A New Perspective

Most people come back from summer vacation with a new tan, a new outfit, and new, exciting stories to tell. Everyone greets each other with the usual "How was your summer?" and then proceeds to sum up their vacations in a few sentences.

Reflections on a Sun-Baked Beach

Several girls shrieked as the plane dipped to the right. I sucked in my breath with amazement as my classmates and I flew over the tropical island of Tioman, where we would be spending an entire week as a part of a team-building exercise.

My Life in Australia

The song 'Leaving on a Jet Plane' has always been just that, a song. But, my travels in Australia changed my opinion of it.

Cruise With Kids Vacations And Family-Friendly Ships

Kids are everywhere -- on cruise ships anyway -- whether you are in the Caribbean, Europe, Alaska or far-flung destinations like the Galapagos Islands and even the Arctic. According to the MMGY Global 2016 Portrait of American Travelers, those who travel with kids (63% vs. 56%) are more interested in a cruise vacation than those going solo, so with a projected 25.3 million passengers for 2017, kids will indeed be everywhere.

Climbing to New Caledonia

The American flag waved above me as I paraded across stage with forty other Americans all wearing red white and blue. We were surrounded by the reds, whites, greens and yellows of twenty-six other flags and their flag bearers, all cheering for their home country. Reminding us all why we were on stage, a fifty foot tall rock wall covered in colorful plastic climbing holds loomed behind us. We waited on stage with anticipation for the next day when we would all climb on the wall to compete for the title of World Champion.

The Big Blue

I have visited thousands of places, dozens of countries, lived through marvelous adventures, but nothing will ever compare the amazing experience I had in Polynesia. I was sixteen, I loved swimming and I got to realize one of my biggest dreams; diving, and finally being one with the ocean.
