"My Perfect Island" Patagonia, Chile
This is an Island on Lake Pehoe in Patagonia. It is named my perfect island because the water is so blue, it is secluded with few passengers, and there are gorgeous mountains in the background.
"Blue 30" Chefchaouen, Morocco
On one of the first weekends in Morocco a few friends and I went to Chefchaouen. Wandering from one street to the next the color of Chefchaouen washed over us. Doorways began to vanish into walls.
"To See the World Through the Eyes of a Child" Guanajuato, Mexico
This photo was taken at my internship with ELAP at a girl's orphanage in the city. This is out in the backyard of the building and I am playing with one of the younger girls, Alejandra. The ELAP Spring Break team came out and put in these tires and painted them. Ale LOVED to play with them! Almost everyday that I was there she would ask if I would help here to jump on them because some of them were too far for her to jump from one to the other. My ELAP experience has influenced me immensely and I still think about these girls everyday.
"Stuck in the Sahara" Sahara desert, Morocco
While traveling from a typical desert city back to our campground, ISA Sevilla & ISA Granada got stuck in the sand. I love this photo because not only are we stuck in the middle of the desert, we all worked together to get us out of the sand.
"Man vs. Beast" Sevilla, Spain
A novillada bull fight at the Plaza de Maestranza in Sevilla. I thought this was a full fledged bullfight until someone informed me that this was just an amateur fight! This bullfighter had such style in his face-off with the bull.One of the most exciting things I did on my trips.
"Montserrat" Montserrat, Spain
This photograph is of the Benedictine abbey of Santa Maria de Montserrat and the surrounding mountainside. Our trip here included a hike to the tallest peak, and the views from up high were pretty fantastic. The fingerlike rock projections on the hillsides made the view truly unique.
"Fitting In" Praia Joaquina, Florianópolis, Brazil
Muwee, Zach, and Eddie decided they wanted to look more Brazilian. It was only after they bought the speedos that the saleswoman let them know that it's not actually very common for young guys to wear them...
"Dryer" Meknès, Morocco
To accompany our French style washer was a long clothesline on our apartment rooftop. Strategically, we would plan laundry day to exist between the many Meknes rainy days.
This photo was taken in Ruswil, Switzerland on June 3, 2011. This picture was taken on a random hill in the countryside of Switzerland. I like this picture because amazingly, when I took it the cows all looked directly at me, which I thought was strange but it made a cool picture!
