    The ONLY reason I’m going is to visit my best friend at college, I told myself. Why else would I spend my senior year spring break sitting in a car for 12 hours with people I don’t even know? I don’t even have to socialize with my best friend’s mom, little brother, grandmother, and mom’s...

    It started with a statement: “It’s cold. Let’s go back to the hotel.”  It was late afternoon and we were in Boston Commons in April.  We were wrapped in our warmest sweatshirts and three pairs of socks in 50-degree weather.  Being from sunny Southern California, where 60-degrees is near freezing...

    I come from the land of coffee addicted hipsters and computer geeks. Locals have dubbed it “The 206”, but it is more commonly referred to as Seattle, Washington.

    Calling all beach goers and outdoorsmen! It is time to save up some money, collect your gear, and head on out to Pensacola Beach, Florida. Don’t forget your sunscreen though.

    I remember being there. The very grounds where many people were sent to their deaths. It felt so unreal seeing all that remains. You know that moment that you could not believe that a part of history actually happened right where you are standing? I had that moment when I went to Auschwitz two...

  • The Rope Bridge and I

    Sunshine that feels as though the world is telling you to live. Bright green fields and farms that you can’t get away from. And Helen, who has been by my side since day one, venturing into alleyways and trying to decipher Gaelic messages. Small town pubs where locals sit and watch the football game...

    Within the fast life of California living, there is a peaceful serenity where travelers can pause from life to admire all the magnificent aspects of nature’s beauty. On June 16, 2012, I traveled to South Lake Tahoe in northern California to experience my first camping trip. Upon arrival I was...

In reality, most of the population is poor, jobless, uneducated, in need of healthcare, and lacking everyday essentials like food and clean water. I visited the Dominican...
