  Country Visited: Summer in Japan

"Going to Japan was one of the most adventurous decisions I made in my life. Every second that I spent in Japan, I took the opportunity to gain more knowledge about the people and the culture. Tokyo is absolutely by far the most beautiful city I have ever been to in my life. It has definitely captivated my heart and made me even more curious about what Japan has to offer. I wouldn't trade my summer experience for anything in the world."

  Country Visited: Belize

"My trip to Belize really opened my eyes to all the wonderful and beautiful things that are going on in the world every day. If I had to summarize it in one sentence, it would simply be; Best spring break ever! with no exaggeration."

  Country Visited: Australia

“I’ve seen a lot of beautiful places in my life but Australia will forever hold a special place in my heart. If I had to summarize the whole trip it would be like this, “Don’t forget to take a break from cell phones, computers, and TV to see the beauty of the world around you.”

  Country Visited: Galway, Ireland

“Is this real life?” That is the phrase that burned in my mind as I stared out into the raging ocean at the edge of a seven hundred foot cliff.  I muttered to myself. In that moment, I realized this was the most beautiful thing I had ever seen.. something so beautiful, so powerful, so foreign to me, that it was overwhelmingly humbling.
