    Ten hours, four sets of security, three new stamps in my passport, two take-offs, two movies, and two landings, the bi-annual family vacation to Lyd had begun. For most people the most eye opening part of a trip is the actual trip, the activities, people, events, but for me things changed with...

    “I have nothing besides this house,” Marie was telling us. She was right. Her use of house as a description for the shack in front of us was pushing the definition of the word. Rather, what belonged to this little lady named Marie was more four concrete walls holding up a series of barely...

Instead of beaches, hotels, passports and famous landmarks, I was taken down a much different path in...

(The wind chill is sometime -55 F), and is very flat. One of my hockey camp friends said, "If your dog runs away, you can...

    In the fall of last year instead of bundling up with sweaters and sheepskin boots I was stuffing my suitcases with swimsuits, sandals, and a myriad of sunscreen. Instead of worrying about exams or essays like my peers; I was packing for a school sponsored Bahamas escape. At the time I figured it...
