  •   School was almost out and the stresses of final exams were lurking on my mind. If that wasn’t enough I had an essay due in one week and I couldn’t think of anything to write about “something I learned recently”. Then my mom told me our family was going camping on the lake for Memorial weekend. My...

  • It was six in the morning, earlier than I’ve been awake on a summer’s day. But the usual haze of sleepiness that accompanies such an early hour was all but evaporated by the radiance of my excitement for the day’s events. This would be the first time in my life that I would leave my parents,...

  •   The typical summer vacation of a teenaged girl is simple: she lies on the beach, soaking up the sun with her close girl friends by her side. They discuss boys and sing along to popular songs on the radio. In lieu of this common paradise, I spent my summer preparing for an unordinary getaway. In...

  • My Father and Step Mother always take my brothers and me on annual vacations.  In 2009, they took us on our first cruise to the Bahamas.  In 2010 they took us on a cruise to Canada.  I speak for all of us when I say: to date our most memorable vacation was June 19, 2011 (Father's Day). We took...

I brought it up in passing, more as just a mention, then gauged their reactions... To my surprise, they...

  • Christmas, log cabins and nature -- the perfect combination for an amazing holiday, especially for one that brings people closer together. My week in Gatlingburg, Tennessee for the Christmas holiday was anything but ordinary. The trip did not consist of just my family, but a family from my church...

  • If you tremble at the sight of the world’s largest rodents, shudder at the thought tackling the metric system, or faint at the sight of “men-who-shouldn’t-be-wearing-Speedos” wearing Speedos -- Rio de Janeiro probably isn’t for you. But if you want an entirely new cultural experience -- unique...

  • The Lost Horizon was the name of the title of James Hilton’s 1933 novel that told of a mystical place called Shangri-la, lost in the mountains of Tibet.           2009: eighty-six years after the novel’s publication, I found my self lost in the tranquility of the mountains of a location named after...

  • Hopping on a plane and flying to various destinations feels natural to me. I have been doing it most of my life. However, this particular trip had me itching to get of my seat and depart the plane. I had never been out the country before; this was a new adventure that I was determined to conquer...
