  • Family vacations will always hold a special place in my heart. Even though the trips stretch my family’s budget close to the limit, my father insists we travel somewhere interesting every year. Even though I’m only seventeen I have been to many great places in my short life including Disney World,...

  • Summer. The time that everyone reunites with their families, gets married, or goes on a family vacation. My trip last summer helped me realize what vacationing really is. Before he passed I was my dad's only child, unfortunately due to infantile amnesia's natural course up to this day I can not...

  • Three countries, thirty-four states, twenty thousand miles, eight people, fourteen months and one RV. It was the trip of a lifetime! It was a time of learning new things and letting go of old things, a time of adventure and a time of difficulty. Not many people can boast of having friends in...

  • This summer's end, I was invited to join into the life and glamour of two most fabulous cities of the west coast - Los Angeles, California and Las Vegas, Nevada. When I first heard of the two cities, two words came to my mind - luxury and excitement. I was excited to join the millions of people in...

My dad is a Marine and he got stationed at Patch Barracks, which is one of three American army bases in the area.   We traveled a lot in those three years. We were regular tourists, going...
