  • June 13, 2012 We darted into the banal Queensborough Plaza S ubway station today, a block away from our Comfort Inn Hotel, and I was not impressed. For New York City, it appeared rather tame and unoccupied to me. We did not even have to wait in line to buy the four yellow metro card tickets for...

  • Two summers ago, I had the most amazing travel experience of my life when I had the opportunity to travel to the Galápagos Islands. My mother, grandmother, and I took a 4-day cruise aboard the Galapagos Explorer II. We boarded the boat at Santa Cruz, an island about 1-hour from Guayaquil, Ecuador...

  • Stepping off of the plane and entering a foreign country was an impactful moment. Knowing it would be a week till I would see my family again and venturing out into the unknown was surreal but I had God's peace. I took in the faces and language with wide eyed wonder. Hola, audios, amigo, and como...

  • Last summer, I was blessed with the opportunity to go on a mission trip with my church family to Atlanta, Georgia through Experience Mission.The trip started out like the previous mission trip I had been on with my youth group: 30 sponsors and high schoolers climbed onto our big black bus, and we...

  • The opportunity to attend school and live in the French Alps for a year was too good to pass up. By the time packing was finished and farewells were said I could still hardly believe the plane was taking off at the end of the runway. As I peered out of the oval shaped, pressure sealed window of...

  • I have been to Chicago many times throughout my life and I didn’t think this trip would be different. It was. This time I saw the city through the anxious eyes of a new driver as I watched my Dad break all the rules my teacher had been preaching! I saw the skyline and I paid attention to the...

  • Drowsily, I looked out the window after an attempt to sleep throughout the night. An 18-hour bus ride isn’t exactly the easiest place to take a snooze, so I had slept fitfully. It had been a rough night; however, looking out that window suddenly made everything worth it. Surrounding me was the most...

  • For the longest time I have wanted to visit the monstrosity of a school known as the University of Texas. My dreams had finally come true as I was accepted with a scholarship for a program known as CEO (or Consider Every Option), a Women’s Engineering program at the campus in Austin, TX. It was a...

  • The summer of my sophomore year I embarked on a new travel experience. I took a mission trip to the Dominican Republic. My school, Mount Paran Christian School, always encourages students to participate in at least one of the mission opportunities that are offered during their four years in high...
