    • Foot prints in the sand

    •  
    • As our group was walking up the sand dunes in United Arab Emirates, I was so impressed with how perfect the ripples in the sand looked going on forever, but we stepped across it like we stepped into the culture. I stepped into a 100% Muslim...
    • Solitude

    •  
    • This photo was taken on the senior nursing trip to the United Arab Emirates in the Middle East. One of our many adventures involved taking a morning trip to a wadi, or dry riverbed. We crossed the boarder into Oman and descended down the rocks...
    • Midnight in Paris

    •  
    • It was Thanksgiving night after a wonderful dinner at the American church in Paris. I rushed to the Eiffel tower before it closed and decided to go all the way to the top that evening. Upon leaving, we walked through the park that surrounds the...

    • Experiencing Culture and Education in Hong Kong and Manila

    • Australia Term

    • Independent Travel
