/*-->*/ All my life I've been looking forward to growing up and being able to travel wherever I wanted to. I would watch shows on the discovery channel and see a place that just hypnotized me and I would think, thats where I want to go. Finally I got a chance to get a taste of my traveling...Tags:
The summer of 2010 remains the most influential time I have ever experienced. That summer was the time I went to Kenya, Africa on a mission’s trip for thirteen days. The things I experienced there, in the slums of the Mathare Valley, are things that I cannot accurately describe...Tags:

It cost $7,000 dollars just for me to go, but my whole family spent almost a year raising money for me to go. Two weeks before the deadline came...Tags:
During the summer of 2009 I embarked on a trip, sponsored by EF Tours, exploring Southern Europe with my high schools’ German club. We visited three countries including: Germany, Italy, and Switzerland. The first stop on this trip was Frankfurt, Germany. The ride to...Tags:
Every year my family and I always go visit our relatives in sweet home Alabama. We live in Colorado which is thousands of miles away. I never get tired though of the long exhausting hours in the van with everyone warm and content as we take that road trip or the surprised expression on my...Tags:
