  • On August 6, My Family and I, got on a plane, to go to Yellow stone, in Wyoming. We got to Wyoming, around four in the afternoon, and drove all the way to the top of Yellow stone to our first hotel, which was actually a Cabin, In Mammoth Hot Springs.

Top that off with nearly all communication around you in silence.  What you are imagining right now is exactly where I...

  • “Ciao bambini! Hello Kids!” My Italian host, Beatrice; my roommate, Cindy; and I greeted the others as we arrived at the bus station ready to depart on a day trip to Venice.

  • Growing up in a family of six kids with my mom and dad, we never had the chance to go “see the sights,” so until just recently did I think traveling was just going to be a pain, why even bother.
