  • My family has always been one that enjoys traveling, however, in all of the vacations we have taken, our trip to Spain is the most interesting adventure. The vacation started, not on July 6th, but in January, when my father started searching for long-lost family located in Northwestern Spain. After...

  • I stood, gazing about me in wonder as I absorbed the narrow streets and peered into the shadowed dwellings of a civilization long gone.  Prior to this vacation, I never would have dreamed that a piece of history as rich as Ostia Antica could have survived the ruin that time so often brings.   ...

  • It was the summer of 2007 and I had so much adrenaline pumping through me that I hadn’t slept in weeks. I, along with thirteen friends from church, had spent the previous year fund raising to help with the cost of a trip that will never be forgotten. It was the Nazarene Youth Conference of 2007....

One day a school official called my friend Malvina and I to his office. When we sat down, he asked us if we would like to represent our school at a meeting....

  • In the summer of 2008, my mother, church friends and I were going on a road trip from San Bernardino, California to Wichita, Kansas for a Lao Church Conference. It was my first time taking a long road trip, so I was stoked. The first state we visited was Arizona; it was not a very pleasant state to...

  • One of my most recent trips was to El Salvador during the summer of the year 2011.  It was just a trip to visit my family over there in El Salvador.  The trip lasted for about two weeks, and I had an amazing time just hanging out with my cousins.  Since it was a visit that we had planned...

  • Nebraska       I live to hit the ball, run the bases, and score a run for my team. Fast-pitch softball is the sport I play and in one particular summer about two years ago, the game I live to play, turned into a week of ducking for cover from thunderstorms and lightning, covering my face with...

  • Wind tangles through a flag suspended high above the central square. Red, green, and white, it wrinkles and snaps, catching the attention it deserves. A symbol of its people, it is a reminder that Cozumel, Mexico does not belong to the tourists who roam the streets. The cobbled pathways are crowded...
