  • A trip to Los Angeles might be any person’s dream. That is, if they don’t live in the area and are filled with ideas of what the experience is like based off of what they have seen on television shows, music videos and the like. To me, Los Angeles is just another place. I lived there until I was...

There's the magnificent state of Hawaii to go to for surfing or mountains to go to for snowboarding, maybe even Europe for breath-taking arts. So many places to go, and all of them seem enjoyable.

  • Graffiti, rundown buildings, and lunar landscape engulfed my eyes as I ventured along the islands. I was not expecting to see any of those features at all! My family and I traveled to Hawaii in July of 2012. Not having been there before, we were expecting a lush, green place everywhere. As we...

  • From the Almalfi Coast to Vatican City my Italian adventure opened me up to sites that I had only seen in books and magazines.

  • I have two homes, one I’m emotionally tied to and the other physically. I lived in New Jersey for over half my life, now I live in Florida, and have for almost 4 years. We were supposed to be going to New Jersey for a family reunion last summer, but that just seemed too cliché. My mother and I...
