Road Trip

When you think about camping, what do you picture? Do you see a tent, or a pop-up camper? Are you boiling spring water, or drinking from the campground water spigot? Camping means different things to different people, from the hardcore, mountaineering types, to the comfort-seeking log cabin...

Knowing that my family and I were leaving for beautiful sunny California in less than day made me so stoked. Finally, I get to leave lame bipolar Oregon. Nevertheless, my body was pretty burnt out from running around this Five bedroom house looking for my necessity. It contained about half my...

The ONLY reason I’m going is to visit my best friend at college, I told myself. Why else would I spend my senior year spring break sitting in a car for 12 hours with people I don’t even know? I don’t even have to socialize with my best friend’s mom, little brother, grandmother, and mom’s...

On a recent romantic getaway upstate, my wife and I discovered the little town of Hammondsport, New York, located at the base of Keuka Lake, one of the many Finger Lakes. The pace of the vacation is what I will remember most, plenty of leisure time. We didn't try to attack this vacation, there was...

Catharina (a German foreign exchange student) and I got to...

After packing for days for Teens Westward Bound, the day of departure finally arrived. As my parents drove me to Davidson College, the point of departure, I suddenly began to feel  a monster of nerves rise up inside me. I was about to depart on a trip across America for twenty-three days without...

A personal traveling experience that I had was when some of my family and I went up to Washington State to go pick up my sister and see her graduate. We went through several states such as California, Nevada, Oregon, and Washington. It was a planned out 3 day trip straight out to Washington. I...

One week my dad, my two brothers, and I were driving an RV back to Texas, because we had rented it to get my grandpa back to Michigan.  On the way to Texas we spent the night in a Wal-Mart parking lot. It was so much fun camping in a parking lot with my dad and brothers just watching TV.  We...

Last year, on a few days off work in Kosovo, we went to Greece! The country was amazing, but the most exciting part was the journey. Or, as I like to call it, The Odyssey. It all started when Neil and I boarded the bus from Pristina, Kosovo to Skopje, Macedonia. We were planning to stay the night...
