    I'd never been across the sea before. A long while ago I went up to Alaska on a cruise, but even so, I never even left the U.S. except for a layover in Vancouver. I was, in a word, terrified. Leaving home was always tough for me, but knowing that I was to spend 10 hours aboard a plane flying over a...

          Last summer, my family and I took a drive up to the NP of Michigan, but made a stop along the way. We stopped in Green Bay and stayed in the Residence Inn by Lambeau Field so that we could go to the stadium and check out their newly-attained Superbowl trophy. Once we made it downstairs into...
