  • The summer of 2012, my aunt, uncle and cousin Sasha invited me on a three-week trip to Colorado and Utah. I was there partially to keep my cousin company on while camping and touring state and national parks. They had made this type of trip before and in fact planned on revisiting some sites, as...

  • My trip to Regensburg, Germany was through a Sister Cities Program offered through my school. For me, it was a life changing experience, because it made me aware of what life is like for people all around the world. The trip began with a US Airways flight leaving at 6 AM, and arriving in...

  • One of the most rewarding experiences I have encountered in my life was when I traveled with my church to Jamaica. Although it took a lot of time and dedication to prepare and raise money before the actual mission trip, the journey has made a lasting impact on me.  In this poverty stricken...

  • We are headed southbound on our way to Bend, Oregon  for four days of mountain biking and rock climbing. Yesterday we finished our four day backpack on the Olympic Peninsula. We all had an amazing time!  We took full advantage of our one sunny afternoon by swimming in the chilly pacific ocean. We...

  • The summer of 2011 to date, has been the most incredible summer of my life. Not because my family and I traveled to some upscale, fluffed up resort. Instead, a humbling trip to the island of Anna Maria, FL is what truly shaped me. Flashback to a year ago, I was 16 and entitled. I felt like I...
