  • Traveling in Europe was not new to me: I lived there for ten years. I saw many famous sites during those ten years that were not very exciting for my brother and me as children, but now never cease to astonish us. Stonehenge, for example, was just a bunch of big rocks in a circle. God forbid we...

  • “No, no, no don’t take the bus. Everything is close enough to ride the train or walk."              A native New Yorker dragged a nicotine-stained finger along our tourist map, pointing out his favourite restaurants and giving us tourism advice. We stood on the corner of Avenue A and 13th...

  •   In the summer of 2011 my family and I took our traditional trip to Orlando, Florida. Every year we go there to “escape reality” for a few days. I was super excited! When we got there we were hungry so we stopped at Taco Bell to grab a bite to eat. I noticed as we walked in an older Caucasian...

About a year ago, I never dreamed that I would be standing under the Eiffel tower, watching it twinkle at midnight, or gazing at the multi-colored windows in the Sagrada Familia. I never dreamed that I would fall...

  • “Pardon, Pardon” uttered the determined sea of commuters on the streets of Paris. Other than that, they kept to themselves, and we kept to ours. It became clear that rushing businessmen weren't afraid to knock a few tourists from Georgia over. As we powered on through the mid-day crowded streets...

  • Any vacation that my family of six takes is always an adventure, but our three week, whirlwind trip to Europe last summer was by far the most exciting. My family has a knack for standing out wherever we go, and this trip was no exception. Resembling a family of ducks, my mom, three younger brothers...

  • There are so many different people and languages and suitcases and mixed up schedules, and miss-timed flights in airports that they can only be international territory. You can't distinguish a country until you leave the airport. When I flew to Newcastle last year, I had a three hour layover in...

We traveled on the Royal Caribbean Mariner of the Seas and visited the islands of Labadee, Haiti; Ochos Rios, Jamaica; and Cozumel, Mexico. There were 12 of us, including my mom’s parents, their three...
