  • We literally hit the ground running. I can only imagine how strange it must have been to see nearly 300 student musicians and singers running through the Heathrow Airport with their all of their luggage and carry-ons, desperately trying to stay on schedule. Our London tour guides were already...

  • The biggest fear I had about visiting my hometown for the first time in seven years was that nothing would ever be able to live up to the idea of San Francisco that I had created in my head. I had cobbled together the vision of a dream town from the stories my parents used to tell me and the...

I was determined to climb all 1,300 ft....

  • Traveling to Costa Rica opened my eyes to an entirely new world. I never thought I could learn so much about myself and about another country in such a short time. I went on this adventure through a program in my high school and worked extremely hard to fund the entire trip.   My fellow travelers...

  • Between the lifestyles of Hollywood, California and the haunting encounters on the Queen Mary located in Long Beach California, I had the adventure of my life. This has been my third time visiting California but none of my experiences have been as good as this. My first Visit was Disneyland in...
