  • I was in 7th grade when I got the news "we're going on a cruise to the Bahamas!" my brother J.D  told me excitedly, he wasn't supposed to tell me because I tend to get overly excited about things. Words can not even describe how excited I was.  A couple of months passed and the antisipation was...

  •  During spring vacation of my junior year of high school, I was fortunate enough to go to Mali to build a school in a village called Biko.  I did this through a program I had been a part of at school called buildOn, which is a non-profit organization that does community service, global education,...

  • A vacation I would like to share with you is my voyage to New York City. Not only was I just going to the city that never sleeps for the first time, I was going to be part of the Macys Thanksgiving Day Parade. Growing up I would watch it every Thanksgiving and wish that I could be a part of...

  •  Every summer my family goes on a trip; and I don’t mean my mom, dad, brother and I. Oh no. When I say family I mean grandma, aunts, uncles and cousins too. Last year we all went to Disney World for a week, so imagine how our hearts dropped when we were told Niagara Falls was our destination for...

  • It was my freshman year of high school the week of homecoming. My step-dad is a member of the American Ambulance Association and he had a conference in Orlando. He decided it would be a great idea for us to come with him and make it into a family trip. We were all very anxious to go, since we had...

  •  There are two things that we hear constantly in our daily lives as Americans: get outside and get more exercise! My family took these two pieces of cultural advice to heart and decided to blend them into one awesome trip to “Slickrock Bike Trail” located near Arches National Park in Utah. After a...

  • Traveling is always a fun experience if you look at it through the right glasses. Take my trip to Greece over the summer of 2006. It looks wonderful and horrific, all at once. Greece is an amazing place with a fascinating history and eloquent language, but imagine going there with thirteen other...

  • On the morning of June 24, 2011 at 2:00 a.m., me and my church family boarded the bus and headed to Orlando, Florida. By 7:00 a.m., we were well into Georgia and everyone was hungry, so we stopped at Ryan’s for breakfast. Approaching the door, I could smell the sweet aromas of all of the delicious...

  • I awoke with a jolt to the beating of drums. Where I was I did not know, and who was creating such a cacophonous out of sync melody I did not want to find out. After rubbing my eyes sleepily, I stole a glance out my car window, and jumped. Staring back at me was a mob of twenty to thirty children,...

  • Over the summer of 2010 I went on the trip of a lifetime. I spent ten very short days in Europe with people I had gone to school with; they were almost complete strangers to me. I have always been the quiet girl and have kept to myself, over those ten days everything changed. Not only did I make...
