Road Trip

Big, bright, and glamorous is a teenage girls dream. Being the youngest in my family, I never have had much say on what goes on. Always being overpowered by my two head strong older brothers, and sometimes even my shy older sister, eventually gets old. Vacations, especially, were a decision that...

Every since childhood, I have been inspired by the masterpieces of the Walt Disney company.  Their stories are filled with beloved characters and memorable songs.  Like most children, I wanted to be a part of the magical worlds of Disney, and the Walt Disney World parks have always been a source...

My family's "What's Up East Coast?" trip starts in southern Florida - my home. I slept for probably most of the six to eight hour drive to get to just the border of Georgia so I can't really say how beautiful the scenery was; but I can say that my fluffy pink pillow came in very handy. Finally...

Road trip! This time more prepared, lengthier and more sightseeing. Seriously, what’s a road trip without sightseeing, it’s a sign that we learned substantially from our last trip to Canada. My parents decided to save gas by commuting through a small, blue Nissan, a cozy five seated car. Just...

  “We’re spending the day driving around, looking at trees?” My brother moaned, slumping into the back seat of our bronze minivan, his eyes lazily scanning the scene outside the window. Tall conifers stretched towards the sky on both sides, dense thickets of life extending for miles in each...

This year, over spring break, my mom, my grandma, my best friend Amanda and I went on an amazing road trip to the natural wonder known as the grand canyon. Living just outside Kansas City, this trip would take at least three days, so we decided to make it a week long trek there and back, stopping...

 Nature is everywhere, seen by everybody, but not everyone realizes the true beauty. I live on a farm in Montana. My house was built in a valley, surrounded by rolling hills, secluded from the rest of the world it sometimes seems. Trees grow all around the valley, a small creek flows, cows eat...

My trip started out from good old Gaithersburg, Maryland. I expected a lot out to this trip because we would be stopping at major places and heading towards the west where I had never been. First we headed over to Chicago to gather the rest of our family which was my dad’s brother and family....

  Disappointment sucks. At least that’s what being a Chicago Cubs fan my whole life has taught me. So when I first heard the news that our family vacation to Florida was canceled, due to the oil spill, I was thrilled that our consolation trip was Michigan. Oh Michigan, the place where you can be...
