  • Two weeks not too long ago on June 18th 2012 my family and I went on a long car ride in our maroon Ford Flex from our home city of Pasadena to San Diego.  I haven't been to the city of San Diego in almost 13 or so years in my short 17 year old life and can hardly recall any memories at all from...

  •      During my last high school spring break, I took a trip to Spain and England to celebrate my high school graduation and eighteenth birthday. My parents, aunt, grandma, cousin, and I took a flight on Iberia Airlines to the airport in Madrid, Spain. We left LAX ( Los Angeles Airport) and...

  • "Instead of Tijuana, Mexico...we will be driving to Denver, Colorado!" These words met a chorus of unsuppressed groans. A missions trip to Denver, Colorado sounded about as useless and boring as staying home. My entire youth group thought the same thing: what work could we possibly do in Denver? If...

  • New Orleans, Louisiana is the perfect place for tourist to visit. I’ve lived here for 16 years and not once in my life have I had an unexciting day. There’s practically something for everyone to do and enjoy here in the great city of New Orleans. We have countless places to get delicious food,...

  •   Naw-lins. K? Alright, now that I went over that. I was there because I am a Michigan fan. Born and raised in Michigan, and have been a transplant everywhere else that I have lived.  So they were playing in the Sugar Bowl at the Super Dome.  I love this city. It’s stinky, and gross, but...

  • 'Closin' out a section!' That is the announcement that my dad makes when he has checked off every item in one section of his very detailed, refined list of gear to pack for our Minnesota trip. For this reason, it is one of my favorite phrases to hear.Every summer since 1964, my dad has spent a week...

  •             I have always been in love with nature and the cultures of the world. I have always wanted to travel and to see what the world has to offer. Unfortunately to be able to have those opportunities you must have the money, which my family could not afford to spend. I would be even lucky...

  • My heart bum-de-bum-bummed as the travel bus screeched to a slow stop. A team of eleven Hoosiers and I, hailing from little Fort Wayne, Indiana, had boarded this giant orange bus just an hour earlier. Our mission: helping the people of Novi Sad, Serbia learn English at an English chat camp called...

  •     When I decided to host an exchange student last April, little did I know I would become one myself. The student in question was a 17 year old girl from Boeblingen, Germany named Anja who would be staying with me and my family for two weeks. The experience was utter chaos as the exchange group...
