    My trip to Québec city and Montreal, in Canada, was a different kind of vacation that I have never experienced before. I went with my school's French club that I am a part of. My school is an economicological-structured facility. It means that we incorporate elements of ecology, economy, empathy...

  • My grandparents live in dusty, old photo albums. Like dreams I’ve never had, I see pictures of my grandmother holding my infant form and my grandfather sitting quietly on the sofa, holding his cane out in front of him.

    I have been craving the sweet taste of lambutants, the sticky, hot weather alternates with heavy rain, and, especially, I have been missing a piece of home. A month ago I came back from a family reunion in Bentre, Vietnam. Bentre is a small town with a sleepy waterfront lined with imposing,...

    Imagine a trip within the boundaries of your own country. I would imagine it could not be life changing; too different from the world I have come to know. However, when you step outside the lines of expectation and familiarity, yet still feel a sense of belonging, change is inevitable. It would be...
