All I did was mention that I wanted to visit China, and my mom just had to bring up her idea of me going to the overseas Chinese teachers’ training course in Da Lian. My older sister took the teachers’ training course in Beijing summer of 2007, so my mom was hoping that I’d follow in her footsteps...Tags:
Greenville, South Carolina has many marvelous reasons as to why someone would want to travel here. For starters, Greenville has an excellent downtown. The downtown area has many shops that are all walking distance to each other. Many of the boutiques are only found in Greenville and some even...Tags:

Last summer my dad got the crazy idea to try biking from our house in Chanhassen, MN to Rapid City, SD and to take me along with him. I had never gone on a bike trip any larger than a day trip, after which there was plenty of time to recover. I didn’t really realize what I was getting into until I...Tags:

Freddy (my dad’s partner) was so excited to take all of us on one of the many dolphin watches that are available to tourists. The original dolphin watch that...Tags:
