    Travel Journal from United States Florida, United States | Tue Mar 25, 2008

    Finally home at 11p. After an early flight and a LONG bus ride filled with whiny people it was overall a successful journey and adventure. I met some amazingly wonderful friends that will be apart of my life. "The Posse" will always be and I hope to go back to Ecuador with these people one day. However, I believe we could go without the "rich one" and maybe spend an …

    Travel Journal from Ecuador Guayaquil, Ecuador | Sun Mar 23, 2008

    We leave today, crazy how fast it seemed to go. Woke up and made our way downstairs by 6:30am. We boarded the bus and began a long day travel, probably the worst day of the trip. Went to the airport, checked it, and made the four hour flight. It was bittersweet as we landed as I was ready to reach American soil. As happy as we may have been to …

    We left the hotel this morning back to Guayaquil, with a few scheduled stops along the way. We stopped in an area where the water was a high sifting spot for gold, thus the area had multiple jewelry shops. It was a square of stores, with a small, but beautiful garden in the center of it. When we left that stop, we had lunch at a friendly place about 30 …

  • Community Service

    Travel Journal from United States Florida, United States | Thu Mar 13, 2008

    I have been a member of clubs and organizations throughout my life. Through these activities I have done numerous community service projects. They range anything from clothing and food drives to pulling weeds at the local fairgrounds. The most touching was volunteering at a retirement home. I actually got to see how I impacted other indivuals lives. I think it is important for all individuals to do community service sometime throughout …
