  • Vast history, aged architecture, and sexy accents; why wouldn’t someone want to go to London, England? My mind reeled as I looked out the airplane window for the fifth time, gaping at the setting sun. A seven hour trip to the country of my dreams, yet it was all worth it. Singing with my friend,...

  • About a year ago, my family packed up the car and headed north from our hometown in West Michigan.  We were going up to Torch Lake.  And we were pumped. See, car rides for us are half the fun!  It’s not all about the vacation itself.  Amazing memories are built on the journey to your location as...

  •           This June 2011, I went on a mission trip to Baltimore, Maryland.  This was quite possibly the most eye-opening experience of my young life.  Not only does Baltimore have a lot to offer in the tourism department, but this city houses some of the kindest individuals I have ever met.  I...

  • One lazy afternoon in June I was moping around my house in Central Florida, trying to escape the blazing 100 degree summer heat. Trying to find a cure for my chronic boredom, I heard my mother making an announcement. She’d been talking about how she wanted to go up north to visit some relatives,...

  •       Most people have seen something on Haiti, with an earthquake recently hitting there not too long ago, but not many people have had the experience of going there themselves. Not only that, but not many people of 17 years of age. That was my case, a seventeen year old boy who felt a need to...

  • Yorkshire, England: home of roman ruins, heather blanketed dales and moors, manor houses, quaint villages and everything else that is quintessentially British. But giant birds? Let me explain. On our first real day of vacation, my family practically skipped out to our faithful rent-a-car only to...

  •  Ich liebe dich.  That may or may not mean anything to you, but to those who speak German it means ‘I love you.’  This summer, I had the opportunity to travel as a People to People Student Ambassador to several European countries where I was able to explore their histories, embrace their culture,...

  • In the summer of 2006, Aunt Kathy and Uncle Bob introduced Mom and I to the mountains.  Our vacation brought me closer to not only my aunt and uncle, but to nature as well.  My experiences inspired in me a deep appreciation for nature’s beauty and importance.  Arriving in Vail, Colorado was like...
