  • Over this past summer, my family and I went on an Adventures by Disney vacation. We went on their mid-Atlantic Spirit of America tour. Disney advertises these types of vacations as 'The adventure of a lifetime,' and boy was it ever! Even though I'd been to Disney World twice before, I didn't know...

  • The trip I took, was a requirement little did I know it would effect my life profoundly. I attend a Catholic high school where service hours is a yearly requirement and achieving the goal of 20 hours in my junior year seemed effortless. When the deadline of the Christian Service Project was...

  • Feelings of excitement washed over me as we pulled out of the driveway, our SUV piled with skim boards, towels, sand castle equipment, and bags bursting at the seams. I figured in approximately ten hours, we would be at the tropical beach paradise of Destin, Florida. Little did I know that...

  • The summer before my junior year my family planned a trip to our country’s great capital, Washington D.C. We were leaving on Independence Day, bright and early to arrive in D.C. with enough time to watch the fireworks. Upon our arrival before getting out of the airport, I was already stunned by the...

  • One might not think of traveling to Salem, Oregon for an interesting vacation, however, those that don’t are missing out on the hidden gem of the northwest.  Salem is in the ideal location of Oregon- just south of the bustling cosmopolitan city of Portland, just east of the stunning, secluded...

  •   Every summer my family and I always have a get away time, from bills, stress, and the worlds “problems”, in other words a vacation.  The summer of 2006 was a life changing experience; we went to the WindyCity, Chicago, Illinois. Personally, I have always heard of BIG city lights and cool weather...

  • In 2009, my step-father, Dan, lost his job – what a bummer. My mom is a teacher, so she had the summer off, and now Dan had a lot of free time on his hands. They decided to take their kids, all seven of us, on a cross-country road trip. Yes, most people thought they were nuts! However, we set off...
