  •    All my classmates attending were gathered in front of the school, everyone with their luggage at hand.  It was 5:30 in the morning; we needed to depart before the campus crowded with high school students.  I arrived after my friends, who were chatting about what they packed.  Our teachers...

  • It was day three on our jam packed New York trip, and our out of shape Mississippi bodies were starting to feel the strain of walking, walking, walking. The heat was getting to me through my jacket; it was January for crying out loud New York was supposed to be a snow filled city during then! We...

  •  June 28th I left for my desired Make-A-Wish vacation to Washington with my family. I landed in Seattle and stayed in a grand hotel for the first day that my family normally never would have been able to afford. Walking around Seattle was amazing, seeing all the tall buildings that I don't get to...

  • Though I am from Afghanistan, I never spent enough time there. Ath the age of three I had to migrate to Pakistan in fear of getting killed by the Taliban. My father and older brother were both killed there so we had to move out. After about fifteen years, I finally went back. In the summer 2007...

  •         This past June, I had the amazing opportunity to travel to the largest Bahamian island, Andros Island, on a school trip. With a population of only about eight-thousand people, the beauty of nature really presented itself on this island and in the reefs, looking almost untouched by humans...

The kind that still has their windows rolled down in forty-degree weather, stops for deer at least once a week, and lives in a town that has as many bars as it does churches. We're known as Michiganders, and every year we join the Yoopers by making our routine...

  • March 2008. The country of Costa Rica welcomes 20 Middle School kids. It’s hot and sticky; we all automatically start sweating, our previously cold bodies defrosting our “winter coats”, hair sticking to the sides of our faces. All the students who went to Costa Rica were encouraged to keep a...

  • In January 2011, my family and I decided to take a vacation and go on a cruise. My sister, Morgan, and I were so excited!  We would be able to be in 80-degree weather while everyone else was stuck in the 5 feet of snow we had! As the week finally rolled around before we got to leave, it started...

  • In the spring of 2012, my junior year of high school, I had the pleasure to go on a Royal Caribbean cruse to the Bahamas. It was for four sun filled days spent out near the beautiful clear ocean and three nights bursting with laughter and spontaneous singing. On our cruise we were able to visit a...

  • My name is Kory, and I am from a small town in Michigan.  Last year my Spanish class got the opportunity to go to Spain with EF Tours.  This was the first time that I went on a trip without my family, and to a foreign country! We flew out of Detroit on a German airline called Lufthansa.  This was...
