  •   In March of my Sophomore Year, I spent two weeks on a Humanities trip with my school abroad. We visited five countries in two weeks, Germany, England, CzechRepublic, France, and Switzerland. We went to tons of museums, restaurants, and castles, and it was a life changing experience. Experiencing...

  • My trip to St. Louis in 2006 has been one of the most fun vacations I’ve ever experienced. Even though I grew up here, being home of the arch and the St. Louis Cardinals meant more to me on this trip back. Everything took on a different meaning and meant so much more, now living in a different city...

  • I look at the myriad of dishes slowly revolving around the table as they sit, waiting to be consumed, on the Lazy Susan.  A plate of fried Cicadas passes by me every few minutes.  The first time I see it, I'm disgusted at the thought of eating it.  A few others at the table have already tried the...

  •   The Molding Cliff The cool mist of the rushing water sprayed my face as I stood and enjoyed the scenic beauty.  I looked ahead to see nothing but millions of gallons of water falling down a steep cliff. To my left and to my right, thousands of people crowded around the rail to see the...

  • In January 2012, eight members of Rock Canyon Key Club hustled to tape the last box shut, zip their suitcases, buy more bug spray, and board the plane to Costa Rica.

First of all, you may ask "Who are 'Nature Girl' and 'Nature Boy'?"  I personally am Nature Girl,...

  • Sometimes, short moments in someone’s life can influence them forever.             It was my first Giants away game. It was a battle between the Giants and the Colts at Indianapolis: a sibling rivalry between Eli and Peyton Manning. I wished for Eli to win, not only because he was a Giant, but...

  • I had imagined it so clearly. Each evening, my Montpelier family would all sit around a table outside on a terrace. The table would be set with the first course -- “ cantaloupe with ham, a tomato and mozzarella salad, or maybe even some French bread with fois gras. We would sit out there and chat...

  • Just over a week ago, I went on my third annual visit to my best friend.  A few years ago, her family moved to Port Townsend, Washington.  It's been hard not having her just down the street; but my trips to see her have always been a blast. I awoke early on July 8, 2012, and gathered my bags...

  •   In the summer of 2007, I took a mission trip to Tijuana, Mexico with my church youth group. Before I went on this trip, I talked to my friends and they all said that Mexico was pretty and that Tijuana was a lot of fun. I was starting to get excited about Tijuana. I was nervous about it at the...
