  •               Have you ever been on one of those vacations where things just get worse and worse? As a child, I took many trips to Texas with my family considering my sister’s lived there. A trip usually takes a turn for the worse when no one really wants to go, and at age five, the prospect of...

  • An Adventure and beautiful scenery– that was the promise my dad and younger brother made to me as we made our way to the trailhead for the MacRae Peak hike on Grandfather Mountain, North Carolina.  It was late in the afternoon before we got to the park on our last vacation day in the Smoky...

  •     This summer I had the opportunity to travel with a choir group to a remote and desolate part of Africa. I saw a land of wild beauty and grace with a touch of devastation that seemed awkwardly out of place.  While there, we traveled to Kibera, one of the largest slums in Africa.  Not having...

  • Here I was. New York City. The big apple. While my relatives felt disdain at the big city, the litter, the people, the crowds, the huge buildings and lack of nature, I, on the other hand, felt right at home. It was like going to my dream city- huge, crowded, and not a steep dirt hill in sight....

  • With the sparkling ocean to my left, and magnificent mountains to my right, it was almost easy to forget what lay between them.  As I sat beneath a blooming mango tree, I reflected on what I had seen so far on this four-day trip. Upon my arrival, I was shocked to see a city of dirt and disorder. ...

  •      My family was about to leave Vietnam in one month.  After visiting all of the relatives, we decided to have a trip to a wonderful place. My aunt suggested going to Dam Sen Park (3 Hoa Binh St., Saigon District 11, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.). Then at about 3:00 PM, we together drove to the...

  • It was inevitable: That day was the day I would declare a war on white folding chairs and the shape of a curve.  Or so was my thought as I stood in the backyard of my aunt Joanie’s house in Virginia, prepping for a wedding to take place the next day. The war had begun; I could feel a cold stare...

  •   I traveled to New York for my Sweet Sixteen! I had been planning this trip since I was about five years old. I fell in love with this amazing, cultured city. There is so much to do and so little time. It helped me learn and re-establish my personal dreams. I went to a Broadway show, Mary...
