Interests: I am passionate about traveling, writing, and photography. So, putting all of them together into a blog just makes sense. I have traveled through 14 countries and counting. Hopefully, what I have learned and seen will educate, inspire, and entertain everyone who comes across my page.

Everyone we met welcomed our small group into their homes, invited us for dinner, wanted to share their life stories with me, and were overall very friendly. One evening, we went to dinner at this older lady's home.... Continue reading

One morning I found a station on a walkman. The DJ discussed the differences in the English accents. For each accent, someone would mimic each culture. For the Australian, they would say "good day mate." The British tended toward the proper speech. Then they portrayed the American English as: yo... Continue reading

One major difference between the United States and Uganda was the cuisine. In the United States, we can chose from a vast array of choices: Mexican, American, Chinese, Italian, Thai, etc. You may not realize how lucky you are until you are given very few choices.

The closest environment of poverty that I surrounded myself with was in Mexico; in Mexico, they had basic necessities. When I mean necessities, I am talking about: clothes, food, etc. Even...

As I wake up about a half hour before we land, I start to see the sun's glow peaking around the horizon about a quarter to six in the morning. While on final approach, the plane lowers above a large mass of water - I assumed it was a lake... Continue reading

On a rainy October day, I set forth to two counties that I had never set foot on: England and Uganda. I must admit, before I made plans to go to these countries, I never knew exactly where they were located. Geography had never been a strong point for me;... Continue reading

I never thought that I would end up traveling to Africa, but the trip fell neatly into place. How many people can say that they flew halfway around the world to a country so absolutely foreign to them. That's just what I did the same year I took my first... Continue reading

Traveling to Mexico created a new monumental stamping of my life. I turned eighteen that year, I just graduated high school, and it was my first journey across the border without my parents. I found my legal freedom and the world laid at my feet. I know what you must... Continue reading

I will start by saying that before I was traveling across the oceans, I saw much of the pacific west as a child. Washington, Oregon, California, and Idaho contain some beautiful landscapes; however, Washington is the most beautiful of them all by far. Here in Washington, we have countless lakes,...
