  • I’d love to be able to tell you the story of some exotic travels I’ve had and how I’ve traveled all over Europe or how I’ve done charity work in India, but unfortunately that is not the case. I haven’t had to chance to travel much in my life. I’ve been on few family vacations, but I know the one I...

  • Family vacations have been a summer tradition since I was little. Sometimes we fly, other years we’ve driven, but either way, my parents, two brothers, and I head out of town for a week to discover new things. Throughout the years, we’ve been in over 30 states and after last summer, 10 different...

  •   Our nations capital, Washington, D.C. has it all, history and today.  We began our trip with the Smithsonian’s American History museum. Seeing where we came from with the old memorabilia makes you think about your future. Then we had the opportunity to take a tour of the Capitol building and see...

  • "Ah, this stuff is incredible!" exclaimed Abe in his South African accent as he threw up a pile of snow.

Sadly, this wildly stereotypical depiction of Paris, France was approximately what I had in mind when I first learned I was to visit this...

  •               The world is immeasurable in its size. There are so many places to visit and people to meet. Many cities can be found bursting with history, culture and life. A traveler can find the most breathtaking places or the most heartbreaking. I have gotten many chances throughout my life to...

  • One of the most memorable trips I took was to Kerala, India during the summer of 2008. For me, vacation is not about being on a beach or going shopping but is about spending my time with my family. We left from Detroit on July 25th, 2008.  The three-day plane trip was not fun because of my plane...
