  • I guess you could say my obsession with Johnny Depp began the day Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl came to theaters.  After seeing Mr. Depp play the rogue but charming Captain Jack Sparrow I was hooked.  So it was no surprise that when I heard there was going to be a second and...

  • Curled up in a beach chair, I hunt the myriad of specks for a streak. Flanked by two best friends, all fighting for a piece of the blanket, I search for luck in the Shenandoah sky -- a shooting star. To a flat-lander (dubbed so by mountain-folk), shooting for the stars involves a high probability...

  • The trip started with a day in San Diego, California before boarding buses to cross the border into Mexico. Once we crossed the border, the change of scenery was immediate and shocking.

As soon as we got on the Carnival Imagination, we went up to the pool deck to check out the pool and enjoy the music. The food was delicious and we could tell that we were going to have a ton of fun...

  • My family takes an annual vacation down to Clearwater, Florida all seventeen years of my life. My mother, father, sister, and I visit the Clearwater beach and stay in the nearby town Holliday for ten days each spring, to not only escape the chill of Ohio during Spring Break, but to see my...

  • All my life I’ve been curious to travel and to have fun, to experience life at its most precious and timeless moments. Last summer certainly did not start off as great as I’d hoped it would be.

  •  Unlike North America, Europe does not labor under the constraints of polite society.  The European approach to life is simple, straightforward, and natural.  This summer, the American Music Abroad took young musicians to play in different countries.  While on the trip through various parts of...

  • I gingerly lower my worn brown boots into the gently rocking boat and duck my head beneath the bright yellow tin roof. I hear giggles and excited squeals as my group begins to slowly move away from the dock. I glance out the window and I’m greeted with the playful face of the decorative dragon...
