  • The distinctive memory is in my head like it was yesterday… tears of joy flooding my aunts’ faces while seeing their nieces and nephews for the first time. Having any sort of emotion after 24 hours of flying and layovers was on the verge of impossible, but I instantly knew after stepping off that...

  • From the moment I know the trip has been planned, my mind anticipates the relaxation, and when I see the low, aquamarine median wall out of the car window on U.S. 1, I know I’m close. Salt water creeks emerge on either side of the road, and soon after, the bay is visible. Driving through Key Largo...

  • There is a type of love I’ve felt before that can be best described as a bit painful. It’s a melancholy kind of love that I feel only when I have passion and devotion for the thing I love. It feels like I can never be worthy enough for this thing that I love but that I should spend my whole life...

  • Icy air stung as the weight of panniers propelled my bicycle downwards. The steep road twisted and turned until the sign boldly proclaiming: “Roger’s Pass/ Continental Divide/ Elevation 5,610” faded into a distant pinpoint. My wet clothing was of no aid, having just crawled from a tent following a...

  • March of 2012 My school took a group of students and parents on a trip to Italy where ancient history loomed. We all signed up on EF Tours and had an amazing guide named Rita. The tour schedules everything for you so all you have to do is pack and be at the airport on time. The tour will place...

  • Oregon for me was the adventure of a life time. The west coast is filled with the most beautiful rock sculptures and amazing people. Going there was the most relaxing thing I could have ever done for myself. I got a summer job last year just to pay for my 600 dollar plane ticket, and it was worth...

  • There’s something about the American West that speaks to all of our hearts. Its mystique and unruliness calls to our national values of independence and self-determination. Some hear it in the thundering tides of the Pacific Ocean, others in the endless solitude of the Great Plains. My father hears...
