  •       Twilight: the series that took the world by storm. What, you may ask, does this have to do with a vacation? Well, my family got it in their heads that I was a diehard, Edward-obsessed fan, and proceeded to plan a Twilight-inspired tour of the Northwest coast, including a few stops in...

  • When I Was 16...       I haven't been here since I was 18 months old. Everything is different, the smells, tastes, views, even the way they measure things!

  • Three summers ago I had the opportunity to go to France with my school, to participate in a friendly sports competition against other catholic schools around the world.
