After tireless efforts to persuade my parents, I finally convinced them that I was ready to experience a mission trip to Africa. I traveled with a group of incredible people affiliated with Gulu Hope (http://guluhope.org/) and ranging from a fifty year old college professor to a recent high...Tags:
Traveling to different parts of the country has always been one of my favorite things to do. Every summer, my friend Sarah and I would conquer all of Cape Cod, including Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard. Every summer, my family and I would travel to Rhode Island to enjoy all that the beautiful beach...Tags:
As I look out the car window, my jaw hits the ground at what I see. Dirt, trash, huts, poverty, sadness. I am sitting in the backseat of a bus that’s chugging its way through the dirt roads of Lusaka, Zambia, Southern Africa. The setting around me is eye popping; it’s not at all what I’m used to...Tags:
A road trip to South Dakota did not seem ideal. My dad, a salesman, had multiple appointments in the state the summer before my sophomore year. I decided to join him in the chance that I would experience some “adventure.” I never traveled to the Dakotas before so I didn’t have any idea what I...Tags:

I have been to twenty different countries and almost all of the states. My father was in the military -- that's how I got so lucky. When it comes to traveling there...Tags:
/*-->*/ The best trip I took was to the Caribbean. It was a cruise aboard the Norwegian Dawn. This incredible journey took me to the Bahamas, Bermuda and Great Stirrup Cay. I had never been out of the country before or on a cruise. My grandparents took us on this cruise as a end of the...Tags:
For most people their hometown is boring, but once in a while they discover something truly magical. This experience usually comes through someone else. Using emotions we become interested. This happened to me on July fifteenth while bike riding with my cousin, Alisha. She was visiting us...Tags:
I awoke as the plane jerked to a stop. My mom, brother and I endured the thirteen hour journey from Minneapolis to Kazan, Russia. We scurried off the plane in hopes of being united with our friends, but unfortunately discovered we would spend the next two hours in a non-air conditioned customs room...Tags:
