    After a seven hour plane ride over the Pacific Ocean, my mom and I were starved.  We spoke to a few Hawaiian locals, and concluded that Aloha Mixed Plate was an affordable restaurant to sample authentic Hawaiian cuisine.  We both decided to try the Kalua Pork dish.  The pork is wrapped in seaweed,...

    I had never been far from the metropolitan city of Mumbai when I had visited India, so traveling to North India, or Uttar Bharat, was the first time I would see different parts of India.  North India is quite different from Mumbai.  Mumbai, a coastal city, is humid, while North India is dry.  The...

    My personal travel experience is very unique. I do not recall many who have done what my family and I do. In place of our family union, every fall my family gets together for a tradition. This tradition is to make homemade applebutter. Being that my family is widespread throughout the U.S., we...

         It was my very first time. I had never been out of the country before this, and I had no idea what to expect. I had seen TV commercials of slums in third world countries, but I never assumed I'd see it myself. I smelled the odor, walked the dirty paths, and held the crying children. For the...

    Sweat poured down my face as we passed under an arch. The path was dangerously narrow here and a daring look down the edge showed us a steep seventy-five foot drop hampered only by a couple of shrubs. "Wait for us!" Mom called out from behind. I turned around to make sure my sister was keeping up....

    'Hey, how was your trip to Ghana!?' I get this a lot, and I never really know how to respond. People who ask are waiting to hear about the oppressive heat, the wild animals, and the scarcity of food. In contrast, the first thing that comes to my mind when I think 'Africa' is how frustrating...

      Whenever I am fortunate enough to have the time to look back on all the vacations I've ever been on, it's my trip to San Francisco in the summer of 2009 that I recall the most. I vividly remember the delight and wonder I had in anticipation of making the trip; I could feel that this vacation...

    Nineteen days, five thousand one hundred and thirty nine miles later, we finally arrived home.  Schaeffer vacations were never known to be endless weeks of beach resorts; but, even this was nothing like we’d ever done before!  In almost three weeks, we drove from San Francisco, California to our...
