Road Trip

Five people cramming into a truck full of luggage and snacks, who doesn't love a good family road trip to Illinois?  As my two brothers fought during the 18 hour car ride, I was at peace having the whole back row of my dads Suburban to myself. I was able to stretch  and sleep as I pleased...

Recently, me and my family finally got to take a trip that we were working so hard on this year; to Disneyland California. We've been planning the trip for years, but never got the chance to do it because of unfortunate events that kept happening. When we woke up early morning on June 5th,...

I was telling her about my plans to study abroad while in college, and my dreams to travel to foreign countries to learn about their culture. At one point in our discussion, my mom turned...

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...

In 2010, I went on a month long road trip around the United States! It was such a great time. I went soleley with my grandma Alverna and we went in her Mercedes SLK sports car.. What an odd yet exciting adventure!  Before I started on the road trip, everybody told me how it was going to be "the...
