         Going back to the home of my ancestors was now or never. The Philippines, my parents said, was Third World: No paved roads, No streetlights, No running water, Sweat, and Mosquitos. In other words, it was not my typical vacation. No Brandenburg Gate. No Louvre. Would the Philippines have...

    Like most teenagers, I was angry with my parents. We were flying to Kathmandu, Nepal, and then driving over the Tibetan/Chinese border to get to Mount Kailash, a sacred site of pilgramage for Buddhists, Hindus, Jains, and many others. I thought going anywhere that far in the middle of nowhere was...

    Ever since I can remember, I've always been taught to give thanks for everything I have such as food, clean water and my home because there are so many unfortunate people out there without these essentials. As a young girl I was very ignorant; not in a negative way but through my lack of...

    In a single span of 8 days, my entire perspective on life had changed. Not in the crazy, become-one-with-yourself way, but the there’s-a-completely-different-world-out-there way. When I took my first trip to Managua, Nicaragua this February, I never expected to see such rural communities only 10-20...

    During our trip to Nags Head, North Carolina, I learned a very important thing: never stay with relatives. The trip took seven hours from where we live in Clover, South Carolina, to the outer banks of North Carolina, where Nags Head is located. Not only did we almost get killed by a maniac while...

    Growing up in a family of six kids with my mom and dad, we never had the chance to go “see the sights,” so until just recently did I think traveling was just going to be a pain, why even bother.

     I always dreamed of going on an awesome family vacation. In the summer of 2005 I got my chance. Being first time cruisers on the majestic Norwegian Jewel, my family and I learned good and hard the dos and don'ts of traveling the Mediterranean in 7 days!   DO pack lightly! Dear ladies, although we...

    It was an early July morning as I groggily stumbled out of bed to head to the Charleston airport. My Mom and I waited for the rest of our church’s teen ministry to arrive so we could depart for Miami, and from Miami to Cancun. All twenty of us would then split up into two twelve-passenger vans,...
