  • Virginia Beach Relaxation In the year 2009, my family and I traveled to Virginia Beach in search for some relaxation and to find peace from the home life. The travel was fast and simple using our GPS from Pittsburgh,Pa to Norfolk, Virginia. When we finally arrived to our destination, The Beach...

  • It’s a strange feeling going back to one’s culture and entering the realms of the past.  An unfamiliar setting, where everything you see, smell, and touch, is a new and bewildering world.  For me, my trip to Japan  was so much more than just a “good time.” It was a way to get back in touch with my...

  • My journey back to the state of my birth, Washington State, provided adventures of all sorts, that I will never forget.

  • Kansas City, Missouri: A city just about 4 hours drive from the incredible Gateway Arch in St Louis. A true city of The West.  I had never been to the state of Missouri prior to this visit in the summer of 2010. The drive there was just as the books and movies described it. Nothing, but long...

  •   “Chum reap sour” (Hello), all the smiling faces repeated over and over again as they bowed their heads with their hands clasped together as if in prayer, the traditional style of greeting in Cambodia. The children watched expectantly as 29 American students and their 8 adult chaperones...

  •               When I was sixteen years old, my grandmother took me and my siblings to Hawaii for my eldest sister’s graduation present. Before we left I was optimistic at how relaxing it will be just sitting by the beach all day. We resided at the Embassy Suites on Wakiki Beach Walk. The location...
