  • I had never been far from the metropolitan city of Mumbai when I had visited India, so traveling to North India, or Uttar Bharat, was the first time I would see different parts of India.  North India is quite different from Mumbai.  Mumbai, a coastal city, is humid, while North India is dry.  The...

  • It's was three weeks before school started. I found out my sisters and my cousin were planning to take a trip to New York -- New Jersey actually -- to where my uncle lives and where my grandma is staying. The reason we went was to visit my grandma before she left for Vietnam and to visit New York...

  • In June of 2009, I spent a week of my summer dedicating my time to teaching young children about Christ with my newly developed youth group. We traveled to Mobile, Alabama to a small church called Shalom Baptist Church. Three years ago my church assisted in building and providing for this church,...

  • I’ve always been a little confused as to why my mother was teary-eyed and even my stoic-of-a-dad developed a noticeable lump in his throat that day at LAX. For my sophomore spring break, I would be leaving my home in the suburban bubble in Southern California known as Cerritos, and visiting my...

  • It is really quite a surreal feeling. My whole life I had been planted firmly in America, having no knowledge of the world outside of my confinements.

  • My family took an incredible trip to Berlin, Krakow, Budapest, Vienna, and Prague over just 11 days in Spring 2011. Much can be said about a trip to the former Eastern bloc: eye-opening, at times dark and dreary, and “significant.”  First stop: Berlin, the heart of strife between East and West...

  •          The plane touched down at Charles De Gaulle airport, all of the passengers clapped, and I knew that the month ahead of me would be an experience of a lifetime.  It was the summer before my junior year in high school, I had been chosen to travel around Europe and play music with Blue Lake...

  • I pull aside the wispy ocean-colored curtains - the fabric seems weaved out of air stained green and blue - and open the window. Sunlight the color of custard cream streams in, rich yellow bathing the room with a heavenly glow. Nearly-invisible motes fall and rise on the white sheets and...

  • The city of love! The city of lights! Baguettes for breakfast, snails as a snack and cheese galore! Wine all the time, cigarettes all around, and berets abound! Sadly, this wildly stereotypical depiction of Paris, France was approximately what I had in mind when I first learned I was to visit this...

  • Exhausted and exhilarated, my classmates and I arrived at Fiumicino Airport in Rome. As part of a school-sponsored exchange program, we were en route to Assisi, and were anxious to meet our Italian counterparts. However, the airport information screen that directed us to our luggage kept changing....
