  • This past summer I spent a month in Israel with a Jewish tour group, and over that period of time I set some personal records. To list a few, there was longest time spent without sending a text message, most sweating done over the course of a day, and let’s not forget my first (and hopefully last)...

  • Knowing that my family and I were leaving for beautiful sunny California in less than day made me so stoked. Finally, I get to leave lame bipolar Oregon. Nevertheless, my body was pretty burnt out from running around this Five bedroom house looking for my necessity. It contained about half my...

  •            Rolling hills and death-defying slopes hinted with lush green grass and the multi-colored buildings. This sight cannot be captured in the United States, but only in the beautiful countryside of Italy, a place that I was fortunate enough to visit in an unexpected manner.             A few...

  • “No, I’m not too old to be a Girl Scout,” I told the man sitting next to me on the plane. I get tired of saying that. Before you ask, we do more than sell cookies, too. Way more in fact. At that moment I was jet set on a nine-day London and Paris Destinations trip with forty-seven of my sister...

  • The summer of 2011 to date, has been the most incredible summer of my life. Not because my family and I traveled to some upscale, fluffed up resort. Instead, a humbling trip to the island of Anna Maria, FL is what truly shaped me. Flashback to a year ago, I was 16 and entitled. I felt like I...

  • My name is Jane Morice, and I am currently a junior at Rocky River High School in Rocky River, Ohio. Rocky River is a suburb about 10 minutes outside of Cleveland. This past summer, the summer of 2009, I went on a trip that changed the way I look at the world, the people that live within it, and...

  • In June I traveled to Alaska, expecting to only build houses, but I got much more than that. From atop mountains I relished in magnificent views of the Gulf of Alaska, ate delicious red salmon caught just two hours past, and glimpsed into the diverse Native American culture contributing to the...

  • My sister and I made our way to the nearest underground station, walking swiftly past the plethora of shops lining Oxford Street as light, but steady rain fell. Taking the Jubilee Line from Bond Street, we deftly maneuvered the crowds of people streaming through the turnstile onto their...

  • Summer time: a time to relax, soak in the sun, take a dip in the pool, go to the beach, maybe go on a boat ride and where can people get all of this in one place? FLORIDA!  Sunny, warm, happy, peaceful Florida. Yes, I know what you are thinking: EVERYONE goes to Florida for a vacation, it will be...
