It was a nice summer morning we I was all of a suden shoke like turbulence on a plane to wake up. It turns out I slept threw my alarm to wake up for the day. It was about 11:00 am and today we were heading to Florida and our flight takes off at 1:00 pm. You may think that we had time to make the airport in Milwaukee but, we had to drive all the way to Chicago, Illinois because there was no flight for Florida in Milwaukee. Luckily I had packed the day before with the rest of my family so all we had to do was wait for our aunt Lisa to take us to the aiport in Chicago. She showed up five minutes later with a mini van and there was about seven of us jammed in there. It was alright for me because in our family if you called “shot-gun” or “I

It is not often that you get to wake up to a perfectly painted peach, pink and purple coated sky, witness the feel of a salty sea breeze brush up against your skin or stare out into the atmosphere, trying to figure out at which shade of blue the ocean concludes and where the sky begins. Had this been a few months ago I would be exploring Castle Hill in Budapest, making headway towards the glaciers of Argentine Patagonia or even tasting my way through Greece. But instead, I will pack my bags with a heavy heart to kickoff my expedition to the place that needs me the most. With my ticket in hand, I would board my flight to Houston, Texas.

My California Trip Ever since I found out my softball team could make it to California for Nationals I knew this would be our goal for the summer. Now here is where the challenging part came in, we only had three chances to make it to California. We made it, we were lucky enough to make our goal in the third chance.
One year ago this morning on April 11/2016 I arrived to Charlotte, North Carolina after four day trip on Amtrack train. From San Jose, California to Charlotte, North Carolina.
I went to Orlando, Florida. First we got lunch at the airport then we got ready for our plane to leave. Then we got on the plane after half an hour of sitting and waiting. Finally after a long plane ride we were in Florida. After we got our bag we went across the street to get our rental car.
So far, my trip has been a fairly easy one. I left home on April 5, and I believe it's been 75 days. I didn't want to leave Cleveland right then since business was good but I have to avoid the winter months. Thankfully, we avoided a majority of the rain. I heard from men a few wagons ahead that they were soaked from the rain meaning that we barely missed it. I am a little worried about my health, though. A friend of mine on the wagon died from cholera, and I'm praying that I don't get
If, I could choose where I would like to visit I would chose Washington, D.C. I went to Washington, D.C. for the summer I would like to go to Washington to get on the Metro, and so I can go to the malls and the amusement parks. This is why I would love to go Washington D.C again this summer.
This summer we traveled to Cleveland Ohio. Most people look at you with a confused look on their face when you tell them that you are going there. This is probably because they have no idea what there is to see in this city by Lake Erie.
From the end of my junior year through my senior year I have been driving up to Portland, usually bringing my dad or some friends to help out with Bridgetown Ministry's Nightstrike. I have helped out with this organization for eight weeks on Thursday nights, reaching out and building relationships with Portland's homeless. In the mix of people there are always faces you recognize from past weeks which gives you a chance to grow deeper relationships with them. There was a little 4 year old boy named Alex that I would see every week and every time he would show me the new tricks he had taught his dog or his tricks on toys like his skateboard. If I did not have so many prior commitments on Thursdays, I would love to be down there every week.
Three days, two nights is how long we’ll be staying in Portland. First we have to get through the morning briefing, survive the excruciating safety talk on how “Portland is not Salem”, and how “Portland is a much more dangerous place”. These few minutes will probably be the longest minutes of the trip, not including the ride there, but I obtained some audiobooks the day before for this one hour ride. We start to move our bags from our classroom to the cars we’ll be riding in, six can ride in Mr. Abel’s car, our advisor, fourteen on the bus, and another six in the Mrs. Jones's car, she volunteered as chaperone. I decide to ride in the bus, but my friends who were both crushing on the same girl go in Mr. Abel’s car, that was probably the most awkward car ride of the century.
Throughout this course, the history of Portland was discussed and I found it extremely interesting. In my high school I took only one class on history our side of my state and it was the simple world history and we never covered the histories of other states within the United States. With in the Hawaiian culture, our history is so important and we study it constantly because we feel that it is information that is crucial to knowing who you are and where you come from. So when I came to Portland and I learned that this state has a history too it surprised me a little because I realized how much we as highschool students were sheltered from the rest of the world and their histories. Though learning the history of Portland and how it became the beautiful city that it is today really was exciting. Learning about all of the events and obstacles a city faces to create such a diverse environment like this is truly humbling and made me appreciate the journey so much more.
