Hello Global Glimpse families.  My name is Jake Mitchell and I will be one of the Global Glimpse leaders this year for the first Chicagoland Riobamba, Ecuador trip.  I am excited to meet, get to know and travel with you all on this upcoming adventure to south America.

This will be my second trip with Global Glimpse.  Our days will be filled with action packed adventures, new people, new cultures, new ideas and new experiences.

I lead many of the international trips at my home school and I teach, Video, Photo and Digital Media there.  I am very interested in the art, culture and food from around the world and work to try to recreate many of these foods and experiences at home with my family.  I am planning to document our experience as best as I can through photography and journaling and I hope you will find some way to document and reflect on your experience.  I recommend bringing a sketchbook, camera, journal or whatever you think will inspire your creativity to create.

I cannot wait to meet everyone in person and look forward to our epic adventure, which begins June 20!

See you soon.
