An Amazing Adventure

            It all started with an envelope.  An envelope encompassing an opportunity from a group called People to People.  Sixteen days in England and France!  How great does that sound?  At first, I was nervous about traveling 4,000 miles away from home, but after deliberation I decided that this once in a lifetime experience was too good to pass up.  Therefore, I would soon become a People to People Student Ambassador.

Terrible Tourists, Magnificent Memories

There are two major reasons people travel: to see places or to see people.  In the few travel experiences I’ve had, the people I’ve seen stand out most vividly in my memory.  This is especially true of the trip my Mom and I took to England in February of 2010.

Beautiful in Barbados

When my family traveled to Barbados, it was the first time I left America. My mom and I planned the trip with help from our local Liberty Travel, and the travel agent helped us get a really great deal. My family stayed at the Amaryllis Beach Resort. The one-bedroom suite was absolutely gorgeous, with a sleeper couch, kitchenette, and amazing view. We ate breakfast sitting on lounge chairs on the terrace, which overlooked a pool and the beach. We were often joined by little birds who watched us curiously.

Letters From London - Mission Base Camp

7/17 - (11A)Up until this point, traveling to England has been an adventure that I’ve played over and over again in my mind. Now, reality has begun to set in….no cell phone, limited luggage due to airline fees, and not knowing a soul that I’m about to travel alongside. To be honest, the only thing on my mind right now is surviving base camp. The details of camp are a mystery, but the idea is spiritual preparation, cross-cultural training, and team-building.

London: My American Dream

People always talk about how the United States really is the American Dream because venturing to America provides opportunity and hope. But I experienced this realization somewhere else; London.

A Slice of Literature

Going back in time requires no supernatural powers, no new-fangled machines with walls of blinking buttons and levers—walking into an era long-gone can be achieved as easily as walking through a wooden doorframe with the right mindset.

The London Adventure

As I stepped out of the airport the cold air licked my legs. This is not a place for shorts I thought to myself. Summer in London was nothing like the summer in the US and this destination, our last of three, was about 40 degrees colder. I’m just glad that at least I was the one who had checked the weather and packed jeans, unlike my unfortunate, tropical dressed family.
