Only in Pine Mountain can you swing through the trees, visit a wild life animal reserve, and still be grounded by the historical significance of our natural lands. We may be “small town USA” but do not underestimate us! We have many cultures found around Pine Mountain. You have Jose, who is the...Tags:
Just a few weeks ago my friend had nudged me slightly as we walked through the hallways of our school. He was staring at his feet with a solemn expression as his silly dinosaur sunglasses bounced atop his head. I smiled sadly and nodded. “I miss it too,” I had said. Everyone has that one experience...Tags:
We were an interesting bunch. Me, my little sister, my mom, her two sisters, their two daughters, and my grandmother. 8 women, from 3 generations, on a trip across the northernmost parts of India. We were driving up, near the mountain peaks, when we stepped out of the car momentarily, to absorb the...Tags:
Mobile, Alabama. Home of sweet tea, seafood, and Southern accents. But that describes at least half of the other southern cities in the United States. To me, Mobile is more than just a run-of-the-mill southern city which people insist on underrating! Mobile is my home, and I’m going to do it...Tags:

I was wanting nothing more out of our vacation than a change of scenery...Tags:
It was our family's first two-day hike, and we were well prepared. Which is to say we had three backpacks full of sleeping bags, a large tent and tarp, as well as water bottles, a dozen cans of Spam, some beans, and a big bag full of various nuts. We drove up to Lake Moraine from the Lake Louise...Tags:
September 13, 2009, 1:30 AM. I boarded EVA Air Flight BR17 at the San Francisco International Airport bound for Jakarta, Indonesia. The purpose of my trip: badminton training for the next three months to qualify for the Inaugural Youth Olympic Games in Singapore in 2010. This may seem extreme to...Tags:
I was not ready for this. I mean, come on! I was going to be separated from my boyfriend, all my friends, and anyone I even just KNEW for an entire week and a half! How lame. I was sort of excited, but I did not want to let it show as I said my final goodbyes to my friends. So, Day 1. We drove to...Tags:
