I have stood on the precipice of one of the most fantastic natural wonders of the world. The magnificent roaring waters of Iguacu Falls cascaded down cliffs all around us. The cool mist provided temporary relief from the burdening heat of Brazil’s autumn. Sometimes the greatest moments of life...Tags:
The summer of 2011, my family decided to take a trip to Kauai, Hawaii for one week. My parents, my college-aged brother Ian, my twin sister Abbey, my grandfather Al and I crowded into a suite at Marriott’s Waiohai Beach Club in the beach town of Poipu, on the South Shore. I slept on a floral...Tags:
I’m the girl that has spent most of her life ignoring my surroundings. One day, I dreamt of something beautiful. It consisted of palm trees, salty beaches, seagulls, and movie stars. The buildings were gorgeous; the people were so proper and so sophisticated. They wore their Versace...Tags:
My family and I have a tendency to go on very long road trips, pulling our pop-up trailer behind a large van. Though we live in Virginia, we drove to Alaska and back, with many stops in between one year. Another year we went up to Maine and through eastern Canada and a few years ago we went across...Tags:

So it began, our journey into the heart of Malawi. Our agenda - painting schools, visiting an...Tags:
Can I just say that 600 words is not nearly enough room to write down everything I want to say, but here I go anyway. Nearly 3 years ago, I traveled with People to People, an educational travel program that promoted learning of other cultures around the world. I traveled to places like London,...Tags:
Sugar Land, the name speaks for its self. Not only is this city as sweet as it sounds, but the people that live there are not too shabby either. Sugar Land is located in the Beautiful State of Texas and offers so much to the tourists that visit this area. I know what you are thinking, “Oh we can’...Tags:
The BBC has four channels. Add ITV and Channel 5 for a grand total of six lousy viewing options on the 'telly.' Pub grub is not as bad as previously thought. A cup of tea solves everything. Always take a brolly if it is spitting. Football is life and cricket is a gentleman's sport. Harrods is for...Tags:
