They can change the way you look at your country forever. The USA is especially marvelous, because of how much your landscape changes the farther you travel and how different and unique each state is. This is my experience of the cross country road trip I took with my family. We stuffed our mini van full of everything we would need, clothes, food, camping gear, and more. We spent about a month, planning all of the places we
My family trip to the Colorado mountains last summer was inspiring. The road before us seems to stretch for eternity. Driving away from home, the anticipation to get there is overpowering. The best way to pass time is singing along to dad’s 1980’s music. As the billboards flash by I can only catch
“In honor of our one year anniversary, we are going camping!” “Camping? Where? We live in the middle of the city!” “We are going to drive to the Appalachian Mountains, about forty-five minutes from here! It will take about 4 days: two days up, two days down.” Jack seemed so excited, Taylor could not possibly say no. She had always loved adventure, so she thought she would give hiking a try.
But, Dad said that we had to drive around and check out all the good places, just to make sure that we were in the best area. This was partially understandable, but since I am a teenager I'm not supposed to understand anything! So, we spent another several hours driving. We went up and down through the mountains and then we saw it. The spot was beautiful; it was right on the edge of a vertical drop-off, over looking everything.
I went I Borough Market where I purchased a duck confit wrap from Le Marché du Quartier and a prawn wrap from Applebees Fish. Walking back I was sad because it did not set in yet that is was our last full day in London. Later that night we had a closing dinner with our professor and others who influenced our trip abroad. We had copious amounts of wine and reflected on the semester with some delicious food. That night I had to pack which was a big struggle.
With the snow behind us and Baloo curled up next to me, exhausted from a long day of frolicking through a winter wonderland. I take a minute to carefully file away all of the sights, sounds, and smells that we experienced during our latest snowy adventure in Payson, Arizona. All of the new trails that we took, the sounds of the water fall breaking over the icy rocks, the birds chirping, and the sweet smelling air, all get placed carefully into my own little collection that I can revisit at any moment. Payson will always be one of my favorite places to take a short drive with Baloo to enjoy the beautiful snowy landscape.

My family decided to drive all the way to Tucson, Arizona in one day, so it took about 16 hours before we reached our destination. The annoying part about this trip was how hot the car would get, and how annoying my family is after traveling for more than two hours. We did have fun though on the way back, when we stopped in Palm Desert. My family and I appreciated Palm Desert because we stayed at a nice resort where we played ping pong and swam for
Breathing was pretty much the last thing on my mind…until that snowy night in December. It was a night that started like any other night. My department store job at Sears left much to be desired, but the pay was alright. As expected for an evening in a mall during the Christmas season, the store was like a madhouse and the customers behaved as though they should be committed to one. Around seven p.m., I got a bit overwhelmed with all the festivities, so I found a quiet corner in the back of my department, sat down in the floor, and began to fold sweaters.
I adore the sensation of walking in the snow, breathing that refreshing, cool scent in through my frozen nostrils. I love when that final bell goes freeing the teenagers off into their Christmas holiday. First thing I do is go shopping. It’s funny, I cannot stand shopping; meanwhile when it’s for friends and family at Christmas time, I never feel like I have enough time. I love curling up by the fireplace, or taking a hot bath after the mountain of snow you just had to shovel through.
