Road Trip

     The hot and humid air felt blissful, after riding in a very cold car for over seven hours. My grandpa had wanted to visit relatives before they passed away, and his desire was the reason for my mom, sister, brother, pregnant aunt, uncle, grandpa, and me all piling into a mini-van for a mere...

Our Road Trip:   You may know the slogans; Vegas, Baby Vegas, What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. You may know the sites; the fountains at the Bellagio, The Pirates at Treasure Island, the Lions at the Mirage. You may know the sounds; cars cruising up and down The Strip in that fabulous...

Family vacations never seem to go as planned. No matter how early we plan to leave, we always peel out two hours past the time scheduled. No matter how few rest stops we plan to take, every thirty minutes another person requires a toilet. As a family of five, each having their own needs, travel...

My trip was from Mexico to the United States, during the spring of 2009. It was my first trip without my parents. It took my aunt and me three days to travel from San Luis Potosi to Chicago, Illinois. Those three days were the saddest and longest days of my life. Saying goodbye to my parents and...

Two summers ago, I traveled to Park City, Utah. My younger sister plays for a competitive Travel Softball team. This summer trip was her trip to ASA Nationals and I distinctly remember my reluctance to go: Why should I go support my sister, while I am bored to tears?  Regardless, I had no better...

I have been fascinated by dinosaurs my whole life and am interested in studying paleontology.  So, four years ago, my parents took me on a 3-week trip to all the museums and places where I could learn about paleontology in the Western U.S. and Canada.  We started out by traveling to Grand...

Last summer, my family and I took a road trip from a tiny town near Houston, Texas to the Grand Canyon and back. Of course, we stopped nearly a million places in between. We saw some breathtaking sights, met wonderful people, stayed in a cramped pop-up camper, and grew closer together as a family...

I recently had the opportunity to travel across the U.S. with my giant, crazy family. We were kicked out of the house we were renting because the owner lost it. After a long hard search in trying to find a new place to live, we decided to say "screw it" why not take a road trip? We fumbled over...

     Traveling is a great experience; it is a way to get outside of the town you are used to and see new things. I love to travel just as much as anyone else; especially to Navarre Beach, Florida. I know, going to a beach is not original; but I love the memories I have made there and every time I...
