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...

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...

The British Museum of London is world-renowned for its beautiful collection of artifacts, gleaned from the old British Empire’s many territories and conquests. The building itself is imposing as well: high ceilings, gleaming white stone, the famous Rotunda. But, as my family and I were soon to...

There are some experiences in life that leave no more impression than a paddle on the water; they happen, they end, and never again cross our mind. However, occasionally in life we have an experience that changes us forever - changes our outlook and who we are as person. These events stay with us...

July 5: Driving down to LA was boring. My Dad and I left at 7 a.m. We arrived three hours before my three hour early check-in. we checked out some shops and grabbed some lunch to kill time. Finally we met up with the rest of my group. Once on the plane I discovered that I had my own little...
