  • Cincinnati to Dallas, Dallas to Frankfurt, Germany; longest day of my life. My aunt and her family had temporarily moved over to Germany and my mom worked for American Airlines, so we had the opportunity to visit. Since my mother worked for the airline we got some special benefits, like flying...

  • Spring break of 2012, my life was changed. Instead of going on a vacation to a swanky resort I spent my time in the Dominican Republic with Global Leadership Adventures doing volunteer work. Our group consisted of about 14 girls and 1 boy and we all got along tremendously, and I am still in touch...

  • Imagine sitting on a rooftop with nothing but the warm sun kissing your eyelids and a small breeze blowing through your hair. Seeing to the right a clear blue Mediterranean Sea and to the left seeing grassy mountaintops almost touching the sky. About two years ago my family and I took a Christmas...

  • Running. Most people consider it a hobby, or something that people without lives do. However, for me, and the other members of my cross country team, it's a way of life.

Alaska, the word rang in my mind over and over again...

  • The first thing you notice as you arrive in Costa Rica is all the beautiful scenery. Traveling from San Jose to our host families we drove up and down mountains on winding roads, with lush, green rainforest surrounding us and steam slowly rising from the mountains.  I stayed with my host family...

  • Through an erupting volcano, a multitude of odd night stays, and airplane delays, the time before our arrival had been a journey in itself. Although, looking back it made my trip to Uruguay even more special.  It was myself, my mother and father, and a group of about 15 others that made our way...

  • The summer 2010, I had the opportunity to go on a thirty-day, cross-country trip with Godparents Youth Organization; I went to twenty-eight states, twenty colleges, and nineteen museums and memorials. It all started with change, but not just a change in my grades, but also in my attitude. The trip...

  • The sun oozes -- a fat, juicy, shockingly scarlet puddle bleeding into the fuchsia, magenta and tangerine serenade. The cliffs regally wear this flawless sunset like a water-color cape flying behind their rocky shoulders. Every shrub, rock and organism is exquisitely placed on this luxuriously...

  •               History. Friends. Adventure. Those are the three words that come to mind when I think of my trip to the nation’s capital, WashingtonD.C. I learned more history than I have in all my school history classes combined, made friends from around the world, and had the most exhilarating...
