  •  After ten long hours on a plane we had finally arrived.  We were in the land of Israel, a place which I had heard about all my life.  Last summer, my family and my cousins’ family traveled to Israel to celebrate my brother’s bar mitzvah.  This was such a new experience for me, as I had never...

  • There are times in my life when I feel as though I cannot surpass an obstacle in my way.  Every year there is at least one time that the demands of life seem to be overpowering.  But luckily, I can revisit the day I went whale watching two years ago, and remember that life will go on if I push...

  • I have seen the beautiful mountains of Utah many of times. I have always dreamed about skiing on those snow covered mountains. Dreamed about how I would be a natural because it was in my blood. I would strap on my skis, ride the ski lift to the top, and glide down the mountain with skill. I could...

  • For my high school graduation present my father, sister, and I went up to California for a week to visit my cousins. The last time I went up there was when I was about five years old and our family had gone to Disneyworld. Of course, I remembered Disneyworld- after all, it’s the most magical place...

  •     i753.photobucket.com/albums/xx179/ChristinaDeSouza/DSCN0558.jpg       The Eiffel tower was a thing of beauty, but no one ever explains the rush of seeing it firsthand. My heart jumped as we came closer. I had never been to Europe before and I knew right off, that this would be a trip to...
