  •  I never got to live with both of my parents under the same roof at the same time. It was always with one or the other. My parents separated when I was only a year and a half year old. I lived with my father and my step mom until I turned fourteen years old and moved in with my mother in America...

  • It was December.  My family was going to visit Montana for Christmas, where we would stay in a condominium and ski for a week.  We had decided to take the train for a new experience.  Unfortunately, that experience was only the first of our Montana mishaps. The Amtrak pulled in to our station at...

  • During the summer of 2011, I went on a family trip to Cambodia. It was a really fun experience, even if it did have its cons. The two main reasons why we took this trip in the first place was 1) We haven't been there in a long time, and 2) My aunt was getting married! The plane ride was...

  • What began as a visit to seldom-seen family in Austin quickly transformed into the most inspiring experience of my life. In Southern California, we don’t have this so called “nature”—not like they do in Texas. If it exists, it has successfully persisted in hiding from me for the past seventeen...

  • Anxiously, I await for the sun to peak over the waves. As the sun rises, so do all the animals. Dolphins are gliding and jumping up through the gleaming waves. Hundreds of jellyfish are washed up on the shore from the tide of the night. Scattered all over the beach are all different color and sized...

  • Junior year of school was finally over and I couldn`t find enough words to express how happy I was. Not that I didn`t love going to school with all my friends, but I coudn`t wait for the summer vacation to start. As soon as the last school bell rang, I ran through the door, hopped on the train and...

  • I traveled without the luxury of staying at a five star hotel. A hot shower was jumping in a lake 3000ft above sea level, a comfy bed was under a tent, gazing up at the clear night sky, and bathroom tissue was the foliage around me. To call this travel would be an understatement. A more appropriate...

  •  A pungent, gut-retching stench assaulted my nose as I walked into the hazy sunlight, suitcases clutched tightly in my hand. The flight from LAX to New Delhi, India had left my brain a bit fuzzy, but the excitement of the chance to get to serve an Orphanage in India was crystal clear in my mind....

  • This summer, my mom told me we were going and vacation and I could not wait. Then she told me that we were going to be taking a 22-hour road trip to Wyoming to see Yellowstone National Park. All my excitement came to a crashing end.   The last thing a 17-year-old wants to do it goes see trees in...
