      Ensenada   My trip to Ensenada, Baja California Mexico was the last time I went with my grandpa Jose. He died December 26, 2008. That trip is very memorable because it was the last trip I had with him. We went with my cousin, my sister, my uncle, and my aunt. This was during the summer...

    A new time, a new place, a new experience. My summer vacation could be described as virtually anything but old. The time zone was different as I was traveling to the East Coast from Wyoming. The environment was a new encounter as well, along with the more humid weather, so it is definitely safe to...

When they announced their engagement, my family was thrilled. We gushed about their wedding for months, fantasizing about the floral arrangements, and the Jordan...

I was looking forward to all the new things I would get to know -- the streets of Tokyo, the people, the food and all other secrets of Japan -- and yet I felt somewhat nervous about how new and strange everything would be once I...

I was envious of other children who stayed in the same place their whole life, being able to grow strong, long-lasting relationships...

    My high school only has one second language option, German. When I first started German in ninth grade, it was the last language I wanted to learn. I wanted to learn Spanish, French, or even Mandarin Chinese. But by the end of that year, I absolutely loved German. My teacher was great. He was...

    After finally graduating High School and a Cosmetology Program my family decided I needed a vacation. My family owns a house in Puerto Peñasco, Mexico in a close community called La Cholla, and on June 4th we all got in the car for our four hour road trip. But before we actually hit the road I...

    As I step off the airplane all I am thinking about is if the rest rooms in the Nairobi, Kenya airport are sanitary, because I desperately need one after flying for fourteen hours. I don’t even take time to notice the women milling around me in colorful outfits or appreciate the beauty of the...

                 About two summers ago, my mom and I had to fly to Vietnam. This wasn't for fun or for relaxation, it was to visit my grandmother. She is now over 90 years old. Even though this wasn't my first visit to Vietnam, it meant so much to me to see my grandmother. This trip taught me the...
