  • Hola!  This summer I traveled to the great lands of Costa Rica. This was a trip affiliated with my school’s Spanish department. I believe that fate works in mysterious ways, especially presenting itself in the form of signs. There are signs everywhere for people to see and interpret. These signs...

  • The Caribbean, most beautiful travel experience I’ve ever had. It was also my first time off of United States soil. I’d say most of the adventure took place in the airport, most hectic place I’ve ever seen. Being a first time flyer I was more than thrilled to be going on this vacation. It was mid-...

  • It was December.  My family was going to visit Montana for Christmas, where we would stay in a condominium and ski for a week.  We had decided to take the train for a new experience.  Unfortunately, that experience was only the first of our Montana mishaps. The Amtrak pulled in to our station at...

  •  Our camping adventure began the night prior to the actual excursion. There were four of us. My girlfriend (Kristen), my two best friends (Dan and Matt) and I, all wanted to go out camping at the suggestion of my significant other. She insisted it would be a walk in the park considering she and...

  • As a French Language student at Palos Verdes High School, I was encouraged to sponsor an exchange student for a month during the summer of 2011.  Amelie Lejeune was from Luxembourg and from the moment we met we became life long sisters! After an amazing time in California, Amelie went home but...

We live in a suburb of Philadelphia and although we are not world travelers, we have been to places like Cape Cod, Massachusetts, Virginia, New...

  •             Not many people can say they totally missed Los Angeles and ended up in San Diego. Nor can many people can say they stayed in Wigwams on route sixty-six. However, thanks to a five thousand mile road trip my family and I can make both of those unique claims, and a few others...

  •     Two years of high school French did nothing to prepare me for my first taste of South America. Summer had barely started when, after a few days of hectic packing, I was meeting up with five hundred other teenagers from around the world, finally embarking on the missions trip we’d spent months...

  •  Of all the destinations to which I had dreamt of traveling, Scotland was not a place I had ever considered.  Of course, when I got the chance to go to the Festival Fringe, the largest arts festival in the world, with a group from my high school, I knew I had to go.  Preparation for our trip,...
