  • Slowly, I pulled myself up the steps that seemed a mile high. I'm so far up in the sky that there is barely any oxygen for me to breathe. The wind was strong, and the rain was cold. All I was wearing was shorts, and a bright red raincoat. I looked up, and I saw the top, and I was not far away. I...

  • On April 6, 2007, I stepped on my first airplane for a direct flight to London. I had spent a year and a half planning for my ten day trip to London, Paris, Lucerne, and Heidelburg. I was nervous about the flight, but too excited to notice.   I was taking the trip with my Aunt Carol, Uncle Rick, my...

  •       My trip to Brazil began on June 14, 2012. It had been four years since I last been to Progresso, Brazil. This year I went on the trip with my aunt, uncle, and two cousins.

The cliffs regally wear this flawless sunset like a water-color cape flying behind their rocky shoulders. Every shrub, rock and organism is exquisitely placed on this luxuriously...

  • Nine hours in the air, three airports, a six hour time change, two opposite climates; spring break 2005 in Maui, Hawaii. Every year we went to a different place for spring break, and for the most part the agenda was the same each time. We would fly out of O’Hare International where snow still...

  •   The most memorable trip I have ever taken was my fun filled adventure to the Bahamas. My family and I took a four day cruise to the tropical paradise and I experienced things that I will never forget. As well as being the best experience of my life, the trip taught me something about life that I...

  •     Many people say life is about opportunities. I believe however, that it is what you get out of those opportunities that matters the most. This summer I was blessed with the opportunity to go to the National Youth Leadership Forum on Medicine in Boston. By taking advantage of this nomination,...

  • The moment I stepped out of the sliding glass doors of the airport, I inhaled the heavy air deeply through my nostrils. There were hordes of people standing back to back packed behind the rail gates, kids on their tippy toes, middle aged men with newly lit cigarettes in their mouths. It had been...
