  • I was asked by my grandmother to go to Virginia for a camping trip. Not wanting to hurt her feelings, I told her yes. On several occasions I have been on a trip with my grandmother and there always seems to be a pattern every time with the beginning of the trip. This time I spent the night over my...

  • While planning our family's summer trip, my mom and I decided that it would be fun to do something new and exciting.  Instead of doing our standard "fly to San Diego and drive to Oceanside to see our family" trip, we came up with the idea of driving from San Francisco to Oceanside.  The catalyst...

  • By the time we got to the top of the trail and mountain, it was well worth the hour and a half hike up. There was a beautiful, breath taking lake at the top called Lake McCullough. This all started because my dad had discovered it from another trail but did not go up it. So we all thought we...

  • On Spring Break in the year 2009 my family and I took a vacation down to Grand Cayman to escape the frigid spring weather in Bozeman, Montana. This was our second visit to the island in the time span of two years. I guess we just couldn’t get enough of the crystal clear Caribbean Sea or the...

  •   I bet you can’t guess what I got for my eighteenth birthday present?  Well, I do not want to keep you guessing so I will just tell you.  My aunt gave me my very own trip to Europe for my birthday.  I even got to pick the locations, which ended up being Paris, Milan, Florence, and Rome.  I can’t...

It was for my sisters graduation present so all four of us girls got to go on this enduring trip. It started...

  • "You can see to the border of New Mexico," Dad said as he talked me into going hiking with him.  "I used to go out there all the time. It's my favorite place in the world." At first, I must admit, I wasn't too excited about going to the Witchita Mountains that day. I'd been there before, but...

  • The journey of a lifetime. The breathtaking scene of the rocky mountains painting jagged peaks across the horizon. Experiencing John Denver’s “rocky mountain high” for the first time. This was not a vacation; it was a week-long journey at the J. Kyle Braid Leadership Ranch in Villa Grove, Colorado...

  •       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...

  •   Last winter, I spent my vacation from school in Rome with my boyfriend's family.  I was incredibly excited to go and had been counting down the days until departure for months.   On December 23, 2010, we left on a MacArthur Airport flight to the outskirts of Rome.   The eight-hour plane-...
