  • In June, 2011 my family and I went to Maui, Hawaii for a week. This was provided to us through Make-A-Wish. My 14 year old brother, Zacahary, is a heart patient and he chose a vacation to Hawaii for his wish. It was in the beginning of the summer so we were surrounded by many people and of course...

  •   My favorite vacation took place in August of 2006. My family, along with three other families, spent the week at Lake Mead, where we found an island to set up camp and spent our days on the lake. We had a blast going out on the boat, swimming, water-skiing, or in my particular case, falling flat...

On a father-daughter trip to Montreal, I snapped a photo of him standing against a painted wall, the sun perfectly striking his face; the...

Then you learn that this is where the President of the United States lives. You then learn in middle/high school that this is where our laws are made, and this...

  • Castles and Communism: A Trip To Budapest Last summer, I landed what may truly have been the best job ever. I spent a month traversing Europe with my close family friends, babysitting and helping out with two kids, Henry and Clara, as their mother taught international law classes to a group of...

  • I finally understood the meaning of “Great Britain” this June. Britain truly is great. I would also describe it as educating, awe-inspiring, beautiful, and supremely life-changing, however those adjectives alone do not come near to covering my experience, but I will try my very best to produce a...
