  • The sun was hot, bright, high in the sky, the twelve o’ clock beams filtering in through the heavy wooden shutters of my window. I smiled, waking up softly as one gently caressed my face, like the mother I’d left behind five thousand miles away. Stretching slightly, holding back a yawn, I...

  •      My glasses fog up as the glass airport doors open, allowing the humidity to surround me. I stumble out of the airport, suprised at the intense weather. I notice how lush and green and beautiful this part of Cancun is. I slide into a cab with my mother and her friend, Omni Resort our...

The Hintz family, plus an extended family member, boarded the ship and explored it to every corner. The first day was a day at sea and many things were to be seen on the boat. There was...

  • I breathe in deeply. Hold this air in my lungs until I have to exhale. The fresh scent of ocean, smoke, and wind remains.
