  • The summer of 2008 was when I went to Trinidad and Tobag. I was schedueled to stay with my Aunt Jerro in Bucco for three weeks along with my grandmother. The heat there was not necessarily hotter than in the U.S., it was just a different type of heat. The first night I broke into a heat rash all...

  • My eyes slowly began to open as I finally heard the flight attendant announce, “Thank you for flying with us. We have now reached our destination, La Courña, Spain...” My stomach was filled with butterflies because I knew this would be a trip of a life time. I had the opportunity to travel to...

  •   In the past few years, I have traveled out of the country three times. Although, nothing compares to the time I spent with my closest friends over spring break my senior year. A year ago, a group of my closest friends signed up with EF tours to spend a week in Italy and Greece. Time flew by and...

  • During spring break of my sophomore year, I traveled to Ecuador with five other students from my school.  We lived with families outside of Quito for three weeks while we attended school, worked on our Spanish skills, visited popular sites in and around Quito, and just experienced a different...

  • “I’m not doing it. 100%.” Andrew declared as a wave of instinctual fear rose up his throat.  My mom was next, her voice weak with trepidation. “I’m afraid. I can’t do it.” Then, “It looks awfully steep….” My dad observed, gripped with indecision.  But I have never been one to go along with the...

  •    The summer of 2007 I took an incredible adventure across the states to a city called Chicago.  I spent nine days and ten nights in the windy city.    I was dating a guy at the time and had been with him for about eight months and he threw out the idea of going to Chicago together, with his mom...

  • My family and I decided to go to Colorado for spring break this year. Why Colorado? Beats me, but it sure was fun! When I first found out about it, I was super excited because I had only ever been in Minnesota or New York, so needless to say Colorado was something new! But shortly after finding...

  • As I sit in a rental car and gaze upon Boston’s coastline, I admire the breathtaking Atlantic Ocean that is almost as serene and blue as the clear sky above it. On the other side of the road, I see trees and buildings, some been built over 100 years ago, some modern. This city is an enormous...

  • Last summer I found myself on a plane with my two cousins and our aunt heading for Greece. Although my cousins and I were born in America, our parents (and so on and so forth) were born in Greece.  This was the first time I would be going to Greece in seven or so years.  After settling down in my...
