  • I stepped onto the plane en route to the United Kingdom expecting to see incredible historic sites, experience a completely different culture, gain the credibility as a world traveler, and come home with two memory cards filled with my many adventures. Who knew that I would gain so much more,...

  • Recently I visited Mexico and Belize on a cruise with my father.  Our first stop on the cruise was in Cozumel, Mexico and was very beautiful.  Walking down the ocean-strip you can really get a taste of their culture.  There were many different shops with smiling faces in all of them.  The people...

  • I remember hearing the name Bugg’s Island and daydreaming about what treasures were awaiting to be discovered. Since as long as I can remember, my family, and our friend’s family went on camping trips. This trip started out like any old camping trip: we would set up the camper, go fishing, and swim...

  • Taking a vacation to the South Pacific was a new, unexplored experience for me. Growing up in small town Nebraska I have never experienced even seeing the ocean.

The first excursion we took part in was white water rafting. I have a very big family so the raft...

One place, although, altered my life....

  • /*-->*/ All my life I've been looking forward to growing up and being able to travel wherever I wanted to. I would watch shows on the discovery channel and see a place that just hypnotized me and I would think, thats where I want to go. Finally I got a chance to get a taste of my traveling...

  • One of  my most interesting trips was that to Florida. I was going all by myself to visit my dad and I was about 11 years of age. I am not used to flying much, but I was excited and scared to go. It was a really big step for me to go all alone without any family having strange people tell me what...

  • Mexico shares a border with the United States and a large portion of our vast country was once a part of the Estados Unidos Mexicanos. Given our proximity, it is hard to believe that many Americans are ignorant to Mexico's enduring history, distinctive cultural makeup, and welcoming people....
