Feeding the Masses in Puente Piedra

5 Comments 11 November 2014

Three times every day 50+ people sit down at wooden tables with colorful plastic plates piled high with food at Project Peru, the refuge my niece and I had been volunteering at outside of Lima for a week. I knew it was no easy process to put food on those plates every day, as kids [...]

The World is Scary

10 Comments 31 October 2014

Every country has them…abandoned scary places. Places that give you goose bumps and make the hair on the back of your neck prickle.

Machu Picchu a Decade Later

9 Comments 16 September 2014

I’m in the same place a decade later, sitting on the terraces of Machu Picchu. The scenery has the same awe-inspiring feel. And once again for the 2nd time I am left wondering ‘how did the Incas do that?’ as I gaze upon the stone architecture. There is a constant din of noise filling the [...]

Sun Kissed Australia

8 Comments 26 June 2014

There’s a reason why Here Comes The Sun is one of my all time favorite songs – the sun makes me happy.  I’m one of those people who need to see it and feel the warmth on my skin to be in a good mood.  Luckily Australia was just what the sun doctor ordered; I [...]

The View From My Rickshaw

16 Comments 22 May 2014

Only one team member can drive at a time during the Rickshaw Run, so that means half of the time you are a passenger.  As a passenger, the back seat wasn’t very comfortable, but somehow we managed to sleep, eat, drink, and backseat drive all from the rear seat.  A few days when I had [...]
