Viva la Cancún!

As the plane took off at 8:25 a.m. sharp on a Wednesday morning, my girlfriend and I were thrilled to begin our new adventure traveling together for the very first time. We felt slightly like newlyweds, jetting off together for...

Starry nights on sandy dunes

MOSCA, Co.– In the shadows of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains lie several massive sand dunes so beautifully shaped and perfectly formed that they appear airlifted from Saharan Africa. The Great Sand Dunes are located in Mosca,...

Finding family at Savior Children Foundation: My volunteer experience in Ghana

I’m sitting under the large, metal pavilion in a plastic chair alongside the kids. All of the other volunteers have left, so I’m alone — as I have been the past two days. Mr. Patrick sits at the front of the room, reading a story about Moses. The kids, ranging from 5 to 18 years, listen intently as I panic about the time that ticks by on my watch. 5:27 p.m., it reads.

I’ve often wished I could have that power, but never more so than when strolling the steep narrow streets of Portugal.

Experiencing ‘Dead Season’ in Northern Michigan

If you look up Good Old Books online, you’ll find that the Leland, Michigan, used and rare bookstore is only open from mid-May to mid-October. But if, on a cold winter afternoon, you walk up to a gray-blue, bi-level home with an “OLD, RARE BOOKS” sign posted in the yard, you’ll find a note signed by George and Mary Ball.

Setting sights on Boston (again)

The first time I visited Boston, I was dead-set on attending Northeastern University, and the universe seemed to be telling me this was a good idea. It was August, a balmy 80 degrees, and my assigned tour guide was, objectively, the hottest one (I say “objectively” because our group somehow ended up three times as big as everyone else’s, and entirely female).
