It looks like...

  • While we all love excitement, my family has never been known for its dedication to thrill seeking. But when some good friends asked us to go sledding with them, we immediately agreed.

  •   Three Years Later   My entire life has been a travel story, part of my history that will forever be improvised on my heart.

We left everything behind that we didn't need- no cell phones to send one last text to the ones we love, no iPods to listen to in case we felt homesick. We tried to swallow some...

  • My dad excitedly climbed into his red, white and blue formula Volkswagen race car, adjusted his helmet, and then flipped the ignition switch to ‘on’ and the engine roared to life. He lightly tapped his foot on the gas and the car inched forward out of the paddock spot, headed for grid as the rest...

  •   While I gasped for air, I made that final step to the top of my climb as perspiration dripped off my body.  I could feel the breeze rush past my head, but I couldn’t seem to get any air to my lungs.  It felt like I was dying on the Great Wall in China, but I was actually having the time of my...
