  • The night before our flight to Shanghai was absolutely hectic, full of tears, sweat, and all the chaos in between. It was as if some magical elf had barged into my room, stole all that seemed insignificant but now, full of purpose, and snuck out unnoticed- in a matter of a few seconds. Before you...

  •   When people think of the ocean they may think of the sand and water, while others may have images of horrifying shark attacks.  Every thought of the beach was terrifyingly scary but I was sure it would pass. On every trip we take as a family we drive even if would have taken us 2 days. From our...

  •   Over the summer of 2009, I spend a week at Ithaca College for Math Camp, and it was the highlight of my summer. The average person would say going on vacation to another place would be the best traveling experience but, not me; going to this college was the best experience for me. That week...

  • Maui Awakening      Two short weeks before Christmas my family and I ventured across the pacific to take a vacation. For me, the last few weeks of 2009 were spent exploring the warm, tropical island of Maui, Hawaii. In my lifetime, I have traveled to many states across the country, but none...

  • My heart was beating fast as I speed walked through the entrance of Universal Orlando’s Islands of Adventure, my family struggling to keep up. I ignored Seuss Landing’s whimsical atmosphere as well as the Lost Continent’s exotic landscape. My face broke into a ridiculously huge grin as I rounded...

  • Sweat poured off Patrick Henry's face as he stood in the hot, 85-degree heat, speaking passionately on how he felt about what had just occurred in this town. The hope of rain that we'd had a few minutes before had been snatched away, and the sun was beating down on us once more. It was May, 1774,...
