  •   It was as if Christmas morning was just hours away, and I would miss it if I drifted off to sleep. The next morning, as I loaded up the RV with my brother and sister, I felt as if the RV was symbolic of a time machine- taking me back to my childhood.

As I headed straight towards the first long queue in my way, I prepared mentally for my long 30 hour...

  •   About two years ago, my family and I went on my very first camping trip in California. Not only was this camping experience an outstanding adventure, it was also a trip that provided me with an acceptable amount of knowledge on general survival skills. We reached our camp site at 2 a.m and...

  • My days were filled with car horns beeping, cows mooing, chutney music blaring, and alluring scents of food. Standing on the veranda, I look straight and see the East Berbice-Corentyne River and the country of Suriname. I look to my left and see different sized cows roaming the streets; to my right...

  • Imagine riding in a covered wagon for four days with classmates. For me this was a true pioneer experience.
