    For months, my family had been planning a fantastic trip to Paris! This meant the world to me because I’ve never been outside the U.S. I counted down the days until our flight to Europe! I had a huge grin on my face the whole plane ride. After a long 9 hours, we arrived to the Promise Land! As soon...

  • Adventures Down Under 063

    Exploding out of a balloon onto my face.  Spewing out of the tap into my glass.  Rushing out of the showerhead onto my skin.  Arching high out of the fountain and meeting my parched lips.  On the windshield.  In the pool.  In a bottle. Water. Water. Water. But in South Australia, the driest...

    For those of you who have forgotten what high schools like, or just remember the drama and pushing and shoving, Hinkley High School is a great place to revisit and get your fill of high school activities and good memories! This school is home of the Thunder Birds and is a world class learning...

  • The Gap of Dunloe in Ireland

    While on my travels to the U.K with the People to People Student Ambassador Program I was most excited about going to Ireland. Not only because of how beautiful everything looks over there (my camera could not do justice to the rich and beautiful landscape) but because of my own personal ties to...

    The unthinkable happened. I got cold in Africa. It was my third week in the town of Kabala, Sierra Leone, Western Africa. I found myself hiding under the roof of the Sengbeh Guest House along with eight other Sierra Leonian kids from our work team. We had just returned from the worksite at the...

    A little over a year ago I had the amazing opportunity to go on a mission trip to Saltillo, Mexico with a large group from the Biloxi Catholic Diocese. I had heard quite a lot about the mission trips from previous years and had high expectations of what I thought would be a fun and carefree trip. I...

  • China

    My unexpectedly wonderful trip occurred my freshman year of high school; I had the privilege of traveling to China with my high school band and play during the opening of the Olympics thanks to Music Celebrations International. We arrived via United Airlines to a gray dreary day but an amazing city...

  • White Yarrow along the Trail at Temperance River_1

     Nearly every year that my family has lived in Minnesota, we have visited the North Shore of Lake Superior.  Each time we drive Minnesota Highway 61 up the North Shore, stop at our favorite spots, go somewhere new, and see how powerful the waterfalls are this time.  Our most recent vacation to...

    It was obvious the moment I walked out of the airport that I was nowhere near Texas. The relentless heat of Houston had been replaced by a cooler, more forgiving breeze and the aroma of newly fallen rain. This was to be my home for the next seven weeks. Luckily, Cambridge, Massachusetts was one of...
