When I first moved to Mexico I was 15 years old; I had everything in D.R, friends, family, and sport, a life I really enjoyed and was really happy with it. I had always thought I was going to spend the rest of my life in my home country, since I was born there, but I guess I was wrong. I didn’t make it a big deal because I knew I was still going to be with my family, and family is everything. It was my first time going to Mexico and have a completely different lifestyle so I was pretty nervous. As soon as I arrived Mexico, I was completely shocked; All I saw were buildings everywhere; I was used to seeing land everywhere and animals right in front of my house.
We had been on a flight for about three hours, and I was very scared, because that was my first time on a plane. We were sightseeing in Arizona for a day or two, taking pictures and shopping around the local stores, looking for cool stuff to bring home for our families. The day after, we were supposed to take a van for a 12 hour trip to Puerto Penasco, to the Penasco del Sol Hotel. That
The boat was known by Viva la Thomas. The Viva la Thomas best looking I have ever seen in my life. It looked like heaven floating on the clear ocean waters. So we were set and headed off to the middle of the ocean. My biggest enemy was this parachute I was thinking of in my head.
We hopped right into the boat and did some tubing and wake boarding. That night we all came back to the house and grilled out. Everyone was worn out just within 4 hours and we went straight to sleep. The second day was even more fun! When we woke up we were so ready to get on the boat and do it again.
This would be my fourth time visiting Mexico. Crossing the border is the most nerve racking thing that you could do and I know from experience how dangerous it can be driving to your destination. It was the December the week before finals and my parents had planned on taking a trip to
It was July 15, 2012 my heart was pounding as fast as a racing car,as I slowly walked the steps of the enormous plane,I slowly thought of how different my life was gonna be, in new place i’ve never been to. I felt exited to meet this place but at same time I felt scared……how different was Latin America gonna be? “El Salvador”,my mom softly repeated the name of the place we where traveling to. After four hours of watching the white clouds,and the peaceful sky, we had finally arrived. As we stepped out of the Airport my eyes where rapidly attracted to all the Cultural things around me,I could feel how my lungs breathed in and out the smell of traditional food and fresh natural air.
I experienced a very courageous vibe when I passed by the house, as if he was there on that night. The last place we went to see was the Battleship Cove, which was a giant ship displayed as the largest series of World War II naval vessels. The Battleship Cove is a nonprofit nautical museum and war memorial, and the view was absolutely outstanding. The whole eighth grade class took a “Boston Trip” photo in front of the massive ship, and definitely created another memorable, fun time together. At last, we went back on the buses for another dreadful long ride back home, though the drive to dinner was very encouraging.
The Grand Mayan Vidanta is located in Cancún near Playa del Carmen the flight takes six hours if you are leaving from the Los Angeles airport. It was my first airplane ride and my first trip outside of the United States. At first it felt quite terrifying watching everything become smaller and seeing the sea look bigger. Once we arrived we had to take golf carts in order to get to other locations at our hotel. They make every person where a specific colored bracelet that they must keep on during their stay.
I then started imagining myself in an airplane obviously me and my sister were gonna be traveling in an airplane. Two days before the day to leave my sister and me started packing everything we were gonna take and we took 2 suitcases and we each had a backpack to take with us on the airplane. The day before me and my sister were talking about how different would it be there from here. It was 5 am and it was time to get up and start getting all of our things and head out to the airport it took 2 hours to get to the Atlanta international airport, when we go there my parents helped get out our bags and we went in to get our suitcases checked. Once we got all that done we headed off to our gate until it was time to get on the airplane and leave.
’’Splash’’ went the water when we all jumped in. The water was nice and fresh,but for my little cousins in was ice cold. With the warm weather the water was a little bit warmer but it was kind of windy. So we decided to get out of the pool. Since it was already sunset we got our stuff and went to our hotel rooms to go to sleep and get ready for the next day.
The line up to the counter was fairly short but since we were so excited it felt like an I’m-going-to-die-before-I-get-up-there kind of line. We finally got up to the counter, she was so nice asking where we were from and the most asked question of all if we were sisters. We got settled in with our room and getting our wristbands so we could swim. When we got up to our room on the second floor we were starving. For dinner that night we decided we would have the hotel’s buffet.
Despite the drastic price increase. So, about 5 months later, I was headed to Boston. June 25th, I was dressed for success and ready to get on my first ever plane ride alone. After, an hour or so of lines and security, I was waiting and ready to board the plane.
We did several different activities from sunrise to sunset that included swimming,volleyball on the beach, fishing and zip lining. I realized that the sun takes a lot of energy out of you so at night you would sleep like a baby. Other activities that we did away from the resort was the “Glass Bottom Boat”.
In spring of 2013, I went to Hawaii on the band spring trip and I loved it! We spent a week there and I cried when we had to board the plane back home. People see pictures of how beautiful it is over there, but they just do not do the Aloha state any justice. Like Hawaii the Florida Keys has beautiful waters, and wildlife. I have always dreamt of living on an island and if I had to choose a place it would be one of these two.
From the 1st through the 15th of August of 2015 my family and I took a much needed vacation to the Hawaiian Islands. We went to both Oahu and Hawaii (which is often referred to as “The Big Island”). I remember I was really excited to go, who wouldn’t be? However, I was not excited to fly the better half of a day to make it to my awaiting tropical oasis.
