An Essay About Road Trip

- “Now, on this road trip, my mind seemed to unwrinkle, to breathe, to present to itself a cure for a disease it had not, until now, known it had” (Elizabeth Berg, The Year of Pleasures). In this novel, a woman takes a road trip to escape the pressures and hardships of life. I believe this quote is very true when it comes to taking a road trip. When I hear the words “road trip,” I automatically think of the new adventures I am going to experience. This leads to the question: How can road trips give you more life experiences....   [tags: Trip, Travel, Experience, Happiness]

Symbol, Allusion, and Myth in Irving Layton's Rhine Boat Trip

- 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.

Persuasive Essay : A Trip On A Trip In The Summer

Essay On A Road Trip

- A Road Trip through History Summertime family road trips often contribute to teenage angst. Being cooped up in a car for long stretches of time can become the subject of nightmares for me. When my parents suggested we take a good old-fashioned, multi-state road trip, I might have groaned. I did not anticipate, however, that we would catch glimpses of history that would spark my interest and enthusiasm. After twenty-three hours in the car, I discovered a renewed appreciation for history, for our country and its people, and most of all-I did not hate it....   [tags: Automobile, Lincoln Memorial, National Mall]

My Family's Trip to Spain

- I had been to Spain before and knew it was the perfect place if you wanted sun, peace and quiet. As soon as I got off the plane I could feel the humidity and smell sweat in the air, even though the airport was air-conditioned. Our rental car wasn’t big enough to fit all three of our suitcases in the boot so we had to put the third, and the biggest, on the backseat of the car making a barrier between me and my younger brother. Sleep came soon as I had no sleep on the journey so far and was rudely awoken at 4:30 in the morning to get to the airport....   [tags: Personal Experience, Personal Narrative]

Glancing out the window at a passing shop's clock, I was surprised to see that it was already 5p.m. As a natural instinct, I turned round to speak to my best friend, April, before remembering that this bus, unlike usual ones, were single seaters....   [tags: short story]

Metropolitan Museum of Art Trip

- One of my personal favorite days of this semester was the class trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. It was a long journey to get there, especially with having to walk all the way from Penn Station, but it was a nice day so I couldn’t really complain. Plus, it was worth it because I love museums. The Met is absolutely beautiful, inside and out. I could not believe how big it was and how many galleries there actually were. I can’t wait to go back and see all of them. Our trip mostly focused upon Greek and Roman art, and I found it to be thoroughly interesting....   [tags: gallery, chariot, sculptures]
