  • I spent seven days this summer in Lares, Puerto Rico, building an altar for the International Bible Baptist church—a trip sponsored by my church in Warminster, Pennsylvania. We flew out of Philadelphia at 7 a.m. and landed in San Juan at 11:30 that morning. The weather was rainy -- dark clouds...

  •           This June 2011, I went on a mission trip to Baltimore, Maryland.  This was quite possibly the most eye-opening experience of my young life.  Not only does Baltimore have a lot to offer in the tourism department, but this city houses some of the kindest individuals I have ever met.  I...

  • As we neared the ground to Cusco, Peru I took notice to the beautiful mountains. Green. Not from the trees... It was an incredible view from above. The farm lands looked like a patchwork quilt of different shades of green and brown. How amazing it is, too, the buildings and houses. Built so...

  • White stone buildings of exquisite architecture, streets full of people from all over the world. These are the bones and life blood of Paris. The noises of cars honking, people talking and laughing. The street vendors selling all manner of food and trinkets. The familiar signs of American company’s...

So when I stepped out of the New Orleans airport this summer and felt one hundred and three degrees...

  •   Our nations capital, Washington, D.C. has it all, history and today.  We began our trip with the Smithsonian’s American History museum. Seeing where we came from with the old memorabilia makes you think about your future. Then we had the opportunity to take a tour of the Capitol building and see...

  • As a teenager I vehemently protest any attempts whatsoever to get me out of bed before 11:00 A.M., I consider this a longstanding tradition that I have upheld since the age of ten. My parents are the type who always took trips to National Parks rather than Disney World or say, Universal. While I...

  • My dad and I travel by train almost every summer, specifically Amtrak (http://www.amtrak.com/servlet/ContentServer?pagename=Amtrak/HomePage).  One train trip that stands out in my mind was my dad’s and my trip by Amtrak in 2009. We traveled from Tulsa to Oklahoma City (http://www.texaseagle.com/...

  •   When I found out that I was going to get the chance to go to France, I was very excited. I'd never been out of the country before and here I was about to travel across the world.  We departed from the Philadelphia International Airport at 6 PM and arrived at the Charles de Gaulle Airport...

  •  When my sister was living overseas in Hong Kong, I jumped at the opportunity to visit her and get a glimpse of what my culture was like.  As a fifth generation Chinese-American, I feel disconnected with my heritage at times, especially when my Chinese friends speak the language and celebrate...
