It was so cold, but we all still went in the water. After a little time in the water we went to look for sea shells. I found a sea shell that was white and then it faded into a light red, I still have it today. The next day we had to leave, which was a bummer because I had a really great time.
The Salt Epidemic I loved to travel it was always a was a way for me to get away from the stressful life of school and sports competing to take up the most time meaning I get no time to pretty much rest. But this trip was way different than any other trip I went on the usual trip was relaxing and fun just spending time with either my mom or my dad. But this trip had a different vibe to it we were going to florida with more people than just me mom and my brother Aidan it was seven people coming counting us so I figured I would have no space but I was not aware that I would be picked on by two kids younger than me
The first time I went to Mackinac Island was a truly unforgettable experience. Lots of people have always told me “We can’t go, we can’t fit the wheelchair on the boat.” But during last summer in August we decided to go Mackinaw City instead. I was super excited for it, I don’t why I had been to the city parts a thousand times over. That and I was sick as a dog with an unexplainable cold but that didn’t stop mom from saying “okay we’re going.”
Alabama Trip My mom and and dad told me in December that we were going to Gulf Shores, Alabama to visit my grandparents. Gulf Shores is the southernmost town in Alabama, located on the north coast of the Gulf of Mexico. I have been there twice when I was little. I remember that I collected seashells and went swimming with Boppa in the pool.
This year the weather and sea state was good, allowing more swimmers to make it to the finish line at Hemingway’s Restaurant on the eastern shore. We were needed by two swimmers this year. They all seem to come aboard with disappointment and resignation and we bring water and a towel and whatever else we have to offer them. Finding a place to sit, they settle in to wait for the end of the race, when our boat won’t be needed on the water anymore and we can take them to the marina where their supporters wait to console and offer solace to them.
we stop at a couple of markets to buy souvenirs,by then we were all exhausted so we decided to call it a night. Morning came and we started are day, we went for a jet ski ride at the beach the beach water was amazing it was so clear and blue I just wanted to stay there all day long after the beach we all went to a resort the resort had lots of different things to do the first thing we did was swim underneath big caves the caves were dark and the water was so cold, after the caves we went snorkeling I have to say that was the best part of the trip I saw tons of different sea creatures I got to touch live stingray even though I was so scared I had to do
One day when I was in my trip to Dominican Republic I looked outside the window,mami can we go to that fish restaurant I said” yes we are going there. When we stop at the fish restaurant I saw maracas My mom, Step dad, baby brother and I were eating I asked the water are those maracas for free no there only for 30$.Can I have those maracas please ok. When the food came I was playing with the maracas, my mom said stop you almost woke the baby up you can play with that when we get home eat your food ok. I said to myself this food is amazing.
During the first drop off an the island Cole quickly wanted them to leave with no goodbyes Edwin and Garvey climbed aboard the boat, as they waved towards Cole as he waved back he extended his middle finger as the skiff drove off. On the second trip Garvey and Edwin spent a few days on the island to help Cole get prepared for the months ahead, on the last day everybody was in a happy, jolly mood, they laughed and joked around. This time the skiff left Cole only felt the fear of being alone. Coles development throughout the novel has not only impacted his perspective of himself and personality but also how others act and feel about being around
I was told I was going on a missions trip to the Dominican Republic and I was excited for the pretty water and I had these high expectations that I would soon find out would not be met. The day came that I was heading to this mission trip. Fast-forward to the 3rd day that I was there I went to the slum village. I pulled up and saw the mud roads
My trip to Texas Texas was a surprise from my grandma for my sister’s birthday. It was a 2 day trip so we spent 4 days there. Texas had tons of stuff to do, My favorite thing was getting to build a sand castle. We also got to go on a fairy which is a boat that takes a slow ride. We were able to see dolphin’s and feed seagulls that were very hungry.
My parents and I moved to the Dominican Republic when I was thirteen years old. Living there as a young American came with many challenges. One of the biggest threats against foreigners is violence. Within my first years of living in Dominican Republic, I had experienced two incidents at it firsthand. The first incident happen a week before school began, I was mugged by two assailants; man on a motorcycle and another man on foot.
As years passed, my English got better and my work experience contributed to my mental, personal, emotional and professional growth. Today, I don’t have to repeat what I say and it is ironic that I feel more American than Colombia; especially after I got my U.S citizenship and after I married my U.S Navy Corpsman. It has been almost 12 years on my life in this country and I still feel like I don’t really belong anywhere. Identity is that aspect of your life that is been affected and hard to clarify when you move from one country to another, especially if is during the youth. 4 months I ago, I visited my motherland, I felt home, but my people didn’t see me the same way; family and friends noticed a different accent on me; as we had conversations, I noticed that I needed some of English words to express myself better, I did not feel complicated identified with my Colombian friends’ opinions or some of their views, I did not remember what my favorite mall or restaurant was in Colombia; after that trip, I felt like I lost my original identity while I was in the States.
I am from Colombia, the land where the flowers blossom all year around in so many colors and shapes that allow us to export them, where the cities are surround by mountains, where the majority of the children have experienced the taste of mango directly from the tree, It is a country no far different from Costa Rica, but with a disadvantage, we are not using properly our natural sources, we are tearing apart our forests just to get some extra cash, we are not developing a real awareness about the damage we are causing. The whole planet earth suffer for the devastation is taking place with our tropics, That is why I am choosing Costa Rica, because there is so much to learn from them, and I want to comprehend how such a small country has managed
When I was living Guatemala I was living a alone with my son Franklyn Alexis Santiago Tercero-Jacinto. His father did not want to have anything to do with us and left us about four years ago. I was living alone and I did fear that something could happen for the reason that is very unsafe and crime is well known to happen. On June 26,2016 was a date that marked my life I was rapped by a man named Miguel Angel Lopez. He was a man that would go to the restaurant where I worked to eat.
