    YOLO…it’s an acronym meaning “you only live once.”  When my school announced a trip to Europe which would include 4 days in London, England, my friends and I knew this was the experience of a lifetime that we couldn’t miss…and it proved to be just that!  One day stood out more than the rest...

    Music is my life, but when I think of 'music' and its various locations, I always seem to overlook Nashville, Tennessee. Last April, my high school band and choir got a chance to truly understand where some of music's roots are. The original purpose for coming to Nashville was to be critiqued on...

    It all started on March 1st, 2007. We packed up our house in a big u-haul truck and left Pennsylvania to go to Big Sky Montana in order to help a group of people who needed homes and jobs.

    At 2 o’clock our plane landed at Toncontin International Airport in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. As I peered through a small window on the right side of the plane, I could see the city rising up all around me. Upon exiting the plane, it was clear I was no longer within the comforts of southern Tennessee...

    During the summer of 2009 for two and a half weeks, I took a trip that went to two different countries; one is where the Kiwi is their native bird and the other is referred to as the Down Under. I was fortunate enough to travel to New Zealand and Australia last summer with a People to People...

    A sparkling ocean of diamonds were scattered evenly on black velvet in front of us, just for us. The lights crawled up and down boulevards, bioluminescent ants navigating hairline streets, their horns and sound pollution reduced to a whooshing static at 1,250 feet.

We traveled with our cousins and grandparents from San Jose and stayed with other cousins who live in Virginia. It was like one big family reunion! For the first half of the trip we stayed with our cousins...
