Road Trip

     To immerse oneself in unfamiliar surroundings is the most effective way to broaden one’s horizons and to be able to understand other’s opinions and points of views.  This is why I love to travel and why my family’s road trip to California was the most meaningful vacation of my life.  Our...

The jaded road ahead radiated with heat from the Arizona sun. The land around the asphalt was dusty and cracked. It was speckled with pale green shrubs and was wrapped by forgotten barbwire fences. The sky was bright and wide and the auburn land stretched into the horizon. And then suddenly- like...

Living in Houston, TX comes with tolerance for a certain type of weather. When you venture out the world seemingly changes and for the first time in twelve years I had the chance to experience it from every aspect. I had a rare chance to go from San Francisco, California all the way to Orlando,...

Growing up my parents made sure they kept me safe and out of trouble whether that meant putting seemingly unnecessary restrictions on more or not.  So when I discovered I would be allowed to take a beach trip with my friends this summer I was overjoyed!  Finally I was going to be able to pan...

The greatest trips are the unexpected ones. This was the case for my family in April 2012. We were headed back home from a youth convention in New Orleans, Louisiana when we decided to visit family in Mississippi. After we left from their home, we went and stopped on the beach. It was our first...

 I was once told that everyone out there should save a little time, somewhere in their life, for a cross country road trip and that is exactly what I have just experienced. For the month of June, 2012, I set out with my mother and her partner to explore the Western half of the United States. It...

The summer of 2012, my aunt, uncle and cousin Sasha invited me on a three-week trip to Colorado and Utah. I was there partially to keep my cousin company on while camping and touring state and national parks. They had made this type of trip before and in fact planned on revisiting some sites, as...
