  • The warm, salty breeze stung my nostrils, and the sweet sound of steel pan drums seemed to mimic the rhythm of my heart. Paradise had been found. The beach was the perfect utopia, a completely peaceful and serene getaway complete with Caribbean music and refreshing tropical drinks, Tabyana Beach....

  • 05/15/12               We left at 6 in the evening.  The 18-hour journey to Buffalo, New York gave me plenty of time to think.             My family and I haven’t been that close lately.  Perhaps they’re distancing themselves to prepare themselves for my college-departure.  All I know, is...

  • As far as trips go, mine was quite long. I spent five years of my life in Okinawa, Japan. It was amazing. Setting aside the fact that I was there as a military dependent and went to schools on base, the trip was quite meaningful to me. This may be due to the fact that it was some of the most...

  • I was being forced to stay at my aunt’s house in Utah for a month during the summer of ’11. It was supposed to be a life changing experience; it was, but for all the wrong reasons.

  • Moose meat. I knew I was a true “Newfie” when, at the end of my first week on Fogo Island, Newfoundland, I actually started craving moose meat (I really loved it). I even felt like a Newfie when tourists would ask me for directions. Of course, as soon as I opened my mouth and talked, they could...

  •             The small town of Quincy rests between evergreen mountains in Plumas County in Northern California. The best time to visit Quincy is around Fourth of July weekend. This time is perfect weather for swimming and hiking and the High Sierra Music Festival is in town. I highly recommend...

  • I had always dreamt of going on a magical vacation where I would find romance, adventure, and make memories that would last a life time. I wanted it to be something straight out of a movie -- pure 'Mary-Kate and Ashley movie' fluff. Never did I imagine that this dream could actually come true. I...

  • CNN recently published their list of the best places to live in the United States, and my hometown of Fishers, Indiana placed number eight because of its low unemployment levels, high quality of education, and low housing costs.  However, Fishers is a bubble that insulates us from the reality of...
