While living and studying in the Netherlands, my wife and I traveled extensively throughout Europe including: Belgium, France, Switzerland, Spain, Portugal, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Scotland, Germany, the Czech Republic, Italy, Luxembourg, Greece, and Denmark. This experience was amazing and opened my eyes to cultural and sociological experiences I never could have imagined. I have also traveled through much of the continental United States and have a great appreciation for the culture found here at home.
