  • I can not even begin to describe the excitement I had to get off of that United Airlines flight born from Chicago to Paris that Monday morning. I was tired, I smelled, and I was pretty sure I was going to have a kink in my neck for the next week, but after an entire year of planning and an eighteen...

  •  Life is a journey we all must venture upon.  There are many obstacles, enjoyments, and opportunities along our paths.  When given opportunities we must seize them and try to learn and absorb as much as possible.  When I was given the opportunity to travel to Spain, I took it.  When I took that...

  • Last year my family took a vacation to Destin, Florida. My younger sister had brought our cousin, Jeni, who is a year older than my sister, but a year younger than me. Her parents were going through a divorce and she needed to get away. My family travels a lot because I play travel soccer. We go to...

  •  Everything was packed into the mini-van; the drum set, the guitar amps, the bass amp, and the guitars. Nick got out of his truck and walked up to meet Jake and me in my driveway. “Everything packed?” Asked Nick.  “Yeah,” I said. “Thanks for the help, jerk.” Nick slapped me in the head. Still...

  • Devastation and destruction blew its way into the heart of the “Cresent City” late August of 2005, as Hurricane Katrina made her way into New Orleans. Buildings were stripped layer by layer more quickly than they were put together, and roads were washed up faster than any car had driven on them....

  • Picture the word ‘travel’ in your mind. Don’t imagine the letters themselves; envision what they mean to you personally as a concept. Once when I heard the word, I saw vast open spaces of a world unconquered. It would’ve seemed strange to me that at this point in my life, the most important trip I...

  • Spring Break of 2007, most are thinking of their upcoming Florida trip, or just preparing for a week of rest at home. I, on the other hand, was packing for a week of intense heat in the country of Guatemala. A group from my school was taking a mission trip to an orphanage in the small town of...

  • When I was 14, I took a trip to Paris, France. I had been there once before, when I was 10. The first trip wasn’t as memorable, except for the fact that it had been my first time out of the country. My second trip was meaningful, thought-provoking, and of course, fun.             We left on my...

  •   I’ve been traveling since I was a baby. My mom works for the airlines and my dad just loves to fly, so I’ve been a very lucky gal. Too bad, they like to travel differently. It was probably the summer of 2007 when my dad decided to go back to Malaysia, my step-mom’s hometown. It’s...
