  • March 2008. The country of Costa Rica welcomes 20 Middle School kids. It’s hot and sticky; we all automatically start sweating, our previously cold bodies defrosting our “winter coats”, hair sticking to the sides of our faces. All the students who went to Costa Rica were encouraged to keep a...

  • The town of Sultan, Washington is completely amazing. Surrounded by the mountains, woods, and a river going right through it is a sight to behold. It is a place where Nature and civilization meet in complete harmony. Hearing the birds and seeing deer is not an uncommon thing. Even during many...

  • This summer I went to Hawaii with my family. The long flight from Pittsburgh to Phoenix and from Phoenix to Honolulu was not a problem for me as I am an avid traveler. I have been on over twenty flights to destinations such as Italy, California, and Florida multiple times, but Hawaii offered...

  •   My adventure started on December 27, 2007. I arrived at the Charles de Gaulle International Airport. I was in the city of Paris and 5661 miles away from home, away from my parents, away from familiarity. I had been waiting for this trip for nine months. It was unreal when the day arrived. I went...
