  •     This Thanksgiving, I had the pleasure of traveling with my parents to Sanibel Island, Florida. My dad had discovered the place 5 years ago, and fell in love with it. He wanted to share the beautiful island, with its original stores (no chain stores are allowed on the island), friendly people...

  • “Please put your seats back and your tray tables in their full upright position. We’re approaching our final descent into San Diego,” droned a monotonous voice from above. The landing gear slowly stretched itself out into the beautiful Southern California sky. With my eyes glued to the window, my...

  • Last summer my dad got the crazy idea to try biking from our house in Chanhassen, MN to Rapid City, SD and to take me along with him. I had never gone on a bike trip any larger than a day trip, after which there was plenty of time to recover. I didn’t really realize what I was getting into until I...

  • I was asked by my grandmother to go to Virginia for a camping trip. Not wanting to hurt her feelings, I told her yes. On several occasions I have been on a trip with my grandmother and there always seems to be a pattern every time with the beginning of the trip. This time I spent the night over my...

  • Spring Break of 2007, most are thinking of their upcoming Florida trip, or just preparing for a week of rest at home.

As an officer in Student Council, I with other six officers, got to go to a summer leadership workshop for Student Council at Texas State University. This trip was the first one that our school had ever...

  • A pointless trip is the best kind. The kind where you just get in a car and drive. it does not matter where or why or how long you will be gone. It is just you and the long road and gas station coffee. That is all my favorite trip was, really. It was a Saturday. I remember because the weekend still...

  • In 2010, my Spring Break was classified. To a faraway land where danger and peril lurks at every street corner, in every hobo's glinting eye, in every broken sidewalk and graffiti painting. My team of elite investigators flew in our not-so-private jet. Yes: we flew economy class to San Diego. We...

  • Everyone was so excited. Luggage checks were carried out. Tags inserted. Goodbyes expressed. Busses boarded. Off we went to Newark Airport. No one had ever heard of Slovenia, so when people would ask us where we were going, most would say Italy because it was a more familiar place. Around noon, the...

  • It was my first flight by myself, though it was a quick, painless one, only a short puddle hop, from the Los Angeles to San Jose airport. From there we would go to Stanford University, I was traveling to attend a law and trial conference that was being held there. For these 10 days, we would live...
