  • There is nothing more thrilling than traveling to a foreign country with your best friends, seeing the ancient cities and treasures of a land steeped in history, and performing the music of the greatest composers before eager audiences. That was the remarkable situation in which I found myself the...

  •                  In the summer of 2007, I visited Durango, Mexico. I can still picture it, as if it were only yesterday. When I think about Mexico, hard working people come to mind. I had never seen people selling products in the streets. It was a shock to see such young kids working in the...

  • Hurling through the air at speeds defying logic, twisting, turning, flipping upside down, then careening down terrifying heights, screaming until your lungs burn, is not my idea of fun.  Roller coasters have never been a big pull to me.  Why would anyone want to put themselves through that on...

  • A trip mixed with laughter, and sometimes wanting to scream.  My mom and I were visiting my father in Oaklahoma who was on business.  Neither of us had flown before.  I was hesitant of flying.  I still was excited about going to a new place.  This trip I went through a lot fo bizzare things even...

The hotel was booked, our bags packed, and the car ready for the four hour drive upon the Texas roads. This would normally be the point in which I relay the pristine waters, the...

  • As I rode backwards on a taxi, I took the time to observe my surroundings. I looked to my right and out the window, it was very lush. All I could see for miles were tall trees and endless grass which looked as if someone took a fine comb and straightened each bristle into perfection. In the...

  • It wasn't the fancy New York vacation we were expecting, with extravagant restaurants and the sights, or the classic family road trip. It was a Kosher nightmare for my goyishe sister and me, who felt constantly criticized by our orthodox Jewish uncle into not spending our money. Or having fun. When...

  •          “Goodbye U.S.A. Privet Russia” was the Facebook status that I posted as I was boarding Flight Number 611 going to Austria with a connecting flight to Russia on March 19th, 2011. This status proved to hold a deeper meaning throughout my trip because I was encouraged to bid farewell to...
