If chance has ever taken you on an adventure, you would know how Jones's feels, speeding home towards the sunlight. You are a changed person, your view of the world is a bit less skewed from experiencing just...

  • Visiting Europe was the most amazing experience I have ever had.  Going to Madrid and Barcelona, Spain was absolutely fantastic!  There is so much to see and tons of things to do in both cities.  I went with the Spanish classes at my high school, and we went on tour with a company called EF Tours...

  • There are certain moments in life where we wish we could pause and play over and over again for the rest of our lives. In my seventeen years of living, I finally found the true happiness and bliss that comes in accordance with family. The bond I shared with my mother's side of the family this past...

  • Over the summer of 2008, I decided to join my cousins in their trip to Japan. I must describe my trip in 3 words: adventurous, amazing, and appreciative. One of my cousins had been there before, so instead of following a tour guide, we roamed under the city lights of Japan on our own.            ...

  •               “¡Cuidado! ¡Cuidado!” my broken Spanish caused a grin to erupt on Lupe’s face. The hot plethora of mushy rice began to dribble out of the corners of her smile. I tried to wipe her face clean of the goo, but my apologetic expression and humorous warnings only entertained her further....

  •  Last summer, we decided to visit Monticello, the home of Thomas Jefferson. Packing all of our suitcases into our car, we headed east toward Charlottesville, Virginia, the town nearest Jefferson’s estate. When we arrived, we walked up the hill to the Visitor’s Center where we bought tickets for the...

  • In July 2009 my mom and I traveled to Oaxaca, Mexico to attend a Spanish Language Institute. We were traveling with a fun group and I have so many photos of our experiences (see http://www.edweb.csus.edu/bmed/mexico/). We shared lots of experiences with our new friends, but one thing my mom and I...

  • My family took an incredible trip to Berlin, Krakow, Budapest, Vienna, and Prague over just 11 days in Spring 2011. Much can be said about a trip to the former Eastern bloc: eye-opening, at times dark and dreary, and “significant.”  First stop: Berlin, the heart of strife between East and West...
