  •             For spring break my mom and I went to San Miguel, El Salvador. El Salvador is just at tiny country of the coast of the Pacific Ocean. It is a tropical country meaning it is very hot and humid.             When we got there the only thing you could feel was the heat and the humidity, it...

  • This last month, my father and I embarked on a journey that would change our lives forever. Not really. It actually just made us really tired and want to go home.But the journey was definitely epic. Not many 17-year-olds can drive cross country in a car with their father and come back in one piece...

  • Cincinnati, Ohio is an absolutely beautiful city that creates an atmosphere unlike any other. The city has so many different sides to it, each of which help you discover cultures from all around the world. If you come, I would definitely suggest the Cincinnati Zoo . This zoo has animals from all...

  •                  Travel is a funny thing.  It can make you or break you.  From personal experience I must say that some people are just not cut out with traveling anywhere too distant from their homely suburb or culdesac.  Travel can throw people completely out of their element, force them to think...

  • The sky was blue and the air fresh and warm with no humidity.   What a glorious afternoon to hike with my family at BryceCanyonNational Park, along the Navajo trail, which reopened after a rock cave-in only a year before.  The steep path snaked into the canyon.  As we trekked down my hiking boots...

  • There is a difference between a vacation and a trip.  A vacation often involves actions such as sipping or lounging.  Trips are a little more heavy-duty--sightseeing, discovering.  Both can be highly enjoyable. In February 2011, I realized my favorite genre of travel -- the service trip.  Service...

  • I never thought it was physically possible to eat rice and beans at every meal for two weeks and not get sick of them, let alone enjoy them.  I’ve been back in the United States for two months since my trip to Nicaragua.  I have the ability to open my refrigerator and decide what I want to eat.  I...

  • It was, perhaps, not an ideal situation. Rain slammed the weary horde of travelers. Wind assaulted them. Time snickered in tiny ticks and whirrs. Frowns and wrinkles confirmed the obvious: it was, certainly, not an ideal situation.  But amongst them was me: dripping, frozen and inexplicably happy...

  • During my sophomore year of high school I took the most life-changing trip of my life.  I signed up for the school-offered Alternative Spring Break trip and before I knew it, I was on one of two Greyhound busses heading to New Orleans, Louisiana with over 60 people from my school.  None of them I...

  • Four months ago while talking to my uncle I decided that it was high time for a road trip.  I started saving every penny I earned in my after school pharmacy tech job, in preparation for a month long road trip from Idaho through Arizona and California. On the first of July I left my life long home...
