People from our the CB community have traveled across the globe and back again. The Talon went to find out exactly where their wanderlust has taken them.

Wan·der·lust (noun)- a strong desire to travel.

Some of our very own students and teachers have caught the wanderlust fever. Their desires to travel have taken them to places around the globe such as Peru, Spain and even Greece.

People have many different reasons for traveling across the world. It can be anything from learning about your heritage to a simple family vacation in a new and exotic land.

In this case, George Mathews (’15) traveled all the way to Greece to learn about his own culture and ancestry.

“I have family there and it’s a beautiful place to explore and go to find your inner soul,” remarks the insightful senior about his adventures.

When it came to finding his inner soul, I was quite curious where exactly his soul searching occurred.

“I would suggest for them to go to the beaches or to see the Acropolis,” he says.

Other students from the CB community have different interests for traveling to foreign countries. For Fallon McMahon ’15, traveling was more than just a vacation. This determined senior traveled around the globe for community service in Peru and Spain so that she could help those in need.

“It’s fun to see new places and to be taken out of your element,” Fallon says. “I just love it!”

Near and far, the experiences of exploring new lands amongst us are simply captivating. Along with Fallon, Ms. Tracy Chadbourne loves to be taken out of her comfort zone when she travels.

“You know your true self when you are out of your element,” shares the Spanish teacher, who has been all over Europe and South America.  “We do not realize how good we have it unless we see other things and experience learning. Your mind opens up like a sponge and everything is new again.”

These words of wisdom made me want to jump on a plane right then and there.

There is so much hidden beauty in the world that it is truly a mistake to not go out and experience new things. Time or money may make it difficult to travel to exotic places like Peru or Greece , but experiencing new things is a free opportunity  and happens on a daily basis.

The Talon now challenges you CB students to try this learning experience of traveling so you, can experience the bliss of wanderlust.
