  • Most high schoolers travel to foreign countries to explore, relax, and enjoy themselves while seeing the country. Yet, the trip I began on June 8th was about soaking in as much information on German horseback riding as possible, and ending as more of a soul search than anything else. Sitting on the...

  • For two years, my classmates and I raised money for a Mission's Trip to Peru. We were going to serve at an orphanage in Ayacucho, but since this was a once in a lifetime opportunity, we also decided to spend a week as tourists in Lima and Paracas. Last summer, in 2013, when the time finally came to...

  •          On August 26th, 2010 my Dad and I departed for one of the greatest trips of our lives.  My dad was driving me to Raleigh, North Carolina to give me a shot at beginning my professional gaming career.  MLG (www.majorleaguegaming.com) was hosting a Pro Circuit event at the Raleigh...

  • Imagine for a moment, being at one moment in the air, flying so high you can see the plane's shadow in the clouds, and then at another moment waiting impatiently for your hotel room at the Sheraton in Denver. Next, imagine going from rushing to and from competitive events, fighting for a spot on...

  •               When I was sixteen years old, my grandmother took me and my siblings to Hawaii for my eldest sister’s graduation present. Before we left I was optimistic at how relaxing it will be just sitting by the beach all day. We resided at the Embassy Suites on Wakiki Beach Walk. The location...

  •   Every year since I was in kindergarten all the way up to 10th grade, it seems as though everyone has a story to tell about going somewhere for the summer except for me. I’ve always dreamed about it, but I never really go anywhere. I do the same thing I do every year: tell about what I did at home...
