  • Going on a cruise was better than I expected. I was sixteen at the time of this cruise. My family arived at the port and I said to my mom, 'Me and the water are not going to work together...' She informed me the cruise ship was a wonderful ship, and I was going to LOVE it.  However, I did not like...

  • Dr. Sadat arrives home from a long day of work. Greeted by his family, he settles into his favorite spot in the Persian-styled family room. The evening news is switched on, and a gloomy light fills the room as ABC, CBS, or Fox delivers a seemingly endless string of events to the Sadat family's ears...

  • Sometime at the start of my junior year in high school, I became obsessed with the idea of living in New York in a teeny apartment filled with more art supplies than living space.

  • I have recently discovered that sometimes in life it is the little detours rather than the big trips that tend to make all the biggest differences. Over this past summer I took one such detour that has put my life on a whole new course. In July of 2007 my family decided to take a vacation.   Wow!...

  •            In the summer of 2006, I went on the adventure of my life. I went on a four-week trip to Israel with a group of teens from around the nation. I was nervous and excited not only for meeting so many new people, but also for finally visiting the land of my ancestors: a land I had been...

  • I love to visit places I have never been before, and do things I never imagined I’d do. I had the privilege to travel with my high school dance team last year on March 20, 2009. It was my Junior year, and we got a bid to nationals located in Disney World Florida. I was honored to go, we stayed at...

  • Stepping off the bus, I was hit hard with the hot August air and the smell of burning forests miles away. I looked around this small, forgotten village in the Russian countryside and sensed the sharp contrast between the air-conditioned bus that we had just arrived in and the neglected houses of...
