Three vans pulled out of the church parking lot around six o’clock that morning to start our thirteen hour drive to Knoxville, Tennessee. We soon discovered...

  • My first impression upon my arrival to the city was a strong one. Although I wasn’t sure what I expected exactly, what lay out before me was definitely not it. St. Petersburg was, by far, the most beautiful place I had ever seen.  One of my favorite parts of my stay was seeing the architecture. The...

  • Recently, me and my family finally got to take a trip that we were working so hard on this year; to Disneyland California. We've been planning the trip for years, but never got the chance to do it because of unfortunate events that kept happening. When we woke up early morning on June 5th,...

  •     One of my most memorable and personal travel experiences was this past summer when my youth group from church and I went on a mission trip to Nashville, Tennessee from July 2009. While we were there we did a lot of things we wouldn’t normally do in our day-to-day lives. We stepped out of our...

  • The small frigid room shocked my senses whilst I was trying to remember that outside, it was still the stifling hot summer Florida was famous for. The second day of school wasn’t all that it’d cracked up to be, seeing that my mind kept drifting to how I would be on the other side of the country by...

With the right company and a pleasant hotel, my trip to Santa Cruz has probably been the greatest I've been on...

  • I call it foolhardiness. Others may call it an adventure, or, even, FUN. Any way you look at it, hanging 800 feet in the air inside a tiny glass box was out of the ordinary for me, or my family. Although I was mostly worried about the thin cable by which the contraption hung, it was impossible to...

  • After moving to Colorado from California the summer before my freshman year of high school, I thought I had seen it all. At that age, a move to another state can feel like you’re moving to another country. My over-reacting, dramatic teenager abilities kicked in on the one-thousand mile life change...
