A new feature that you’ll notice on the right-hand side of your screen is our Blogroll, where we’ll share links to interesting blogs that we recommend.

Right now, we’re highlighting three very special blogs:

  • John in Argentina John is an area high school student who was awarded one of our 18 Global Travel Scholarships to travel abroad this summer.  He’ll be spending four weeks in Argentina, beginning with an orientation in Buenos Aires, followed by a homestay with an Argentinian family. Then he will embark on an ecological adventure through Argentina by foot, boat, and horse.  He’ll be blogging about his experiences, so that we can all share in his adventure with him.
  • Grace in Thailand: Grace is another of our Global Travel Scholars, and she’s headed to Thailand! Her five-week program will begin with a week-long orientation in the northern city of Chiang Mai. From there, she will travel to a small rural village for a homestay and community service project.  Her adventure comes to an end with a few days in historic Sukothai and the country’s capital, Bangkok.  During her trip, Grace will also have the opportunity to explore northern Thailand by foot, raft, and elephant on a rugged trek through remote hill-tribe villages. Follow along as Grace explores Thailand!
