    I’m shy and quiet. Basically, your run of the mill introvert. But when I travel I’m nothing like this. For some reason, escaping the familiarity of my relatively boring, predictable, day-to-day life makes me feel more alive and more outgoing. When I travel, I feel like I’m finally in touch with...

    Featuring red, yellow, green and blue cards numbered from zero to nine, Uno is a well-known game. I remember sitting cross-legged on the tile floor in kindergarten as classmates tried to teach me the rules, but I never understood. Who would have guessed that more than a decade later I would learn...

         During my life, I have been to many different places at many different times.  Each time I have been to a new place, I always bring something from that culture back with me.  Whenever in a new environment, you have to remember that they may not be as lucky as us here in the United States. ...

        One of my most memorable and personal travel experiences was this past summer when my youth group from church and I went on a mission trip to Nashville, Tennessee from July 2009. While we were there we did a lot of things we wouldn’t normally do in our day-to-day lives. We stepped out of our...

    There were sunflowers growing out of the cracks of the rubble, and the blue sky beat down hot on the pavement. The van jostled and tumbled. Shannon and Adrienne were singing. Cinderella said to Snow White, how did love get so off course…” I leaned my forehead against the glass-cool window, and...

    In hindsight, Rome probably would have killed us. Our week in Tuscany was to be strictly rural, as mandated by my outdoorsy mother. Although she had waxed poetic about the narrow country roads described in her ladies’ book club favorite “Under the Tuscan Sun”, she was a lot less enthusiastic...

    As my family and I piled into our big, white van, there was so much excitement in the air you could practically taste it. I felt like an eager little child on Christmas Eve- I seriously could not wait any longer! The ten hour drive to California felt like an eternity. We were finally going on the...

    Upon graduating from 8th grade, I had the opportunity to travel with my best friend, a few classmates and teachers/chaperones to Europe. Through Educational Tours, we traveled to London, Paris and Barcelona. We left July 6, 2008 and returned July 15, 2008. My dad told me that he didn't go to...

    Sopping wet, wringing our clothes of pounds of rainwater, our group of nine stepped into the eclectic gift shop of the Polar Caves Park in Rumney, New Hampshire. My tennis shoes had accumulated enough water to quench the thirst of a horse and my toes were sticking to each other like they had been...
