    For my 16th birthday, we planned the most wonderful trip ever to Hong Kong. OMG!!!! I can’t tell you how long it took for the day to finally arrive but at last we were on our way. We left JFK Airport, New York to Frankfurt, Germany (stopover) to Hong Kong, China...

      I DISTINCTLY remember being squished on my popped, twin sized, air mattress, facing Kirk and Sara. We’d grown up in the same church since I was 5 and I had seen their faces a dozen times, but it was different this time. This time we had worked together in the rain and dirt, we had seen each...

    My eyes wearily fluttered open as a wave of queasiness surged through me. Miniature balloons were inflating and popping simultaneously in both ears. My heart was somersaulting on a trampoline, flying upwards into my throat. After a seventeen-hour plane ride, we were landing. After seventeen hours...

    This summer's end, I was invited to join into the life and glamour of two most fabulous cities of the west coast - Los Angeles, California and Las Vegas, Nevada. When I first heard of the two cities, two words came to my mind - luxury and excitement. I was excited to join the millions of people in...

    “We are going to do what?!” Have you ever experienced a moment in time when your heart is suddenly jolted and stops altogether? I imagine mine did as the future of my trip began to unveil before me. Our planned itinerary, given to us back at home, was one which promised to create unforgettable...

    Road trip! This time more prepared, lengthier and more sightseeing. Seriously, what’s a road trip without sightseeing, it’s a sign that we learned substantially from our last trip to Canada. My parents decided to save gas by commuting through a small, blue Nissan, a cozy five seated car. Just...

    Before last summer, I never imagined that a person could love a "place." People, surely, but places, no. It’s odd how the most significant experiences of your life sneak up on you, because I wasn’t trembling with excitement, per se.             I was more concerned with the looming solo flight to...

    I'd always lived in California. I'd never been anywhere else -- not even out of state! -- and I can't imagine living anywhere else. This, I suppose, is exactly why my mother intended to visit her native Taiwan this summer -- and drag my brother and me along. I abruptly fainted. I'll say it right...
