  •     Whenever I think of travel to Europe, fantasies flit into my mind of riding off on motor scooters for harrowing European adventures (à la Passport to Paris, a Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen classic). Of course, Hollywood has a tendency to stray from reality a bit—but a girl can dream. These...

  • Only a short few days ago, I was given the opportunity to partake in one of the most memorable experiences of my life. About three weeks ago, I was called into the principal's office where he explained to me the upcoming trip. To commemorate Captain Vancouver's 250th birthday, a Canadian Navy...

  •  Founded in 1983  Most teenagers are busy hanging out with friends, going to the beach, vacationing, and getting jobs during their summer vacation. I participate in these things as well but, in addition, I have been lucky enough to meet and work with people like Dizz. Dizz is a person unlike any...

  • It was wet. It was hot. It was pure and utter perfection. I cracked my window a centimeter, stuck my nose out, and inhaled as enthusiastically as a dog. Hawaii I thought as I closed my eyes and smiled. When my father had first proposed the idea of this vacation the previous Christmas I had been...

  • After a long night of packing and deciding if I would need jackets and jeans or shorts and tank tops, I was ready to board the Carnival Fantasy for a 7 day cruise that we took during January 2010. The only thing I was not ready for was the long 13 hour drive down to Mobile, Alabama. We arrived at...

  • This summer, June to be exact, I took a trip with my grandmother to Indiana. This was no vacation, but a time to say goodbye. We were visiting my great grandmother, Wilma. This Wilma is no ordinary grandmother, but a beautiful soul that is only afraid of dying. She is 89 years old and doesn’t...

  • As soon as we stepped off the tour bus, our guide apologized. "We don't normally have weather like this," He said. "It's usually so foggy you can't see four feet in front of you." The forty of us, all high school students from Florida and Ohio on our People to People student ambassador trip,...

  • My dad and I had decided to stay behind an extra day. His travel points got us a free hotel in Rome and we slept in style. The wide soft bed was certainly nice after a week’s worth of budget inns complete with a limited hot water supply; however, what was lacking in our five star accommodations...

  • I was seven.  I remember the flight; it lasted at least seven hours.  I was tired, but excited all at once.  I remember stepping onto the ground and smelling the air.  It smelled so different from my home in America.  It smelled good, free, fascinating, and spirited.  Italy was a glorious place...
