  • In July 2010, my family and I embarked on Trafalgar’s European Traveller tour encompassing four countries: England, France, Switzerland, and Italy. This tour exceeded my wildest expectations. In addition to visiting the promised tourist attractions in each country, my family made the time to mingle...

  •     Most people would not consider Oakland, California to be a top tourist attraction, but there are, in fact, many areas and events in the city that people of all ages would find interesting. Oakland can offer much of the same fare as its neighboring, much more popular, city of San Francisco --...

  • One trip that has left a humongous impact upon me is the trip I took to Colorado with my softball team. This trip not only was one of excitement and adventure, but also one that taught me the strength of sisterhood.Flying into the Denver Airport, I could already feel the thin air depriving my lungs...

  •      In 2010, my mom, sister, and I traveled to England for a week.  My grandma came to America from London when she was 17 years old, and all of her family still remains in London.  We try to make it back to London and the Isle of Wight every few years to visit our distant relatives.  Personally...

  •   During the summer of 2009 my mother, sister, and I went on a trip to Belgium to visit our family.

  • Sometimes it takes traveling 600 plus miles away from home to be closer with the ones that you live with there. That is exactly what happened when my family decided to take a weeks vacation over spring break to Orlando, Florida, to escape the harsh and bitter cold winter of Minnesota. My brothers...

  • I am not really a nature-lover person, just the thought of insects crawling up my legs and stepping on gooey mud when hiking up a mountain grosses me out, but this trip was an exception. Seeing volcanic white sand, sparkling turquoise water, and interacting with sea lions was amazing.  It all...

  •                In June 2008 my grandma told us that we had to buy used ski poles because we were going to Zion National Park in Utah to hike ‘The Narrows’. What the heck are the narrows and why would we need ski poles in 90 degree weather?                 With grandma’s van packed, we went across...

  • I was born in Seattle, Washington, where I lived until I was four. At that very young age my mother, father, and I made the trek to Texas. I have lived there ever since. I haven’t been very many places in my life. I’ve never even traveled outside the United States, although there was one...
