    It is crazy to think that it has been four years since my family and I hopped on a plane and went to Hawaii. Every moment of the trip is still fresh in my mind. It seems like it was just yesterday when I stepped of the plane where we were welcomed into the Oaho, Hawaii with leis. I dreamt about...

        Every year for the past eight years, my family has taken a road trip to Boulder, Colorado.  This year was no different but was fun and special.  We left on August third and drove from Riverside to Kolob Canyon.  Kolob Canyon is a small part of Zion National Park.  We took a small hike where we...

    We’re running late! This thought raced through my mind as I waited for my friend’s mom to pull up to the university. Throughout the whole trip, I had been waiting for this school. Sure the other ones were interesting to look at and it was even pretty cool to stroll around the beautiful campuses,...

    The white picket fences have become stained with dullness and predictability. The porches and decks have collapsed in coziness, and the SUVs and minivans have lost their new car smell and shine. Even the few authentic pizza joints have become exploited by tourist brochures and Instagram.I have...

    In the words of St.Augustine, "The world is a book and those who do not travel only read one page." This statement is one that symbolically expresses traveling quite well. This can directly relate to the saying , "Don't Judge A Book by its Cover" . It's just like simply reading the cover of an...

        Since my dad has been stationed in Germany for three years, I get to see a lot of Europe. This summer we went on a trip to Bavaria and I got to see a lot of places. I had the best experience ever because it was something different to see. I got to visit the highest mountain in Germany, also...

    Aboard the plane to the Dominican Republic, my mind was engulfed with images of barren cities and hunger stricken citizens. The entire demeanor of the country that I envisioned was desolate and defeated. When I stepped into the airport terminal out of the air conditioned United Airlines jet, I hit...

    I am not really a nature-lover person, just the thought of insects crawling up my legs and stepping on gooey mud when hiking up a mountain grosses me out, but this trip was an exception.

    As I stood on the top of the mountain on a chilly August morning, I knew I was learning some of the most important lessons I’d ever learn in my life. Two nights before, I had arrived in Santa Cruz, Bolivia with a missions group from my church. I had been nearly forced into the trip by my father,...
