  • My stomach churned as I sat in the airport in Portland, Maine, on my way to JFK airport in New York. Businessmen make the quick flight quite often, but this particular flight would never compare to a businessman’s journey, and the experience to be had could never be repeated or reenacted by anyone...

  • I’ve always thought that my parents were too big for their small towns. They were both from towns so small you could throw a rock from one end to the other. Each was at the top of their respective high school class, then they each climbed up ladders of success, and grew up to be big fish in...

  • It was cool, quiet, and except for the light from the moon, it was dark. It was, after all, the wee hours of the morning. After loading our pets into the Suburban, my mom, my little brother, and I began our journey to our new ranch in Northern Texas. My Dad, my sister, and my other brother stayed...

  • My favorite and most meaningful trip started on June 9th, 2012, my first day of volunteering in Nicaragua. A few months back my friend proposed a plan that her, my father and I took a trip down to Nicaragua to volunteer and experience the culture. In the end, my friend couldn’t make it and I...

The vacation was one planned at the last minute, and therefore had a very strict budget that we were to adhere to....

My brother and I were traveling with my mom and aunt to see another aunt who lives there during our spring break.   However, two days before our trip, our passports still had not arrived.  My mom had applied for them months before but...

  • Okay, so I think after reading this you all might think this not true but all the details of this trip is a reality. It all started on 23rd of June my mom and I decided to go to Virginia to visit our cousin. We took a Delta flight at Hobby Airport, which was one of the worst mistakes ever. Why?...

  • This past summer i recently took a trip to California with three of my best friends and one of my teachers from school. We were going on a trip for FCCLA, little did we know we were in for a ride. We got to Anaheim on July 9 and we were so excited. Here we were, four country girls from a very small...
