Journey to Washington DC

Quarter Finalist 2010 Teen Travel Writing Scholarship

Traveling, is such abroad term. I prefer to think of it as, taking adventures.

Traveling, is such abroad term. I prefer to think of it as, taking adventures. I remember my first solo adventure. It took place last summer around mid June. Somehow, a month before I had convinced my parents to let me fly alone to Washington DC to stay with my friend and her family for a few days. When they finally gave in, I was so excited I could barely breathe.

Semi Finalist 2009 FTF Teen Travel Writing Scholarship

Have you ever been somewhere and learned more in one day than you thought you’d learn in a lifetime? Ever experienced something so vivid, so real you thought you could taste it? That was me a few summers back! I’ve been on several trips, from down South Georgia to West California.

A Trip to escape my boredom

Semi Finalist 2009 FTF Teen Travel Writing Scholarship

Is the world actually greener on the other side? I wouldn’t know because I have been stuck in my hometown for almost my whole life. I have never visited the wonderful, exotic places in Asia, I have never experienced the cruel cold in Greenland, nor have I toured the commodious coliseum of Italy, so basically this tells you how uninteresting my life is.
