     I live in Orrick, Missouri, a town recognizably not holding back its small town qualities. From its gossip filled restraunts to its teenage filled stage, why wouldn't you want to come visit? With an amasing population of about seven hundred and fifty and a total area of a little under one point...

  • Eiffel_Tower_by_LadyofRoyMustang

      The first day in France we went all the way to the top of the Eiffel Tower which was 899 feet tall. It was built for the World’s Fair in 1889 to commemorate the French Revolution.  The second day we went to the second highest point in Paris which is the Notre Dame Cathedral. While in France, we...

    'Times Square!' a man cried as he rapidly yanked open the door of a yellow taxi and carelessly tossed our luggage into the trunk. My dad and I hurried into the cave of black leather and we lurched away. A gruff cab driver demanded the name of our hotel as he shrewdly maneuvered through the flood of...

    I walked down a street yesterday. It had an energetic and charismatic crowd with warm smiles and laughter that filled the air. As I walked further my nose smelled a pleasant aroma that tickled my fancy and aroused my slumbering stomach. It was pulled pork with a distinct BBQ smell. I eagerly...

  • Pretending to be Afraid of the Cats in the Old City District of Jerusalem

    Israel is a place that means many different things to many different people. When I made my first visit to the Promised Land, I came hoping to gain new perspective on a country that’s experienced so much conflict and strife over the years. But I didn’t really notice anything obvious during my week...

    Nestled in the quiet suburbs of Phoenix, Arizona is the unexpected gem of the city of Surprise. This small town is my home, a place with a culture and people I have come to greatly love. Surprise is near to my heart in numerous ways, and I know that any traveler will agree after their visit....

      The anticipation of traveling aboard hit me as I left the car, waved, and said my goodbyes. Just a mere two hours ago, I was giving a graduation speech and reminiscing about how great middle school had been.  Now I was walking into the Philadelphia International Airport, getting ready to...

        There is a place of beauty, nature, and adventure that is unknown to most. A place where you can climb mountains, float rivers, hike various trails, and become in tune with nature. This glorious place is called Idaho, a Northwest state with a small amount of citizens and a large amount of...

    In but a few hours, I had managed culture shock of the highest degree: I had traveled from the wintry Milwaukee airport, full of businessmen typing on laptops, college students waiting for Starbucks, and families wheeling giant suitcases, to the blistering hot, ramshackle airport in Port-Au-...

    Brain Confusion Being fully immersed in a language that is unknown to one’s mind sounds a lot easier than it is. As I spent a whole summer in Germany, I was terrified by how difficult it was to listen to a foreign language 24/7. The experience was perhaps the most confusing and incredible...
