  • You have truly lived, if you have opened your eyes to the wonders of Queensland Australia.  If you ever want to give your eyes a beautiful scene, that will cement to your mind forever, Australia is the place to go.

  • On July 31, 2010 I began a twelve hour journey from Charleston, South Carolina to Detroit, Michigan to Green bay, Wisconsin and then Oshkosh, Wisconsin. My trip started with four complete strangers; these strangers were all freshman at my high school and a new guidance counselor. At the time I...

  • I felt completely out of my element when invited to take a student trip to Israel on late June of 2006. It was a trip designed to do two things—end our Holocaust studies with a trip to Yad Vashem, and open our eyes to the Arab-Israeli conflict. I knew very little of this conflict, except that the...

  • “Okay kids, we’ll go ahead and tell you. We are going to take a weekend trip to Atlanta, Georgia next weekend!” Mom said.      “Really?” I exclaimed.      “We have to go to the Lamborghini dealership!” Kaleb piped in.      “Well, we should start planning,” encouraged Dad.      The next...

  • While my family has been blessed to take some extraordinary vacations across the United States, the most emotional trip I have taken was to the Big Island of Hawaii. My grandparents made all the arrangements to fly my family, my three cousins, aunt and uncle, and themselves to Hawaii as Christmas...

  • They looked at me like I was seven feet tall and bright green, shot down from a flying saucer in a beam of light right before their very eyes. While I was not green and had never rode a flying saucer, I was taller than almost all of the Chinese in this particular village. At five foot nine, with...
