    • Shining with the Setting Sun

    • Japan Travel Writing
    • After hiking for most of the day and still having a ways to go before my friends and I could rest we stumbled upon a shrine tucked away in the mountains. Low on motivation and beginning to regret our decision to go hiking on one of the few free...
    • 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....
    • 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...
    • 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...
    • 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....
    • Fishermen Houses

    • Middle East Studies Program (MESP)
    • I traveled to Italy after my program in Egypt ended. Every year tourists flock out of Venice to the tiny Islands of Burano to buy fine lace and wander the streets of Kodacolor dreams. Tradition has it that fishermen started painting their houses...
    • My Reality

    • American Institute for Foreign Study (AIFS)
    • I was blessed to have an amazing apartment that overlooked the skyline of Florence. The Ponte Vecchio was right beneath my window, and living in such a historical place made me realize the beauty in architecture that has lasted beyond 50 years. ...
    • Strangers with Different Destinations

    • University of La Verne
    • I was on a train traveling between the main center of Athens and one of its suburbs. In order to get to the university, I took an hour-long trip, twice a day, four days a week. Each time I encountered new strangers with different destinations. Some...
    • Little Girl on Top of a Fountain

    • Latin American Studies Program (LASP)
    • I was walking in Plaza Cultura with friends in the evening. We noticed a crowd watching South American musicians. At the edge of the crowd was this beautiful fountain with a little girl on top. The only way she could have gotten there was by an...
    • 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...
    • Morning Devotions

    • Painting Dominican Landscape
    • In the Amphitheater at Altos de Chavon in the Dominican Republic, we had our personal morning devotions. I thought this was an interesting view of this huge amphitheater. It was so big, but sitting there you could hear a pin drop as if a microphone...
    • 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...
    • 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...
    • 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...
    • Feed the Birds

    • Spain Term
    • San Marco’s Square is infested with pigeons. Everywhere you step, you run the risk of being squawked at. And the, instead of shooing them away, you pay € 1 for birdfeed and invite them to climb all over you! Betsy (pictured) and I could have fed...
    • Quintessential England

    • England Term
    • Sheep are a ubiquitous characteristic of the United Kingdom’s countryside and have been for centuries. I find their helplessness and simplicity endearing and, though today, their importance in British economy and culture is lessened, I could not...
    • Window of Despair

    • Upper Midwest Association for Intercultural Education (UMAIE)
    • The Day we visited Majdanek was very dreary and rainy. It was the type of weather that chilled you to the bone. This picture was taken in the corridor right outside the gas chambers where Zycolne B was used to kill an estimated 3,000 people. The...
    • 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...
    • A Need for Tranquility

    • Middle East Studies Program (MESP)
    • The Sahara offered a sort of peace that could not found otherwise in Egypt. The shapes and curves of the dunes changed with the strong winds, so we stayed together to assure that no one would get lost. But Steve wanted to be lost, he wanted to...
