Walking down the narrow road of a small village in China, I felt the rough dirt scratch against my new sneakers. I watched as a little girl with smiles and black matted hair and ripped clothes ran along barefoot. I witnessed children in a small school house practicing their English with barely...Tags:
Many believe that you must use tons of money and go to the best places to have the best trip. My experiences would say differently. In reality, a family will have the most fun with what they make of it and a good positive attitude toward the trip. Four years ago my family as well as my two best...Tags:
I didn’t know someone could grow up so fast in ten days. Usually it takes years, especially for someone at my age. My select choir called the RH Singers was invited to tour Vienna, Bratislava and Prague and sing in some of the cities’ most beautiful churches. I’m seventeen years old and now after...Tags:
While on my travels to the U.K with the People to People Student Ambassador Program I was most excited about going to Ireland.

'There are three ways to travel up to the top of the city,' explained our tour guide, 'by mule up a path, by...Tags:
Family vacations can feel like a boring obligation. Especially with teenagers who would rather spend their summer days on the beach tanning with friends than on a vacation with dear old mom and dad. Being an expert on this subject, I expected no less of the vacation to San Francisco that my parents...Tags:
One piece of advice that had been re-iterated to me throughout the last few years, is that I should travel any chance that I get. That’s why this summer that’s exactly what I did. I started off the summer by going to Georgia to help my sister in-law with my nephew, while my brother was deployed to...Tags:
When many people think of Florida they think of the hot sun, beautiful beaches and natives walking around in tank tops, flip flops and shorts. They also believe that the only city of any importance in the sunshine state is Miami. Any time I tell anyone I live in Florida, the first question they...Tags:
