Recent Trip Posts
EMILY VANHAITSMA – We adjusted to the altitude together, bargained in the markets together, and hiked up mountains we thought were impossible to climb.
TESS YOUMANS – I have always been comfortable with the discomforts that come along with travel; cold showers, unexpected weather, language barriers, running out of currency, the list goes on.

KEIRA GROBBEL – While some visited the Temple of Sun, and others toured the coffee museum, I, along with Tess, Alex, Charlie, and Emily, wandered the streets of the city.
RACHEL WICKEY – I slowly, but surely, packed up all my things, trying my hardest to have my pack as weight free as possible because I was going to endure a 8 hour hike through the Inca Jungle.

ALEXANDRIA D’ANTONIO – Initially, Avishai wanted three strong boys to help with the compost project but instead he got Ashley and I as volunteers, and we hauled ass.
