  •      It was a mile walk. Well, 0.9 miles exactly, if one plans to take the same walk I did, from the parking garage on the Country Club Plaza to Southmoreland Park. And what a beautiful day it was here in late June, for a brief walk through the City of Fountains. The rays of sunshine beat down on...

  • It is November 22nd, 2007: Thanksgiving Day. I am in “America Sings,” a group formed by my chorus class, along with many others from across the nation. We all came to the Big Apple for this.

  • I can not think of another teen my age who has had the opportunity of a life time to soar across the country and visit their family. Every year during Christmas my family and I fly to New York to visit our relatives. We usually spend a week doing the usual routine: see the whole family ( all 6 of...

  • It was going to be the first time I saw the Pacific Ocean.  As I sat in the small Costa Rican food store, I could barely taste the food I was eating; too much had happened in the last few days.  My friend Serena and I had traveled all the way from Manhattan, Kansas with our Spanish class to...

  • The summer of July 2011, my family and I traveled to Kenosha, Wisconsin which I named one of my favorite vacations of my life. We vacationed to Wisconsin because we are originally from there and we go every summer for two weeks to visit family and friends. I love taking this vacation because I...

  • For many years I believed I was well traveled and I understood much of the world. Now, I laugh at my previous assumption.
