  • We left the hustle and bustle of a soaked Boston in mid-afternoon. The rainy day began to decline over the Charles River, yet the collegiate crew teams rowed endlessly on. The GPS, in a very uncomputerlike manner, took us on a meandering path across Massachusetts. Instead of taking us along the...

  • My travel journal is more of a travel story book. The day I was accepted into People to People Student Ambassador program and my parents agreed to let me go, was the day that changed my life. My adventure started at San Francisco International airport at one A.M. in a dreary morning and a hint of...

  •          Two summers ago, my mother and father decided to go on a road trip to Franklin, Tennessee to visit some family friends. I desperately did not want to go on the 10 hour drive, in my mother's small car, seated next to my 19 year old, older brother. A few weeks before we set off for the trip...

  • “Mitakuye oyasin” which translates to “all my relations”, is a Lakota Sioux term. However the term goes more in depth. It means all my relations with all humans, animals, plants, rocks, forces of nature, and elements. Everything is connected, and nothing exists in isolation. I’ve weaved that idea...

Stupid people…” The taxi driver screeched at the seemingly unfazed pedestrians.  The mobs of foot trekkers continued to swarm around and among the passing taxis, ignoring the blaring horn and angry shouts.

  • Touch of the Tropics is a Touch of Life                                                   After a 5 hour flight from New Mexico to Costa Rica, my group and I landed in San Jose ready to embark on our quest of Touch of the Tropics, that EF tours has so kindly laid out for us. We retired to...

  • "Turn it off." "No." "Fernando!" The stereo blared. "Dad." Finally, Mom took pity on me and turned the music off. It was going on our 11th hour in the van, and I was learning to hate Abba. It was torture to careen down the highway in a monstrous van with nothing but the strains of 'the...

  •      My family and I are always one to travel. We've been to almost every state. My favorite state would have to be California. It was so calm and carefree, unlike New York, which is where I am from. I find it weird when you go to some place out of state and the lifestyles are completely...

  • In the month before school let out, my art teacher announced one last field trip to end the year right. The trip was for the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C., and even though I am inclined not to go look at boring pictures tacked up onto dusty walls in dimly lit rooms, I went anyways so I...

  • Las Vegas: City of Entertainment? It most definitely is. One may say that a 15 year old in Las Vegas is hardly appropriate, but I beg to differ. Las Vegas has recently become more family-oriented, and my trip there was the most beautiful thing I have ever experienced. Seven hundred and fifty words...
