I was looking through pictures from my trip to Egypt the other day, and I was reminded of the shear beauty of the River Nile from the sky.  The $140 I forked out for a 4.00am wake up and hot air balloon ride was more than worth it! I saw the sun rise directly over [...]

Day Trip: Chattanooga

Day Trip: Chattanooga

Last month, my dad and I took a day trip to Chattanooga, Tennessee.  Looking back on it, we should not have decided to go on the Sunday of Labor Day weekend, but hindsight is always 20/20.  We live about 2.5 hours south of Chattanooga, so we set out around 11.00am thinking that we would be [...]

Going to New England!

So, my friends and I are going to New England! We are most excited about the trip. True, we will miss the peak of the leaves changing, but that's not a big deal. It also gives us an excuse to go back again someday. 🙂 So what are we going to do? Below you'll find [...]

It Wouldn’t be a Cantrell Trip without Drama

Last weekend, I spent a little under 48 hours in Ohio with my sister, Payton.  She had been at Oberlin College all summer working as an intern, and since she was so kind to visit me while I was in Ireland, I visited her in Ohio!  I arrived around 12.30am in the wee hours of [...]

Our two-week tour of Egypt took us as far south as Abu Simbel, which sits eleven miles from the Sudan border, west to the Fayum Oasis and north to Memphis. It was a wonderful trip [...]

What Happens to the Friends You Make Abroad

As you travel around the world, you meet all kinds of people. Some of these people are scum bags, others are God sent.

From the Diary: Scotland

June 20, 2012     5:00 pm     Stirling, Scotland I think everyone in my flat has gone to sleep. It's rather comical that we all were able to go about three days without completely passing out. I slept from about 1:30 pm - 4. Great nap.  The past three days have actually been [...]
