  • The day of August 7, 2009 had finally arrived. It was this day when I was off to Las Vegas, Nevada for the very first time. I woke up very early that morning, ready for an exciting eight-hour drive to the state of Nevada. It was about eleven a.m. when we began to see the big billboards and the...

  • I knew the last thing that would help me was to panic. Which was, of course, exactly what I did. For the last three weeks, twenty-two of my classmates and I had been awed by China.

  • The recession’s effects are hitting virtually every non-essential aspect of our lives and money expenditures. One thing that is being cut too frequently is vacations.

  •         This is a completely true story about my family’s absolutely worst vacation ever to Port Bolivar in Galveston Texas. Before we left for our summer vacation to the beach when I was twelve years old I decided to get my hair colored for the first time. It was terrible. My parents let me...

  • In 1492 Columbus sailed the ocean blue...oh wait, that wasn't us.  But, I guess it kind of was.  We started off by loading up the blue SUV for a long trek across this great land known as the United States.  My dad loves history and wanted to visit Gettysburg.  I thought, great just what I wanted...

Regardless of the difference in the language spoken or the food consumed or whatever it is, I truly feel comfortable and at home. I know, however, that I don’t have enough experiences to...

  •               Every year my mother plans our annual family trip. She spends hours planning and searching for the perfect destination; one year we spent a couple of weeks in Denmark, during another vacation my family attempted to camp in Morro Bay. These trips are very important to my family because...

  • Early this summer, I took an amazing road trip with my family. We drove from Kirkland, WA across Idaho, Montana, Wyoming and South Dakota, to see Mt. Rushmore and Yellowstone State Park. We left the day school got out for my brother Aidan and I. Along the way, we toured other less known places...
