    • Gyros!

    • Greece and Turkey Study Tour

    • 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...
    • 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...
    • My Reality

    • American Institute for Foreign Study (AIFS)

    • 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...
    • ZigZag's Treasure

    • American Institute for Foreign Study (AIFS)
    • Sitting at our backpackers resort, the local artist named ZigZag asked us if we wanted to see real African wildlife. Of course we replied ""yes"" and we walked with him over a mile only to stop at what seemed a random spot in the road. While we...

    • The Camel Caravan

    • Upper Midwest Association for Intercultural Education (UMAIE)

    • 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...
    • 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...
    • 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...
    • Shore Reflection

    • England Term
    • The solitude expressed in this print of Kana Sterr looking out to the island of Arran in the North Channel is representative of our pensive mood that afternoon on the beach in Ayr, Scotland. We had only been abroad for one week, which was spent...
    • Strolling in Florence

    • Europe Term Intercultural Communication in Austria, Czech Republic, and France
    • While on our free travel week, a few of us decided to see some of the famous cities in Italy. We concluded the free travel week in Florence, which was the perfect city to end our free travel. It had a "smaller town" feel, when compared to Rome,...
    • 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...
    • Fitting In

    • Issues and Praxis in Christian Social Justice
    • At any given moment traveling in Phnom Penh, one was bound to see many motos (likened to a small motorcycle), which was the most common form of transportation. It was also common to see a whole family squished onto the single seat of the moto....
    • Sunset in Segovia

    • Spain Term
    • I took this photo during one of my last nights in Segovia. It captures perfectly the city's medieval atmosphere and the beauty of the surrounding countryside. Segovia's famous gothic cathedral and centuries-old castle dominate the skyline, and...
    • 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...
    • 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...
