    Four years ago, my mother took my friend and me to Six Flags America in Maryland. It was the year I decided to brave Superman: Ride of Steel, the tallest, most imposing roller coaster in the park. Rising twenty stories high at its peak, the Superman was clearly visible from the parking lot. It...

    “Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. We’d like to welcome you onboard British Midland’s flight 8180 to Beirut …” In all my years on this earth, I have never felt anything quite like this.

    As author Mary Lasswell once said, “I am forced to conclude that God made Texas on his day off, for pure entertainment, just to prove that all that diversity could be crammed into one section of earth by a really top hand.” Anyone who has ever driven across Texas would know: there is little need...

    I have a passion for discovering distant cultures. Growing up in my family and not craving the adventure of exploring new exotic places would have been incredibly difficult. We have had amazing experiences as a family in Costa Rica and Panama, but what solidified my desire for travel was my solo...

               Key West, The place that my family prefers to travel to the most, is a place of relaxation and adventure that never seems to get old. Our first visit to Key West got us hooked the moment we stepped off of the cruise ship. I was 13 at the time and since then, we have made an additional 3...

    Hola.  Como esta.  Gracias.  Uno.  Quesadilla.  Adios.  Those sparse words that completed my whole Spanish vocabulary sounded rigid with my American tongue.  I couldn’t roll my r’s so gracias always echoed as grass-ee-ahs. Though I could only muster “where is the bathroom,” I wanted to see my...

  • Art Piece From My Time at The Oxbow School

    As my sophomore year came to an end, I was granted the chance of a lifetime to travel across the country and continue advancing my studies in art. I had acquired this wonderful privilege from my art teachers at the Boston Arts Academy, who every year, as a incentive and reward, grant two rising...

        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...
