  • This summer I was given the opportunity of a life time-- to travel for sixteen days through France. I don't think pictures or what I wrote in my journal will ever really show how grateful I am to have been able to visit a country as rich in history as France. I learned so much and saw so many...

  • All my life, I’ve been blessed.  However, I haven’t really had the opportunity to travel to very many exotic places. So, the summer before I turned 16, when my parents told me our family was going to take a cruise to Mexico, I was absolutely thrilled!                 Throughout the trip, I was...

  • In the summer of 2006, I went on the trip of a lifetime. My aunt and uncle took me to Paris, France for eight days. I look back on this trip and I do not even think of it as a vacation, I think of it as an experience of a lifetime. We started our trip like any other -- a six hour plane ride and a...

  • Two spring breaks ago I had the best vacation of my life. Aside from going on our normal vacation to Ocean City, we decided to take a cruise to Cozumel, Grand Cayman, and Jamaica. I was introduced to different cultures, foods, and entertainment. It was wonderful to see how my way of life differs...

  • The clouds were threatening to burst open as my dad and I were walking along the streets of Paris. This dark skyline did not make the city any less desirable, perhaps it just enhanced my need to belong. I was in love with Paris. Although I had been here once before when I was younger, I had...

  • On spring break of 2012, my school took a select group of French students to see France itself. Unless one counts going to the Bahamas on a cruise, this was my first time really leaving the country. Little did I know, but this trip would be a life changing experience.             We got a taste...

  • From the noisy urban streets, I made my way to the glass pyramid outside the Louvre in Paris. From there, I entered into the enormous building where I purchased tickets to start my tour. The absence of noise compared to the masses of people outside the museum was outstanding. It was a time where I...

  • Cincinnati, Ohio. Just another city in the Mid-West, right? Wrong. Cincinnati is one of the greatest cities in Ohio. With our stunning river front view, our bustling downtown, and the newly gentrified Over-the-Rhine, what else could we have in store? For starters, Cincinnati has the 7th best...

  • Every summer my family and I take a plane to Denver, Colorado and drive three hours through the bare country in order to reach our destination to a small, barren town of Kimball, Nebraska. Many people do not understand why my family would visit a place where there is "nothing to do" since it is...

  • Disney World. It’s genius, really, turning a childhood into the most well-known theme park in the world. Every three years, the Quincy Senior High music department takes “the Disney trip”. The marching band, orchestra, and concert choir make the eighteen hour drive during Christmas break to Orlando...
