I went to New York during my Spring Break of my school. The weather was not cold, and not hot. Everything was perfect for us to travel. This was not my first travel to New York, but New York has so many things to see. So it was not boring at all. I always feel that energy every time I go there...Tags:

Camping has always been one of my favorite outdoor activities, and when I went camping in July this summer, it made me love it more! I went to Chamberlain, South Dakota to camp out on the Missouri River for a family vacation. Rarely does my entire family get to go out and do something since we’re...Tags:
In the summer of 2005, I finally came back to Russia for the first time since I immigrated. It had been eight years. My family had changed, my city had changed; I had changed. Instinctively, I understand that I cannot possibly live there again. Despite this, there is something profound about...Tags:
World Travel. It's pretty self-explaining... Traveling the world. But before I went to Italy my sophomore year, the world I knew consisted of my small town and the high school I attended. Traveling the world was getting in the car and driving to Wal*Mart. Then, that spring I was givin the amazing...Tags:
