Pie. Raspberry Pie. Cooling just next to the oven on a wire rack. The sweet, tart fragrance fills the kitchen, making my mouth water. It’s my Grammy’s pie. She always makes it for my mom’s birthday. Her log cabin up in the colds of Canada is one of my favorite places in the world, and the smell of raspberry pie can instantly bring me back there. But I’m not there now. I’m standing outside a bakery somewhere far from her log cabin, an insane grin plastered over my face at the smell of raspberry pie.

While it’s all well and good to furnish eager pupils with knowledge, many teachers also have a hankering to indulge in a little extracurricular learning themselves. If this can be achieved in a beautiful setting among wonderful people without the help of actual French lessons, then so much the better.

It’s cold. Painfully cold. So cold, I begin to question the logic behind my thrill seeking madness. It’s these sort of crazy people that end up on the news, right? The headlines screaming American Found Frozen Between Tectonic Plates, Iceland. The water is only up to my ankles, and already, a string of eclectic language has escaped my lips. It’s now or never, though. The frozen body of a Hawaii teen was located in the chilly waters of Iceland… I double-check that my mask is on tight, dry suit valves are locked and closed.

A Symbol of Serbian Endurance: Ćele Kula - Skull Tower

by Lukas Bruihler / Jan 09, 2013 / 0 comments

In the early 1800s, the Serbs were growing restless of the Ottoman’s rule. They formed a band of around 10,000 rebels, led by Stevan Sinđelić. Advancing on the city of Niš, the rebels encountered a force of nearly 30,000 Turkish soldiers. The Serbs defended their positions, but when there was no hope of anyone surviving, Stevan Sinđelić went onto the gunpowder stores and fired his flintlock pistol into the barrels of powder. He blew up everyone on the battlefield, including all of the attacking Turks and his men, too.
