  • In April 2012, I had the chance to travel to Italy for nine days and I seized that opportunity.  The time that I spent in Italy traveling all over from Venice to Florence to Pompeii, was one of the best times of my life.  Italy is full of so much culture and history.                 I traveled...

  •   I do not travel often. My dad doesn’t know what “vacation” means. So when the opportunity to go on a trip to our nation’s capitol came in the mail, I was ecstatic. I was a little nervous about being away from home without knowing anyone, but I knew that I had earned my spot in the National Youth...

  •  June 28th I left for my desired Make-A-Wish vacation to Washington with my family. I landed in Seattle and stayed in a grand hotel for the first day that my family normally never would have been able to afford. Walking around Seattle was amazing, seeing all the tall buildings that I don't get to...

  • I stood in front of that small fence that was only keeping the children and me apart. Shocking. No, a word that means much more than shocking. Horrifying? Terrifying?

  • The anticipation as I waited for my friend’s red Mazda to come pick me up was taking its toll on me. I was pacing back and forth in my living room. The only thought going through my head was that I would be snowboarding in the Olympic town of Park City in less than 72 hours. Once my friend...

  •                    There’s one place on earth that I can escape to; a place where my troubles slip away.  It’s of a place where the streets are never quiet, the smell that makes you hungry never goes away, and the people that are frantically walking the streets alongside of me, are only trying to...

  • Snap! I had been carrying a bucket over my head when the unnerving sound interrupted my train of thought. The sound was the straining and stretching of muscle in my ankle as I tripped over a pile of rocks in Nicaragua. Did I really just do that? Quick, I need to think of a cooler story before...

  • This spring for the first time in my life I went to Lake Tahoe and it was worth waiting sixteen years for. Although the trip began on a sour note it was definitely the best family vacation I have ever been on. When we finally got to the David Wally’s Hot Spring Resort (after getting lost and...
