The most enjoyable and extensive trip I have taken so far was in 2001 when I was ten; I traveled all over the USA for five weeks! Everything about the trip was enjoyable. Even getting ready was enjoyable. I had to take into consideration the multitude of different circumstances I would be in such as the weather, places I would visit, and what I would be doing. Then I assisted my mom and grandpa to pack all the other stuff we needed like food, coolers, maps, and accessories for the car. It sounds like a lot of work but, as a little kid, I immensely enjoyed helping to get ready for the trip. My anticipation of this trip was great. I could not get it off my mind.

With the wind flowing smoothly around me, standing inside a massive redwood tree hidden in time and safe from the world, and the cool nights and open spaces with nothing around me except a vast universe above my head. When I am on the road traveling from place to place, I do not seem to have limits. Nothing will ever be better than actually being there.

- Symbol, Allusion, and Myth in Irving Layton's Rhine Boat Trip "...haunted/by the ghosts of Jewish mothers/looking for their ghostly Children" (Layton). Though physical evidence of the Holocaust is now slightly limited, as time tends to destroy the tangible, the cry for justice and the remembrance of systematic genocide by a sadistic people enacting ignorant dogma will ring indefinitely throughout the world. Humanity will always be guilty of the atrocities that it instigates. Irving Layton, in his poem, Rhine Boat Trip, depicts the eternal evidence of the Nazi Crime, a stain of culpability that is reducible from all who have witnessed it.... [tags: Rhine Boat Trip Essays]

- Trip Hop Lush soundscapes infused with a rich layering of soulful guitar riffs, jazzy horns and atmospheric strings, interwoven with innovative sampling and grounded by a hip-hop beat, slowed to a brooding moody tempo. Words can barely frame the complexity that is Trip Hop music. It is a genre so startlingly refreshing and innovative that the term Trip Hop itself only came into existence in the mid 90s, in an attempt to describe a musical style that defies all known musical categories.
