  • I enjoyed Bermuda when I was younger, my first time going. However; I feel I was going more for family, and didn't really tap into the luxuries and the peace that the island offers. So, I am going in July of 2012 for my graduation gift. I am excited. Bermuda is an island for pure relaxation and...

  • Its hard to believe that it was just over seven years ago that I first set foot on Acadia National Park. Now, five years later, I returned to that land. But to me, it wasn’t just another part of the country that I was standing on. It was more like another part of my imagination. I had seen plenty...

  • In the winter of 2007, my family and I ventured to the vast expanse of land known as Argentina, located in South America alongside Brazil. My father is from Rosario, a small rural town approximately an hour away from Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina. For the first time, I was able to re-...

  • There is no place like home, and the fact that I do not possess ruby red slippers was no barrier to my repeating that phrase as often as possible during my trip to India this summer.

  • During the summer of 2007, I took my first trip ever to California. I was so excited the night before that I could hardly even sleep! It would be my first time to ride an airplane and I was very anxious. When I got on the airplane, my stomach began to feel queasy as the anxiety grew. As we began to...

  • As the sash of an authentic Japanese kimono was carefully being tied around my waist, I reminded myself to appreciate the extreme rarity of the moment. It was approximately four o'clock in the morning, Eastern Standard Time. Only, at this particular moment, Eastern Standard Time did not apply to me...
