    The locals call the place Firenze. I call it a masterpiece. Florence was the first place I actually travelled to as a tourist rather than a kid complaining about having to go with his family. We stayed a total of 4 days in the heart of the European Renaissance, enjoying the most of it. Our group...

So last year, when my band director invited me to travel with the Arizona Ambassadors of Music to seven countries over sixteen days, I was ecstatic.

    Sometimes I close my eyes trying to imagine the irregularly shaped rectangle of sky my eyes would encounter as I lay my head back on the cool steps leading up to the roof. The dust was nothing compared to the view of the sky, so close it threatened to blind me. What I remember most about Delhi is...

    Riding the subway is often a stressful experience, especially in a foreign country.

    During April of 2006, I applied for and was accepted to participate in an international trip. I was afforded the opportunity to go to Istanbul, Turkey, where I had an extraordinary experience. I had to submit a transcript, two letters of recommendation, and two essays to be considered as a...

    Traveling to a foreign country opened my eyes to many opportunities I would never experience today in the U.S. As a group from the University of Georgia Young Scholars' Program, we traveled to Costa Rica and learned the dos and don'ts, we saw sights so extraordinary and breathtaking and we feasted...
