  • 'It's North of Steven's pass and South of Glacier peak, it has to be fun!', my parents cajoled. Both places sounded cold, at the moment I was warm. I didn't want to go. My sister and I schemed like a pair of old warlocks, we planned all sorts of ways to waylay or avoid our impending doom. Our...

  • This summer my family and I spent several days in Colorado Springs, Colorado. I strongly recommend going there if you are looking for a fun, exciting vacation or just some time to relax. Colorado Springs has something for everyone. One of the best features of the Springs is its weather. Coming...

  • My family's trip to New York City was in celebration of my sixteenth birthday. With my dad being from Brooklyn and my mother's best friend being from Queens, nobody needed much convincing. The flight there was interesting enough, seeing as how it was my friend's first time on an airplane. She was...

  • My recent travel experience was not just seeing another country, but rather experiencing it. Recently, I had the privilege to travel to, live, and study in Alicante, Spain. I spent three weeks this past June immersing myself into the culture and lifestyle of a Spaniard while taking college level...

  • Soft, blue waves crashed on the clean, sandy beaches. Seagulls soared over the aquamarine ocean calling at the gurgling waves beneath. A light breeze blew against my shoulder as I sat on the warm sand beneath the comforting sun. I laid back and closed my eyes as I breathed in the salty spray of the...

  •  Flying for hours through the air; going through clouds and atmosphere; crossing oceans and other bodies of water; feeling a sense of superiority simply because you are thousands of feet above sea level. These are some of the reasons why I enjoy traveling. Even if one is used to traveling, going...

  • Last summer my family and I traveled to the east coast for a historical vacation. We traveled from Washington D.C, to Pennsylvania, and finally to New York. While we were in Washington D.C.   we had the opportunity to visit a great number of the Smithsonians. I really enjoyed the American History...

  • One trip in particular stands out from our vacation in Crete: our trip to Spinalonga (spin-a-long-a) Island, a rocky formation just off the coast that is famous for its Venetian fortress and deserted village (both decaying) .  Initially I wasn’t interested in going, partially because my stomach and...
