Why students travel

  • If you’ve ever been the victim of a relative with a travel trivia book, chances are you’ve had to answer the query, “Do you prefer the beach or the mountains?” For me, that question has always brought a host of fond memories. While I’ve enjoyed every trip I’ve taken as the daughter of a pair of...

  •             My name is Samuel Huo and I live in Dover, the capital of the first state Delaware.  The city has so many sites, events, and sea creatures that people will not find in other places. For example, every year in the spring, many horseshoe crabs come to shores in the Delaware Bay to mate...

  • One of the best family trips that I have ever taken was when my family flew down to Phoenix, Arizona. I had the time of my life and almost every day I will bug my mom about going there again, much to her annoyance, but I know that she wants to go back too. This trip did make me open my eyes more...

  • Traveling is always an exciting experience, especially when it’s somewhere foreign. Just recently, I spent 10 days exploring and volunteering in Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands in South America. Not only was this trip unique because of its location, but it was a school service trip, without my...

A trip, a small vacation, an escape from the cold clutches of Ohio, and to the warm beaches of Florida! Yes, the trip I have been waiting for since my freshman year. The...

  •  Nature is everywhere, seen by everybody, but not everyone realizes the true beauty. I live on a farm in Montana. My house was built in a valley, surrounded by rolling hills, secluded from the rest of the world it sometimes seems. Trees grow all around the valley, a small creek flows, cows eat...

  • “Gracias” I replied, as a dinner of unknown fruits and vegetables rolled in a banana tree leaf was placed into my timid hand. I flashed a reassuring smile as the native Ecuadorians anxiously awaited approval. At the conclusion of the jungle meal, Chicha, the local drink traditionally made of chewed...

  • The sun beat down on our bare backs as we jogged along the water’s edge. I could feel the heat starting to burn my skin, turning its pretty fair complexion into a far more burdening red one. After taking a quick break to hydrate, we continued to jog for about a minute until finally we came back...

  • On July 1, 2010, I got back from Costa Rica. Back from the hot days and rainy afternoons. Back from the graveyard shift night walks.   Overall, the trip with the teen summer program Rustic Pathways was amazing. Although I was slightly apprehensive because of the small group number, the trip was...
