  • Crashing waves, hovering seagulls stalking on tourists' bags of chips, the roar of the Boardwalk Bullet, and beetle boats that crawl swiftly through the active ocean: these are the ingredients of a perfect vacation. I've been to Kemah ten or so times, but if it were up to me, it'd be infinite...

  • Edmonds, Washington is a small city just north of Seattle that's nestled on the Puget Sound. Visitors on the beach can watch cruise ships sail to Alaska, ferry boats going back and forth from Edmonds to Kingston, and during the spring and summer you can watch large pods of whales travel straight...

  • In the dark of the morning, my mother barges into my room, yells in a raspy morning voice for us to wake up. We're ready to go in last night's clothes, disheveled and convince we aren't going to run into celebrities, it doesn't matter if I have a taco stain in a embarrassing spot, we're going to...

  • If you come to Fairhaven in the summer, stay for the Sunday farmer’s market. You might see hula hoopers, local music groups, and henna tattoo artists all having fun in the sun, but most importantly, the farmer’s market has incredibly friendly people, and fresh, local food (see photo).

Although she had waxed poetic about the narrow country roads described in her ladies’ book club favorite “Under the Tuscan Sun”, she was a lot less enthusiastic...

  • As the shore approached, I reflected on the reason of my being here in Mexico. A group of 11 from my home church of House on the Rock had gathered on the shared goal of spreading God's love on foreign soil. We had been received by two missionaries who had been settled there for quite some time...

  •      Who knew that traveling with fifty-two pepole would be so much fun? Normally, my family and I take at least a coupole trips around the world a year, but with only about eight bodies. Just this past summer, we more than doubled that amount of people when we traveled to Vietnam. This was not my...

  • Towering steel skyscraper, bustling feet, and churning engines of hundred of cars surrounded me as I walked around in the Chaoyang District of Beijing, also known as the new, commercialized part of this metropolis. The first few days in Beijing were spent touring around the city and shopping...

  • I did not realize that when I signed up for my AP Environmental class it was going to change my families’ whole view of the world I live in. Not just because we learn how the technologies that we are creating are causing pollution, or that the CFC's of the "old" refrigerators and microwaves that...

  • I am from Hawaii. No, I do not go to the beach everyday. No, I do not live in a grass hut. And, no, not everyone here can do the hula. Those are the answers to a few of the questions I get asked whenever I tell someone where I live. I get asked many questions about my home. However, the one...
