  •     The Ojai Valley is surrounded by mountains and hills and the small town lies among the orange and avocado orchards that surround it. Not too far to wake up for an early morning surf on the beaches of Ventura, but also able to ride up into the mountains to catch a gorgeous sunset with all...

  • It was a typical fall day in 2008. My Chemistry class had just completed a lab when the next thing Ms. Fuller asked was if any of us would be interested in taking an educational tour to New Zealand and Australia. I thought to myself, did she ask what I think she asked? I could not wait talk to my...

  • My trip to Mexico with Amor Ministries was a challenging but definitely a worthwhile experience.  It taught me the value of manual labor, the rewards of doing something selflessly for others, and the importance of making connections with people that will last a lifetime.  Over spring break in 2007...

  •       As I flew above the ocean blue water,my mind began to wonder. I realized how big the world was, and how small I am in this world.

  • I climbed onto the moon; I had been sick early in the day, but I still trudged up the sand dunes, climbing steadily in search of the perfect view of the sunset. I found it sitting on the edge of a cliff, even though I'm deathly afraid of heights. My feelings alternated between nausea at the sheer...

  • I am cold. I am tired. I am wet. But as I sit on the bus on my way back to our hotel, I am also the most content that I can ever remember being. River rafting down the River Tay in Scotland has just become my favorite sport and joking about it with my fellow People to People Student Ambassadors,...

  • Last summer I took a cruise to the Caribbean with my grandma and my little sister Becca. We had a great time. We got to zip line in Haiti, climb Dunns River Falls in Jamaica, swim with dolphins in Grand Cayman, and lounge around on the beaches of Cozumel, Mexico. We also got to explore an amazing...

  •      A couple years ago, I attended my high school's bi-annual music trip. All students who participate in band or chorus are eligible to attend, so there were quite a few students who went alone on the trip, whether I liked it or not. The destination for that year was Florida, a place all tourists...

  • Road trip! This time more prepared, lengthier and more sightseeing. Seriously, what’s a road trip without sightseeing, it’s a sign that we learned substantially from our last trip to Canada. My parents decided to save gas by commuting through a small, blue Nissan, a cozy five seated car. Just...

  • I don't look good at four in the morning. Actually, one could debate if I look good at any hour, but I will even agree that four in the morning is not the best time for me to be going anywhere. Four in the morning is a sacred time meant for one thing and one thing only, and if I am awake, then that...
