  •   In July of 2008, I had the amazing opportunity to travel to Japan with People to People Student Ambassadors. Of course, I couldn’t pass up this once in a lifetime experience because I have a passion for traveling, so I signed up and headed out on an eighteen hour plane ride to Japan for 14 days....

  • Saint George, Utah is popular for vacations. Its excellent winter weather attracts snow birds. Then there are many sites to see and explore. For example; golf courses, Zions, and many other scenic spots. To me, however, the most profound things in Saint George is its historic buildings and Dixie...

  • After my freshman year of high school, our marching band took a trip to Florida. The first part was the worst part of the trip: the bus ride both to Florida and home. It was at least a 24-hour long ride on a coach bus packed with people. It was cramped and crowded. No one could find a comfortable...

  • Ten hours, four sets of security, three new stamps in my passport, two take-offs, two movies, and two landings, the bi-annual family vacation to Lyd had begun. For most people the most eye opening part of a trip is the actual trip, the activities, people, events, but for me things changed with...
