Just Take the Tube!

I had never been in England before. Rarely had I ever travelled without my parents in the past either. Yet both these situations somehow came together in my trip to London this summer with my brother.  There, we played the roles of typical tourists, oohing and aahing at sights that the locals passed every day and no longer found spectacular. Although the trip lasted 3 days, I find that it is best to talk about the one uncharacteristically bright London summer day which will go down in my memory as unforgettable.

YOLO…it’s an acronym meaning “you only live once.”  When my school announced a trip to Europe which would include 4 days in London, England, my friends and I knew this was the experience of a lifetime that we couldn’t miss…and it proved to be just that!  One day stood out more than the rest though, the day we visited Westminster Abbey.

A Yellow Brick Road

            Gold was everywhere: the buildings, the parks, the people. Everything possessed an aura that was unquestionably golden. That was what I noticed the moment I stepped from the dim yellow lights of the airplane into the night-time brilliance that was London. Even in the harsh fluorescence that pervades every city in the evenings, London had its golden glow.

A Culture Shock to Remember

It was finally the summer of 2011, the summer that I knew would be remembered, the summer that most kids would envy, and the summer that would change my life.  I remembered waking up that June morning and thinking, “Today is the day that I have been waiting nearly an entire year for, and it’s finally happening. I’m finally taking my first trip across seas to Europe.” Of course, I couldn’t hold back the tears when I had to tell my mother and father good-bye for a few days.

From Britain to Greece: Eurotrip 2010

Getting the chance to travel the world is a pretty rare one, so two years ago, when my sister and I got the opportunity to travel across the entire continent of Europe, we readily took it.  Although my parents were unable to join us for the trip, as it was a school sponsored one, our older brother had gone on a similar trip in a previous year, so our parents were perfectly willing to allow us to travel with a school group.

My Trip Across The Atlantic

As a resident of South Florida I am engrossed in a plethora of different cultures and people from every corner of this world every day. These surroundings evolved my interest in the world outside of South Florida. I took every opportunity to study such countries as Costa Rica, France, Cambodia, etc. My first opportunity to travel was when I was 14 years old and my mother and I took the 9hr flight to Great Britain.
