    This trip began on March 7th, 2012 and ended on March 10th, 2012; set for the “Big Apple” aka New York City, with nine women, including myself.  Yes, nine estrogen-filled women.  It sounded like a nightmare before it took place, but with assumptions set aside, it would be unforgettable because we...

  • Belgium_-_Travelbigo

      During the summer of 2009 my mother, sister, and I went on a trip to Belgium to visit our family. The flight there was hectic, as flights over eight hours usually are, but nothing can beat the excitement of arriving in Belgium. There to greet us were my aunt and grandmother (Oma). As usual, we...

                                   The Trip that Almost Didn't Happen Two years had passed and not one other student from the school had signed up for the 10 day Andalusia trip to Spain through EF Tours.

    I woke up at 5:00 AM, earlier than I ever would have back home in Kent, Washington. I jumped up, ran across the floor, slammed the screen door open, and sprinted up the stairs to...the roof. I took care to avoid the cot and rocks on the ground, and picked up a pink, tattered kite from the gorund...

  • A trek down from Masada

    My grandmother scowled at me as we boarded the airplane. Much to my vexation, my subtle acting had not payed off; she had seen right through my futile smiles and unavailing grins. “Family fun,” “eight-hour air-conditionless bus tour,” and “an authentic Jewish experience” were not akin to enjoyment...

  • The Beethoven-Haus

    The rain steadily fell in misty sheets, so that the landscape was partly obscured by a dewy veil. Our train chugged through damp German villages, swaying gently from side to side. The grey horizon showed no sign of a mood change.HONORABLE MENTION 2015 FTF TEEN TRAVEL WRITING SCHOLARSHIPOne of my...

  • Cologne Cathedral

    June 12, 2012 8:30 a.m. MSP Airport, Security Checkpoint I was crying. The trip to Germany hadn't even begun, but my eyes were wet as my friends and I waited in the long queue to go through security. Though it would be my second time in Germany, the first time having been two years prior with my...

    Two spring breaks ago I had the best vacation of my life. Aside from going on our normal vacation to Ocean City, we decided to take a cruise to Cozumel, Grand Cayman, and Jamaica. I was introduced to different cultures, foods, and entertainment. It was wonderful to see how my way of life differs...

         Summer vacations are a big deal for me. Our family plans one big trip for the summer and since I'm going off to college next year, every one counts. Last July, it brought us to British Colombia, Canada.      First, you must know more about me. I am lucky enough to have traveled across the...

    In November of 2010 I visited New York City.  That’s right; I went north (from sunny, warm Las Vegas) in the winter.  It sounds like a crazy thing to do, but it was worth every one of my frozen fingers and toes.  If you can help it though, you would probably enjoy your trip to NYC more if you don...
