  • Getting the chance to travel the world is a pretty rare one, so two years ago, when my sister and I got the opportunity to travel across the entire continent of Europe, we readily took it.  Although my parents were unable to join us for the trip, as it was a school sponsored one, our older...

  • This past May of 2007, I was privileged enough to take a trip with 14 other students to Japan.
