  •       "White's Only". You may say that most fifteen year olds would not fully understand what that meant as you passed a sign that had those two words on it. As I was growing up, my mother would tell me about the horrible experiences her and her family would go through just to make it in...

  • I view traveling as a privilege, not a right. People travel for many different reasons such as: relaxation or luxury. I like to use traveling to learn about different cultures, people, and history. My trip to New Orleans, with my Midway Baptist Youth Group, opened up a brand new view on life for...

  • Semi Finalist 2010 Teen Travel Writing Scholarship We came from the country, from a town with a post office, two churches, a hardware store, and probably as many cows and horses as people. It took thirteen hours in a bus to haul the thirty or so students from their small town, to Quebec, a city of...

  • It was going to be my parent's 30th anniversary gift to themselves, but for some reason, they didn't want to leave me behind. So there I was . . . almost the only person under 50 on a cruise ship of 800 crew and 1100 passengers. There were a shocking number of wheelchairs and walkers in the narrow...

  • My family is, to say the least, eccentric; my mother, a high energy, post-traumatic stress disorder patient, my father, a know-it-all, grammatically incorrect hockey fan, my younger brother, the definition of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, and me, the sassy instigator, are a rowdy bunch...

  • My dad has alway recalled the childhood road trips that he had with his family growing up. His dad drove the '67 Station Wagon while his mom co-piloted with the Thomas Guide stategically highlighted with the route. His tales were filled with family fights as well as amazing sights. He traveled to...

  • Ever since I was young I loved to go places. It didn’t matter where I went. If it was just a trip to the store with mom then I was happy. I just hated staying home. I really wanted to travel and I’ve been to many places like Orlando, West Palm Beach, Juno Beach, Fort Lauderdale and the Florida Keys...
