  • Nothing can compare to the thrill of packing the car, hitting the highway, and allowing a toddler to navigate. Oh yes, when my family travels we have one tradition: never choose the destination beforehand. This method has served us well over the years and our vacation to Colorado and Utah was no...

  •   Three Years Later   My entire life has been a travel story, part of my history that will forever be improvised on my heart. It was not painted by just an experience, but by a new language, a culture, a foreign people, a life sacrificed and replaced by the reality of fear, danger, kidnapping, and...

  • One family vacation that really sticks out in my mind is the family trip we took to Kona (the big island of Hawaii). It was my mom, dad, little sister and I who went. When we go on vacations together we aren’t just a family, we are best friends. When we went on this trip we got to do tons of...

  • Each city is significant for a distinctive reason.

Upon my arrival, I was shocked to see a city of dirt and disorder. ...

When you’re in an airplane, above most of the pollution and a lot of the atmosphere, the contrast between the blue of the sky and the white of the clouds is inspirational. I was on an airplane with my aunt...

  • My first year of high school had flown by. I was totally and completely excited about the trip. I, along with several other students from Sun Valley, had been nominated by the band director to attend a tour of five countries in Europe. This was the most amazing opportunity I had ever been presented...

  •   In March of my Sophomore Year, I spent two weeks on a Humanities trip with my school abroad. We visited five countries in two weeks, Germany, England, CzechRepublic, France, and Switzerland. We went to tons of museums, restaurants, and castles, and it was a life changing experience. Experiencing...

  • If you tremble at the sight of the world’s largest rodents, shudder at the thought tackling the metric system, or faint at the sight of “men-who-shouldn’t-be-wearing-Speedos” wearing Speedos -- Rio de Janeiro probably isn’t for you. But if you want an entirely new cultural experience -- unique...
