    • Gyros!

    • Greece and Turkey Study Tour
    • After spending the morning at the Acropolis in Athens, we had the rest of the day to explore and eat on our own.  Fellow IFOTA trekker Eric Boal and I were in search for the perfect gyro hotspot, as that quickly became our meal of choice in Greece....
    • Outside the Noise

    • Arcadia University: Perugia, Italy
    • This photograph was taken in St. Peter's piazza in front of the Vatican. It is one of my favorites because it represents a quiet moment in a place so alive with sound. The day was filled with so many famous things to see in Rome with so much...
    • Bartering For Meat

    • The History of Science in Europe
    • On the streets of Florence is the Open Air Market. This is the place to buy local meats, bread, fruit, vegetables, spices and so much more. This served as a great place not only to buy lunch, but to practice our bartering as well. This picture...
    • An Unexpected Home

    • South Africa Term
    • On Boulders Beach in Cape Town, African penguins grace the sand and marvel their audience. To tourists they seem out of place next to the crashing waves, but to the penguins this is simply home.
    • Emerging Tides

    • LCC International University (LCC)
    • Lithuania is nestled up against the Baltic Sea, next to Russia, Latvia, and Belarus. Lithuania has recently emerged as an independent country, free from Soviet authority. While this political freedom is vitally important, there is still a lot of...
    • Marionettes

    • History of Science in Europe
    • Hand crafted wooden marionettes adorn the streets of Florence over the Ponte Vecchio bridge. Reminding me so much of the story of Pinocchio I later found that Florence was indeed the birth place of Pinocchio’s author Carlo Collodi. The story of...
    • Irony

    • Globalization in India
    • In India there are very few trash bins so this is one of them. This photo I feel exposes the irony behind the environmental movement that has taken place so far in India. It is very simple, but it captures the essence of a material society. All...
    • California Waves

    • Los Angeles Film Studies Center (LAFSC)
    • Exploring places outside of LA became a hobby of mine; I wanted to see everything that the Los Angeles area had to offer.  After driving up the PCH for a while, I came across El Matador beach.  It was a beautiful place to relax and just get away...
    • Assos

    • Greece and Turkey Study Tour
    • The harbor of Assos is a place Paul stopped on his missionary journeys. An image like this is one that only God could create. He literally took my breath away and I was speechless. This is proof to me that God exists. God's work in the isn't a...
    • Blue Agama Lizard

    • Middle East Studies Program (MESP)
    • As I reached the summit of an hour-long hike, I was rewarded by the sighting of an elusive Blue Agama Lizard. The stunning contrast lured me over to it as it sunned itself on the edge of a large cliff. I crept closer and closer until my lens was...
    • Exhaustion

    • School for International Training (SIT)
    • Exhaustion. This picture took place on a Greek subway after 3 intense days of touring in and around Athens. My fellow American students and I were very exhausted and took this brief moment to relax. Although traveling abroad is exciting and fun,...
    • Ngorongoro Crater

    • InterStudy
    • This picture was taken in the Ngorongoro Crater. This is in Tanzania right next to the Serengeti National Park, the northwest corner of the country. The Crater is an amazing natural zoo. These are two different breeds of flamingo and Egyption geese...
    • Kylemore Abbey

    • England Term
    • During March of 2000, the England Term group was escorted about Ireland by our faithful leader, DR (Professor Dan Ritchie), and our "charismatic" Irish bus driver, Harry. Our home base for several days was Galway, a small city on the western coast...
    • Humanity

    • International Institute on Political and Economic Studies (IIPES)
    • This past summer (July 2000), I attended the International Institute on Political and Economic Studies sponsored by the Fund for American Studies in cooperation with Georgetown University and the Greek Association for the Atlantic & European...
    • Campesino

    • Guatemala Term
    • I was walking in the village of Santa Maria de Jesus with Dr. Edgar Santos en route to a medical home visit. I looked downt he road and saw the campesino (farmer) leading two horses down the cobblestone street with the old church behind him and...
    • Light in the Catacomb

    • England Term
    • The light in this catacomb in Salzburg reminded me of Emily Dickenson's poem: 'There's a certain slant of light/ on winter afternoons/ That oppresses/ with the heft of cathedral tunes…' There was a quietness that made the place feel solemn and...
    • Mysterious Simplicity

    • University of Edinburgh
    • I still haven't decided whether the mood of this picture is more ominous or peaceful, so I'll leave that up to you, the viewer. A train station is one of those things that carries with it a sense of foreign-ness and adventure, when in reality, it's...
    • Homeless

    • Independent Missions Trip
    • These men are some of the many homeless that congregate around an area served by CCFM Christian Radio called Muisenberg, outside of Cape Town. Stricken with alcoholism and poverty, they sit in this same place, outside of a bar, everyday. Like so...
    • The Camel Caravan

    • Upper Midwest Association for Intercultural Education (UMAIE)
    • My UMAIE group had decided early in our trip that we wanted to take a camel safari while in Egypt.  We learned that the best place to do so would be not near Cairo, but in Luxor, a smaller city further south, where we would pass through rural...
    • Illumination

    • Greece and Turkey Study Tour
    • Late one afternoon our group visited St. Peter in Chains Basilica in Rome. I had spent a lot of time looking at the beautiful sculptures and frescoes in the church. I set my backpack down and knelt beside it to rest my sore shoulders and find a...
