January 2, 2010. The hardest trip I ever had to take. The trip was to my hometown Poughkeepsie NY. I never had been so scared to go in my life. I used to love going to NY to see my family, but this time it was different. I was missing one family member. The key to our family, the apple of my eye...Tags:
'I want to bike the bridge,' I said for the twentieth time. My parents exchanged an exasperated look. 'We've already gone over this,' Dad told me. 'We're not going to ride bikes over the Golden Gate Bridge.' 'Why not?' I demanded. Our vacation in San Francisco had been interesting thus far. We...Tags:
My family has always been one that enjoys traveling, however, in all of the vacations we have taken, our trip to Spain is the most interesting adventure. The vacation started, not on July 6th, but in January, when my father started searching for long-lost family located in Northwestern Spain. After...Tags:
I only ever experienced one memorable trip in my 17 years of existence: A road trip from bustling small town Riverdale, UT to the heated, desert-like Yuma, AZ.

As a young girl, growing up in front of the television, dreamily scanning through countless magazines, and attempting to sing like the vocalists on the radio, I was constantly surrounded by the productions of Hollywood. Back then I hadn’t a clue where most of the fame and fortune...Tags:
The opportunity to attend school and live in the French Alps for a year was too good to pass up. By the time packing was finished and farewells were said I could still hardly believe the plane was taking off at the end of the runway. As I peered out of the oval shaped, pressure sealed window of...Tags:
I am not going to lie, I am not new to traveling at all. My parents have both been in love with traveling since their early twenties and have not once hesitated to include my sister and me in their travel adventures (I went on my first international flight when I was 2 months old). My parents have...Tags:
Coming from Idaho and never traveling farther east than Utah, I could just feel in my bones, this was going to be a whole new experience. There were five of us all together and we were headed to see Washington DC for the first time in our lives. This would be a journey to the other side of the...Tags:
