August 13th, 2006, a picturesque island day, perfect for our family reunion. Think beautiful palm trees, a cerulean sky, white sand, a colossal cruise ship, and my whole family together for the last island day to end a spectacular week of fun, sand, and delectable drinks with pink umbrellas in them...Tags:
When I was only twelve, my family and I, took a trip to South Africa. This trip changes my view on the way that I act, in many ways. In the United States, our families can provide for us.

Scared, nervous, excited, and a little fearful. Everything was so surreal and I couldn't wrap my head around it all. It was actually happening, I was finally going to Israel on my very first missions trip. I would be gone from my family for 14 days, the longest I have ever been away, and to top...Tags:
Each year my father, mother and I go on vacation. Sometimes it is to the beach, sometimes it is to visit my oldest brother in Arizona, but this family vacation was dedicated to visiting the colleges I was most interested in.

So when I first heard the news that our family vacation to Florida was canceled, due to the oil spill, I was thrilled that our consolation trip was Michigan. Oh Michigan, the place where you can be...Tags:
It was my first time in London, and we were venturing through the city, taking in all the sites and culture around me. The trip was my Christmas present from my father and we were absolutely enchanted as we walked around the city. From Hyde Park to Piccadilly Circus, we absorbed the history, the...Tags:
Imagine being stranded in an island- without a comfortable and cozy bed to sleep in. While the rain soaks you up, your stomach growls, crying out for food. What’s the first thought that comes to your mind? Is it your grandma’s unique cooking or the warm hugs from your love ones? Well this special...Tags:
I have a special love for that place, even to this day. Even though it was a thousand miles and an ocean away from my house, I felt at home. I discovered that if I could endure all that I had those ten days and still find happiness, maybe Madrid had something special to offer. As I boarded the...Tags:
