    • 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...
    • The Flowers of Moher

    • Academic Programs International (API)
    • My time walking up and down the Cliffs of Moher humbled me. To be in the presence of something so obviously amazing by its grandeur and beauty was such a profound moment. As I tried to drink in as much of the view as I humanly could, I began to...
    • 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 Earth's Perspective

    • Creation Care Study Program (CCSP)
    • During a forest hike around Lake Matheson on New Zealand's west coast, I stopped as I noticed a small blue mushroom near my feet. While seemingly small and insignificant from above, I bent down to discover an incredible new perspective. As nature...
    • Little Treasures

    • Creation Care Study Program (CCSP)
    • We spent a week at Glover’s Atoll for our marine ecology class. More than once I’d stop in my tracks, look down at the hermit crabs scampering over the white sand, look up at the abundance of coconuts dangling from the palm trees, look around at...
    • The Praying Mantis

    • Cultural Diversity in Health Care
    • There are thousands of islands on Lake Victoria. We traveled in a small hole-filled boat to an island of Lake Victoria to visit an unreached people group. We paired up with a missionary using the Jesus Film Ministry in the language of these...
    • Mombasa Bubbles

    • Daystar University
    • Walking along the coast of the Indian Ocean in Mombasa, men come at you from every direction asking “Snorkel?” “Scuba?” “Ride my boat?” or “Want to buy a hand carved key chain?” Many will grab your attention by shouting “Mzungu! Mzungu!” “White...
    • Bullet Ant

    • Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands
    • The infamous bullet ant is over an inch long and so named for the fearsome quality of its sting; supposedly the sting feels similar to being shot with a bullet. When stung, the victim may lose vision, consciousness, and be in consuming pain for...
    • Scare Tactics

    • Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands
    • I was out walking on my way to lunch when a station construction worker in front of me startled this snake. The worker looked back over his shoulder and motioned me over. He then proceeded to taunt the snake by waving his hands in different...
    • Bienvenidos

    • Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands
    • We are just pulling into our last port in ferrying into the Galapagos Islands, and we were given a taste of the old world. A couple of sea lions made use of an old fishing boat that was anchored. It was an uncanny symbol of the slow, deliberate,...
    • Stare Down

    • Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands
    • The Sally Light-foot Crabs cruising the beaches and lava rocks in the Galapagos Islands were beautiful to watch. They start out black when they are young but change to have a brilliant red and blue coloration when they become mature and toxic to...
    • Amazonian Mushrooms

    • Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands
    • One thing I learned during our hikes through the Amazon rainforest is that everything in the rainforest fights to optimize its chances for survival. These delicate mushrooms may have been easily overlooked, but they exemplify this principle well. ...
    • 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...
    • Day Breaking on an Honored Tradition

    • Guatemala Term
    • After a 3 a.m. wake up call and a morning full of experiencing the honored Easter traditions in Antigua, I noticed this man walking towards us just as the sun was starting to rise. We had seen many Guatemalan men dressed like him throughout the...

    • Small Sky - A Kid With a Dream

    • History of Science in Europe
    • During our trip, we had one day to spend in Switzerland. Our whole group was beyond excited to be able to stare at the Alps for a whole day. Arriving at night only fueled our anticipation; but much to our disappointment, we woke up to a snow storm,...
    • Bridge Over Empty River

    • International Partnership for Service Learning and Leadership (IPSL)

    • A Silhouette

    • International Studies Abroad (ISA)
    • This picture represents one of the greatest experiences I believe I'll ever have. Three days and two nights we spent away from a crowded and foreign environment to be surrounded only by the calm quiet of the Sahara. We took a long camel ride over...
