  •            Everything lives in San Diego: animals, nature, history, culture, and entertainment. Harmonious community is created under the warm sun, by the beautiful beach, backed by proudly standing mountains. There is always something to see, feel, listen, and taste. San Diego is a place where...

  •   It is hard to comprehend a world untouched by human existence, the raw natural beauty unseen by civilization. To look upon a land unnoted in the history of the world would be overwhelming to the point of disbelief. Standing above Jenny Lake looking out across the vast expanse of snow covered...

  •      It had been a long day in Africa. It was our fourth day and our luggage was still lost, and we'd just spent the whole day driving and looking at crocodiles, rhinos, zebras, lions, baboons, ostriches, monkeys, and almost every other African animal you can think of. Tired and exhausted that...

My adventure started at San Francisco International airport at one A.M. in a dreary morning and a hint of...

  •             When my dad, my older brother, and I arrived in Beijing, China, we had no idea what we were going to eat. We cannot speak or read Chinese, so we had extreme difficulty whenever we went to a restaurant. Around the sixteenth day of the trip, we trekked to Yonghegong Lama Temple. After...

  • March of 2012 My school took a group of students and parents on a trip to Italy where ancient history loomed. We all signed up on EF Tours and had an amazing guide named Rita. The tour schedules everything for you so all you have to do is pack and be at the airport on time. The tour will place...

  • This past summer I took a trip to London with my Girl Scout troop that has inspired me as an artist and made me want to go college for art when I finish high school. London has a quality about it that American cities will never achieve. American architecture is focused on function rather than...
