Across the intersection and through the gates, my family and I arrived in Sandy Bottom Nature Park. Gazing at the sky, inhaling the fresh air, and then viewing the various wildlife surrounding, this area of Hampton, VA seemed so unfamiliar to me. I was unaware of this place within this...Tags:
March 29, 2009 was a week that I will never forget! Every teen hope that on their spring break something new will happen that has never happened before and I was able to experience that feeling. Not only was it something new but I was able to spend time with my family along the way. It was my...Tags:
There is so much to say about my adventure. I have to start somewhere. My dad had this 'idea' that we should take a family trip to Oaxaca. I had to wake up and go to LAX airport, which, by the way is insane even at 2:30 a.m. I slept the whole flight. We land and a guy that I do not even know comes...Tags:

I am cold. I am tired. I am wet. But as I sit on the bus on my way back to our hotel, I am also the most content that I can ever remember being. River rafting down the River Tay in Scotland has just become my favorite sport and joking about it with my fellow People to People Student Ambassadors,...Tags:
When I say Winnipeg, Manitoba is my favorite place in the entire world, people look confused. In Canada, Winnipeg is notorious as number 1 on the Winter Weather Misery Index. (The wind chill is sometime -55 F), and is very flat. One of my hockey camp friends said, "If your dog runs away, you can...Tags:
I decided to go on a Missions Trip to the Dominican Republic with Youth With a Mission (YWAM) on a whim. What began as a capricious decision, however, became the most life-altering experience I've ever had. The first day of my expedition was unequivocably the worst. To start the day off, my...Tags:
