  • Now, when most people think of a relaxing vacation, they usually think of places such as Florida, or the Caribbean. But might I ask, who thinks of a soothing summer holiday in such a small town as Easton; let alone the minute state of Connecticut? Well, I would: Seeing as I've lived here for most...

  • Music is magic. In the Colorado Springs Children’s Chorale we spread that magic all over the world. In the summer of 2005, my group, the Pikes Peak Singers, was privileged to go to New Zealand, Australia, and Japan. Every place was wonderful, but Japan had the greatest impact on my life. Imagine a...

The Acropolis sits on a plateau above the city on display for the world to see. I was entranced by Athens’ history and beauty by day, but...

  •   It was as if Christmas morning was just hours away, and I would miss it if I drifted off to sleep.

  • I would have to say that my trip to Myrtle Beach was the most memorable experience that I have had. I went there during the summer of 2008 and it was the best trip I went on. We stayed at the Best Western Carolinian Beach Resort. I personally thought the hotel with the suite was really nice and...

  •               Family trips mean a lot to me. I have the most fun going out with my family to do something memorable and getting closer to them doing so. So, a little more than a year ago, when my parents told my brother and me that we were going to Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming, I was super...

  • My senior year was approaching, so my aunts that live up in Monterey, CA invited me to come stay with them during my spring break. No other family, just me. They explained they wanted me to see what it was kinda going to feel like living away from my home also to consider going to college up...
