    Cinque Terra Italy is a real life fairytale travel destination.  Two summers ago, I went to Italy with my family, and Cinque Terra was my favorite place we stayed.  Cinque Terra is in Northwestern Italy bordering the coast, and is made up of five hillside towns: Monterosso, Vernazza, Manarola,...

    Its hard to believe that it was just over seven years ago that I first set foot on Acadia National Park. Now, five years later, I returned to that land. But to me, it wasn’t just another part of the country that I was standing on. It was more like another part of my imagination. I had seen plenty...

    The plane was huge, but felt small as we landed in the country of my birth. It was a place that I had left fourteen years earlier, just days short of my second birthday, obviously not able to make the decision whether to stay or leave. That decision was made for me by my Indian birthmother and my...

    One seat, my iPod, my best friend and a 15 hour plane ride across the world. Being me and saying this isn't too common. You could never imagine anyone in my family saying these words. You can say we aren't the 'richest' in the bunch, but hard work and having goals helped me get through the payment...

I like knowing that I will be in a certain spot, at a certain time, on a certain day. But, as I found out through my vacation two years ago, sometimes the unexpected things turn out to...

    Landing in the Dominican Republic this past january, I was extremely uncertain. I had never been on a missions trip before, or even experienced much poverty. All at once however, I was being completely immersed in a third world country and its lifestyle. The trip consisted of two weeks, and I was...

    I shifted in the metal folding chair, picking at the threads of my shirt. Nervous, I glanced at my host family, who surrounded me in a semi-circle. Thirty eyes stared expectantly back at me. Intimidated, I lowered my eyes back to my hands, which had now unraveled the thread.               I was...

        Typically when you go on vacation, you tend to gain a few pounds here and there. For me, it was the opposite. But the weight I lost can’t compare to the memories I gained while I visited the Turks and Caicos Islands last summer.     “Chelseeeaaaa! Get in the shower right now!” my friend Annie...
