    Among the clutter of orange warning flags beckoning visitors to beaches on Kauai stands a white and blue sign. It warns visitors not to touch, interact with, or even come within a hundred feet of a Hawaiian monk seal. Most beachgoers dismiss the sign as yet another warning that is clearly...

    I couldn't believe my eyes. My school was going hosting a trip through EF Tours to Italy and Greece! What an incredible oppurtunity, "Too bad my parents would never let me go". Or so I thought.

The gates (only a block from our hotel) open unto a rainforest. We saw monkeys, sloths, snakes, birds and more. ...

         When our team leader told us our first mission work experience was going to be a visit to Pasitos de Jesus girls orphanage; I remained trapped in my timid and overly cautious state of mind regarding interactions with the native people. We arrived to a shelter that was smaller than most of our...

      “HE LOOKS LIKE A SQURRIEL!” my sister yells in between fits of hysterical laughter. I had to agree with that statement; here I was with my mom and sister in a closet sized compartment on the TGV train departing for Paris. Some how all three of us fit against the window to look down at my dad,...
