I could try and try and try, yet never be able to fully express my gratitude to each one of you for making this amazing summer with @rusticpathways possible. Without your loving support back home and/or your dedicated help in-country, there's just no way I would have been able to give these kids my all. I truly believe that you helped to change the lives of many capable and well-equipped students from across the world. You helped make them more curious, and thus inspired. You helped them become more empathetic, and thus kinder. You helped them grow into service-minded global citizens. You helped change their world, and you sure as hell changed mine.

From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU!! ...(you tha real MVP) 👏🏆❤

(Dont worry mom, I'm safe). 🐒🌎🌊

"Que estás haciendo?" le pregunté.
"¡Estoy jugando!" me respondió.

Yo también.
Un recuerdo que la vida es tan seria como quieres que sea.
...So go play! #RPstaffTravels

Happy July 26th to my Cuban brothers and sisters! Thank you for teaching the world the power of perseverance and the importance of standing with bravery for the good of others. Giving you my support, thanks, and best "Che Steel" impression on this important day. #HastaLaVictoriaSiempre ✊🇨🇺

(S/O to @a_foteff for reminding me to pack a @trailblazers shirt) 👌

Had the privilege of working with some of the funniest, kindest, and most intelligent young humans these last two weeks here in Cuba with @rusticpathways. I am so lucky (and proud) to have been your PL, educator, friend, and source of bad-to-semi-decent dad jokes. Be well, be strong, and don't stop doing good ✌❤

"Mi gente!" With the first ¡Viva Cuba! program in the books, I am left with an empty wallet, a patched eye, a few pounds lighter, but a full heart. I'm gonna miss this @rusticpathways crew, but am excited for what this next team is gonna learn. Sending you all my love!

Grabbing a quick drink where an old friend of mine was inspired #Hem(I)ngwayWasHere 😊📚🍸 NOTE: hit me up on the Cuban WhatsApp if you need anything... I'll be disconnected for bit ✌

Sometimes it takes just one night to fall in love. I'll see you in August, Rustic DR Fam ❤✌🌎
¡Me voy a Cuba! 💼

Happy Cinco de Mayo from the most interesting dog in the world and the seasick dude in the second pic. 🍻🎉🌴 As you're chugging those cervezas tonight, take a second to think about how valuable Mexican culture is to us and the rest of the world. Note that the wage gap in the United States is the worst for Hispanics. I ask you to be empathetic. Build people up by breaking down walls... tell POuTUS and the right we don't want no stinkin wall 👌 ¡Felices fiestas!

So grateful I got to spend a ton of time with some of the most amazing people I've met from across the earth. From Tucson, to San Diego, to the Bay and now back to Portland, thank you all for making this a truly unforgettable experience. You rock!!! 🌵🍻❤
