  • When told our "big trip" of spring break was a day trip to Ithaca, a small city only a few hours of my own Rochester, I was less than enthused. I only managed to pump myself up about it after hearing I would have the opportunity to finally visit Cornell University and its amazing Johnson Art Museum...

  • After stuffing suitcases, duffels, chairs, and an assortment of other odds and ends onto the short bus, the 17 of us climbed in. The trip we had been looking forward to for weeks was finally underway. It was a camping trip to Ha Ha Tonka State Park in Missouri and was promised to be a journey...

  •                 Being in a military family all my life, I never appreciated the opportunities I had over others to travel to places many people only dream to go. I was envious of other children who stayed in the same place their whole life, being able to grow strong, long-lasting relationships...

We were on our way to Washington D.C., the capitol of our glorious country. Although I looked like a zombie on the outside (I’m...

  • Girls Week Out. No dads allowed, no boys, just females in all our high-maitenance glory. One week at a ski resort in Virginia: five girls in four rooms, two stories, two kitchens, and two very luxurious bathrooms. The statement, "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas" really did apply--except, you...

We we set to go to Hungary, Poland, Germany, Czech Republic, Austria, and Krakow. It was a 10 day trip. It was the...

  • Traveling experiences have fascinated many individuals around the world. In 2007-2008, the family and I went to Mexico in which we have not visited in eight years, as a family. Many of us were thinking, how would they react when we arrive? Would they notice us? What are we going to do when we get...

  • Of all things, I am happiest to have inherited my father's 'travel gene'. His tales of traversing the European continent with his own father instilled in me a powerful wanderlust, an ache, a passion, a need to connect with the historic cities, like Rome and Paris, that my father encountered, as...
