  •             I circle around the slab of rock that has been placed inside of walls and is now presented under a light for all to see. An artist made this marble special; he gave it a face, but more importantly an expression. As I slowly turn, the rocks face changes and I start to see a man. "The...

  •   */ As cliché as the location may be, there is nothing cliché about Paris, France. Traveling there with my family a couple years ago, I was immersed in what makes the french lifestyle so famous. I saw for the first time what made so many American writers and artists travel to the iconic city...

  • Just above the horizon you can see the spike point of the new York city tower. This tower is none other than the Empire State building. This Famous Sky scraper is a magician of its own. A single look up the side of it will make you dizzy, make you feel as if the sky is tilting, make you feel like...

  • Sunshiny Summertime .  Strolling casually along the warm water’s edge, the gritty sand gently grabs my feet.  Reflecting off the waves rolling onto the shoreline, the sun illuminates shells in the shallow surf.

When I was about 14 years old, me, my family, and my boss, all traveled to the Washington Mountains. This was an extremely rough, yet...

  • As a five-year-old, I remember sitting on the salty shore and contemplating whether or not my friends could have been right when they told me that if I shoveled long and hard, I would hit China.  Now, I have hollowed out some pretty great holes in my life, and not once has my shovel hit anything...

  • At sixteen years old, I can’t say I’m an expert traveler.  But I can say that I’ve gone a trip that left an excellent story to tell. It was a week before Thanksgiving, and I was sitting in the Boise Idaho airport with my stepmom waiting for my flight to arrive. I was going to spend the holiday in...

  • Alarm buzzes. Groggy eyes only opened by force. Sunlight creeps in, the time has come.  Bags packed, barely zipped. Awake enough to realize this cycle will repeat in twenty-four hours. Getting up for anything, much less a vacation, is a chore in itself. Going to a hotel and waiting a whole day...
