Rollin’ through Yellowstone National Park

Life is either a daring adventure or it is nothing," said Helen Keller. This summer, my family, my mom, dad, sister and I, went on an adventure. Our family vacation was to Yellowstone National Park. In Salt Lake City, we rented an RV and drove to the park. Some of our sights include geysers, hot springs, waterfalls, mud pots, and animals. We saw many beautiful views, animals, and had lots of fun....

Football Heaven

About two years ago when my family took our first real vacation, we traveled from our home in Fort Riley, Kansas, to the middle of Colorado.  We three kids were teens by this time, and that trip was the last one we took before my elder sister Kait went off to college.  We were gone for two or three weeks at the end of August, and we had an awesome time. After camping in Colorado Springs...

Riding The Back Roads

Our annual motorcycle trip began early Sunday, when my parents and I left Murfreesboro, Tennessee via the back roads to Thomasville, Georgia for a few days then north to Greeneville, South Carolina, the site of our annual Gold Wing Road Riders Association (GWRRA) rally.  The plan was to get south of Atlanta and park for the night.  Easier said than done. By early afternoon we were...

Craziness to San Diego

On the last week of June this summer, I went on a last minute and crazy trip to San Diego with my uncle, three cousins, and one weird stranger who tagged along. My cousin Annie realized she had to go to orientation at UC San Diego and the idiots that...

A Summer In Mexico

Of all the trips I have ever been on, the one that I hold most significant would be my journey to Mexico in the summer of 2006. That summer was a summer that had loomed long and unexciting during the school months prior. With no tropical vacationing excursion to look forward to and no plans to go to summer school, I felt driven by an antsy urge...

A Surfing Escape in Sandbridge Beach, Virginia

No matter how much you love the beach, a crowded one is not fun; it can be overkill. Screaming children, nagging moms and dads… sometimes you just need space. And space I found on a recent trip to Virginia Beach when my cousin Allison and I managed to escape the crowds by taking a short, 15 mile ride south to Sandbridge...

New to New York

It took me less than an hour to fall in love.  From the moment the airplane’s wheels graced the tarmac until the minute we set off from our hotel toward Times Square. That was all I needed. I was hooked. I wasn’t the only one, though. If I’m correct in my assumption, every member of my group completely shared my sentiments. From the moment we were standing on Broadway, with our...

My Trip to L.A.

Not only does Los Angeles scream celebrities, Hollywood and fame, it yells expensive, hot and did I mention its tendency to empty your pockets in record time? As I toured this grand city in Southern California, my family and I learned pretty quick that you don't touch ANYTHING as long as you are in the city limits of L.A. We learned that small pieces of thread that couldn't possibly be big enough...

My life changing trip

The trip I went on was not one very far from home. It started on June 17 in a town called Tuscaloosa. I was feeling tired and sick so my mom took me to the doctor and I had double pneumonia. When they told me I had to be admitted into the hospital for a few days, I cried, I begged my mom not to make me go, it's like I knew something wasn't going to go well. But I had to go. Upon admission,...
