. The first night was full of awkward silence, mostly due to utter exhaustion. At...

  • On Spring Break in the year 2009 my family and I took a vacation down to Grand Cayman to escape the frigid spring weather in Bozeman, Montana. This was our second visit to the island in the time span of two years. I guess we just couldn’t get enough of the crystal clear Caribbean Sea or the...
