  • Dry brush, boulder-filled mountains, and a famous bakery of all-American apple pies, are the day-to-day sites I see in my life at home in the inlands of southern California.  Soon these sites would all change dramatically, and through the wonders of travel, I would alight in the other half of my...

  •    Summertime; eight weeks of freedom that all teenagers anticipate all school year long. There was no better place to spend it then where the sun is always shinning and the taste of salty mist from the waves lingers in the air. We spend all year longing for our skin to glow bronze from the...

  •   My trip experience was my mission trip that I went on at three separate times, for 18 days each, to San Salvador, El Salvador. The one I will be talking about is for this past summer from July 21- August 2 2009. I go with my church and we visit Hogar infintal Shalom home, an orphanage. They house...

  • On Friday, August 8th, 2008, I went to the upper east coast.  Yes, I am referring to Boston, home of Pahl Reveah, Fenway Pahk, and Cheahs.  This vacation was more exciting for me than past vacations because I was traveling with my aunt instead of my family.  Freedom and independence were thriving...

My aching feet beg for relief and my neck stings from the relentless sun. I ask myself why my parents decided to...

The spicy smell of chiken tikka from your roadside stalls, the hustle and honks of rickshaws on your streets, the towering posters of scantily clad actresses and dreamy actors slung on your buildings. Seriously, you have a never-ending supply of great experiences -- that I never have...

  • When you hear the name, "Jamaica," do you see white sandy beaches and beautiful blue waves washing up on the shore? Maybe a large resort with clean, white hotel rooms and the little towels folded like puppies sitting on the beds. You've at least got to be thinking about dreadlocks! Well, if this is...

  • Every two years, my family would save up enough money to travel back to our roots: Hong Kong. In the August of 2009, I returned back to my homeland. It was different this time around compared to the last few times I visited; the ambience was something i had never experienced before and the culture...

  • Visiting Cozumel was by far my favorite trip for several reasons. It is an island near the busy Playa del Carmen so you get the privacy mixed in with all of the choices of a non-island visitor. There are literally endless activities to do. We stayed at a place called Hotel Melia, which was...
