  • July of 2014. Nashville, Tennessee. My senior year. This was going to be one of the last vacations I take with my parents, so we decided that we should take a 2 week vacation and explore every corner of Tennessee! As intimidating as a consecutive 336 hour trip sounded with just my parents, my...

  • It was day three on our jam packed New York trip, and our out of shape Mississippi bodies were starting to feel the strain of walking, walking, walking. The heat was getting to me through my jacket; it was January for crying out loud New York was supposed to be a snow filled city during then! We...

However, they would be surprised to know that although it’s a small city of 30,000 people, it has unique areas that are worth a trip, such as the Blue Water Bridge, Fort Gratiot Lighthouse, Vantage Point, and...

  • Last May, my grandparents and I took a week-long vacation to Kauai, Hawaii.  All I can say about this trip is that it was amazing and I will always remember it vividly as my all time favorite vacation. To put lightly, it was unforgettable. I pretty much fell in love with the Garden Island and if I...

  •           Once every three years, my family and I take an 18 hour plane ride to India. As a child, I used to look forward to those trips since they would give me the chance to play with my cousins and be spoiled by my grandparents. All of those trips were clouded by the innocence that comes with...

  • "We might have a problem." This was a phrase that our group of high school students certainly did not want to hear on that beautiful day in Kenya, Africa in April of 2012. We were in Africa on a mission trip, and we had just returned to where we were staying after a long day of visiting...

  • A few years back, my family went to Arizona and experienced one of the best vacations ever.  Our itinerary consisted of a ten-day trek that began in Phoenix and included destinations in Sedona, Arizona, the Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, Nevada and Los Angeles, California.  As we left the airport in...
