  • Okay, so the title is a little cheesy, but it accurately describes my family’s latest vacation. I am a senior in high school, and have been planning my college career prior to even entering my secondary one. I know the course like the back of my hand: research, statistics, rankings, applications,...

  • The summer of 2011, I traveled to Peru in South America. The morning of the departure, it was hot and humid and yet I was headed to Lima, Peru on the first day. I had three things on my mind: whether I would arrive on time, how to adjust to the culture, and how to handle myself being without my...

  • Leather seats with oversized pillows, hostess serving chicken and apple juice, 39,000 feet above civilization, clouds overshadowing the wings, front-row views of sunsets. That was everything my trip was not. No leather seats. No first class. My family makes it their duty to visit at least one...

  • Being Mexican-American comes with a great advantage. Here is the thing why it is so great; I get to travel to Mexico annually.

  •  “Welcome home,” said the speaker at Independence Hall in Tel Aviv. Even though we all had jet-lag from the twelve hour flight, those two words are probably the most memorable of our entire trip.  We were twenty-four Jewish teens on a twenty-four day National Federation of Temple Youth (NFTY) trip...

  • I'd never been across the sea before. A long while ago I went up to Alaska on a cruise, but even so, I never even left the U.S. except for a layover in Vancouver. I was, in a word, terrified. Leaving home was always tough for me, but knowing that I was to spend 10 hours aboard a plane flying over a...

  •             It was a typical warm Hawaiian winter, when my parents surprised my sisters and I with tickets to an exotic place.  Pakistan- the birthplace of my parents, the home of my grandparents, and the land of my countless cousins.  Being born on the Big Island of Hawaii, I was unsure of what to...
