Turkey is one of my favorite countries that I have traveled to. I enjoyed Turkey so much that my “two week” visit there stretched to almost two months! Turkey is so diverse! I saw so many unbelievable sights and had such spectacular experiences that I could write a book about Turkey itself (but I won’t for now!). When you think about Turkey, you may think of the incredible mosques in Istanbul, the historical ruins of Ephesus, the beautiful beaches of Bodrum, or the magical fairy chimneys in Cappadocia (all of which I will write about in another blog post). However, one of my most memorable experiences was attending a circumcision ceremony.

Traveling is one of my great passions. I discovered this passion when I had the privilege of traveling with the international musical and educational program, Up With People. In one year, we travelled through 35 states in the United States (including the beautiful islands of Hawaii), throughout China, and performed in the Superbowl Halftime Show in New Orleans. I will write more about my travels with Up With People in future blog posts as it certainly stands out as a very important time of my life. Since that marvelous year, my thirst for traveling only magnified. I am so grateful to have visited 48 countries so far. In fact, one of my goals is to see as much of this beautiful world as I can. These photos represent some of the amazing places I have been to.
