  • I remember the time I went to Paris with my family. That was a trip that I will never forget. That was the first time I ever went anywhere outside of the city of Miami. It was on the summer of 8th grade. I remember it being so hot. I was so excited when I got the news that we were going to my...

  • It was that time again.  Time for the Garcia Family Reunion.  Only this time it wouldn’t be hosted in big city home sweet home San Antonio, Texas but in small town Fenville, Michigan.  This meant one thing, family vacation! Actually, a number of family members took advantage of the travel and...

  •      I stepped out of the plane, blanket in one hand, bag in the other, and my "shades" resting on my face.  They looked at my family and I as if we were famous; movie stars or something of high royalty. It was beautiful, but as soon as I stepped outside it got bad.  There was a horrible stench of...

We saw some of the most ridiculous sights, tried everything and anything new, and all in all did our best to experience everything that a two-week period...

These were the conditions under which I began to contemplate if attempting to scale the last and tallest piece of The Great Wall of China...

  • As a bibliophile and foodie, my excursions into my city tend to include the best bookstore in the world and one of many interesting eateries. The nice thing about where I live is that I am never more than sixty minutes away from snow-capped mountains, sprawling beaches, and of course, downtown...

  •               Tennessee, the state of rolling hills, clusters of beautiful trees, and humid hot weather! This is the state I recently traveled to and absolutely loved it! I got the luxury of attending the 2010 NICE (National Institute of Cooperative Education) Conference in Knoxville, Tennessee for...

  • 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...

  • Two weeks before my fifth birthday, I moved to Columbia, Missouri (http://www.gocolumbiamo.com/) for my dad’s new job. Typical of friendly Midwesterners, neighbors we had just met threw a birthday party for me so that we would feel at home. My family and I recognized right away that Columbia was...
