    Imagine being stranded in an island- without a comfortable and cozy bed to sleep in. While the rain soaks you up, your stomach growls, crying out for food. What’s the first thought that comes to your mind? Is it your grandma’s unique cooking or the warm hugs from your love ones? Well this special...

Seeing as how this was my first time outside the country, the only thing keeping me calm was my preparedness. I knew I should sleep on the flight, but my excitement...

      Bright colors, festive music, and delicious smells greet me as I step into the plaza. An old man in a serape leans down and speaks in Spanish to a young boy, who is showcasing his wooden handicrafts here in the shadow of a centuries-old cathedral.

    Expresso shots, butterfly kisses, and sticky hugs are what I found in the small village of Villa Clara, Cuba. Culture shock began seeping in quickly, as I walked down the dirt streets littered by garbage and stray dogs. I observed the countless beat up houses with their crooked wooden doors sitting...

    When the machete-wielding tiger-fighting farmer began growling, I looked up at Mom and Dad. "Are those the sounds tigers make?" "Yes Elliot, but I'm sure that we'll be fine." It was scary without the tiger-calls. Night already in the process of falling, we were in a jungle, in a third world country...

     My name is Demetrios Kiriopoulos. In case you haven’t already deciphered that I’m Greek by the name… I’m fully Greek.
