    Having never been out of the contiguous United States in my fourteen years, I was extremely excited to hear that my family was going to, Culebra, an island off of Puerto Rico for spring break. My sister and I had had a steady diet of murky-watered beaches with brown sand, which had been fun but not...

    One trip in particular stands out from our vacation in Crete: our trip to Spinalonga (spin-a-long-a) Island, a rocky formation just off the coast that is famous for its Venetian fortress and deserted village (both decaying) .  Initially I wasn’t interested in going, partially because my stomach and...

    This previous June I went on a missions trip to Guatemala with ten other students and five teachers from my high school, an incredible and eye-opening experience that changed me forever. Many people applied and few got accepted, and when I received my acceptance letter I was overwhelmed with...

                “The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only one page.” This is a quote I strongly believe in. Every time a travel opportunity pops up, I jump at it. Every traveling opportunity is a great learning experience. My trip to Bad Königshofen, Germany with the Arlington,...

    When my girlfriend and I went to visit her family in Poland, we traveled to many different places but the one in particular I enjoyed the most was Sopot. Instead of driving there by car, we got bus tickets, jumped on the bus, and shortly we arrived at our destination. The time we spent in Sopot,...
