Road Trip

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.

As I walk the halls of school, I cannot help but overhear of the exotic and tropical adventures of my peers reminiscing upon his and her Spring break vacations. Speaking excitedly with  hand gestures followed by high-pitched laughter, the senior girls tell tales of the numerous men they...

My trip to Ocala was a lot of fun. I went with just me and my mom. Her name is Ana, but people call her Tammy. It was my first time going on a trip with just me and her, so it had a lot of significant meaning to me. We went to a few restaurants, traveled around here and there, and just relaxed...

Home. It's usually not the first thing you think of when you see a 30 foot RV. But that's what it had to become for me. After selling our house 2 months before school ended, we were forced to make a home out of this RV. After school ended, we left to go on this epic journey that we planned months...

With today’s efficiency in transportation, one could easily hop on a comfortable 737 in Dallas, take a long nap for approximately three and a half hours, and wake up in sunny San Diego; arriving with the most hectic of his or her time being spent in the process of going through security. But no...

It was eight in the morning and the sun was already searing in the sky.  I lay on top of my dry sleeping bag, something unheard of when you have camped in the Northwest your entire life.  I was almost accustomed to the sound of cicada bugs high in the trees by that point.  I opened my eyes,...

I have never apprehended the world prior to a road trip I acquired in 2011 down the West Coast. When you’re converging with family, enjoying surprises and amazing twists along the way… Seeing the world makes your experience that much more dynamic.   Our road trip, initiating in Washington State...
