    If seeing the Pope in the Rome airport, visiting the statue of David in Florence, and eating ice cream everyday until your stomach couldn’t take it anymore doesn’t make for the best trip ever, then I don’t know what does. A vacation isn’t just a time to get away and escape reality, it’s an...

    Sixty-five years is a long time, but it is still not enough time to wash away the stigma of being associated with "The East." When people think of countries in Eastern Europe, they think of dirty, squalid living conditions, but much has changed since the end of World War II. As a junior in high...

    “So, this is what she saw.” My sister’s voice broke the awed silence as I tore my gaze away from the beautiful, sun-filled canyon. I imagined my mother’s face, decades earlier, glowing as she reached the top of a hill, pausing to absorb beauty so magnificent it seemed to belong to Heaven and not...

    What I recall most about eating my first real French crepe was how delicious it was. The jam’s flavor doesn’t stand out to me as much as how the crepe melted in my mouth. It was pancakes to the extreme and the sweet jam sent shivers down my spin. Now, that I think of it, it was strawberry jam....

    For some the ultimate vacation is soaking up the sun, lying in the warm sand off of the shores of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. For others a favorite vacation spot might be hitting the slopes in Vail, Colorado. For me, the best vacation was not spending the week at the top of a penthouse suite, but...
