London

  I am proud to say that at the age of 17 I spent my spring break of senior year in London and Paris! Not many teens are given the opportunity to go half way across the world and experience a new culture and new surroundings. I counted down the days until I would board the plane and await a 13...

In the year 2009 I got a letter from an organization named People To People. I had no clue what the organization was about or the purpose. I later learned it was an ambassador program and I would get the opportunity to travel to England, Ireland, Wales, and Scotland. Dwight D. Eisenhower founded...

              From Swiss cheese and British tea parties to German Oompah bands, we are surrounded by our cultural diversity. Being exposed to a range of cultures through The Make a Wish Charity Band Tour for the last two summers has influenced my passions to understand the differences that make...

The summer after I graduated, I took a 9 day trip to England and Scotland.  It was the best experience of my life.  I had dreamed of going to England since I was in middle school.  My friend, Jen, and I always said we would go one day.  One day my junior year, Jen told me that two teachers from...

  I had the opportunity this past summer to travel to the University of Cambridge to attend a week-long International Baccalaureate Revision Course through the program OSC. Despite this being an incredible adventure as well as learning opportunity, as the time to leave rapidly approached, I...

Three years ago, my aunt took me to England to visit my cousin who was at the time stationed there while working for the American Embassy.  We visited all of the major landmarks, and my cousin showed us several of the local hideouts as well.  I absolutely fell in LOVE with England, and planned on...

     Throughout my life, I have been privileged to have numerous family vacations all over the world.  Recently, however, I have had a new found independence and find traveling alone invigorating.  Now when I say alone, I don't just mean aimlessly wandering the globe at my own free will.  Amongst...

  Traveling not only alone, but out of the country for the first time at 23-years-young is a nerve-rattling but ultimately gratifying experience. I made out like a bandit by snagging a $900+ roundtrip deal thanks to Travelocity and Aer Lingus (an stellar Ireland-based airline), having...

It was crowded in the Indianapolis Airport on August 5, 2011.  I was so excited to get on that plane and go to Europe.  Finally, it was time to board the plane.  It was an eight-hour plane ride but it was worth it in every way.  I couldn’t sleep because I was too excited, even though it was...

An amazing family vacation I went on one time was to New York, Northern Ireland and England. We first flew to New York, and toured around New York City. My family and I walked around the thriving city, took the ferry to the Statue of Liberty, central park and numerous other attractions of New...
