  • It was my junior year in high school and my school (Brandon High School) have Washington trip every year for students in AP English III or AP U.S. History or AP U.S. Government. The trip is planned by Mrs. Blankenship. In the beginning of January 2012, I explored Washington, D.C., Philadelphia,...

  • There is a Yiddish saying "Man plans, God laughs". Itineraries can attempt to plan a trip- but how often does the journey go the way we planned?
