The sounds were amplified, the seals barks echoing through the crisp, morning air and the waves zealously slamming against the rocks. The great magnitude of water sweeping up, and slamming against the algae hooded earth. I felt water droplets
Once we made it back to the shore, I was still in a daze, trying to justify how Mother Nature has managed to make something so beautiful and I was able to witness it. In conclusion, it was arguably one of the best excursions I have been on and truly a once in a lifetime experience. I will always feel inspired by this place and it should be one of the natural wonders of the world. It’s definitely a place that everyone should experience and we were fortunate enough to do
This summer I went to Matagalpa, Nicaragua for 3 weeks. It was a scary experience for me at first because in all my 17 years of living I have never left my home of Oakland. Before I left to go on my trip I was nervous because I have never rode on an airplane before, and I have never been away from my grandmother for that long. In fact, she was one of the main reasons why I went. She motivated me to step out of my comfort zone and experience new and exciting things.
Then came the arrival, when I arrived it was hot but manageable, we rented a car and went to Hilton hotel. We paid extra for the ocean view. We stayed there for a week so the first day was just to enjoy ourselves. It was so amazing how right outside the hotel was the ocean, the water was so clear and not to mention it was quiet and peaceful. I remember the waves not being much but it was still just an amazing time.
My thoughts were running all over the place. I never knew such a beautiful beach existed! The sun was brighter and shiner than usual. The sun was happy to be shining on the rocks that were in the water. There was caves that looked clean and fresh.
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.
I had always heard my parents talk about the country where they were raised, Venezuela. I had wondered what it was like there since I had never been. All of my family lived there and I had never seen them. One day near Christmas break my mom asked me “David, would you like to see your family this Christmas?” As I looked up at her in excitement the thought of being able to see everybody went across my mind.
My Trip to Florida It was a cold winter night in Upstate New York. My mom and dad were enjoying a cup of coffee, my sisters were playing video games, and I was editing a few pictures on my computer. My mom brought up the idea of a vacation. She said” We haven’t been on a vacation for a long time”.
On this vacation I went to the beach, Universal Studios, and Disney world. We drove to Daytona and stayed in a little house/ village. It was my mom, my dad, Cate, Gavin, and I. I was in a car for 12 hours, not fun. We went on this vacation because we needed to get away for a while, is what my parents said anyways. We needed to have fun too.
I was in my freshman year the time that I traveled to Managua, Nicaragua. What attracted my attention was the culture and language barrier, a seemingly unbreakable facade that held incredible stories and experiences behind its imposing wall. The thought that I could hear these experiences and learn from them gave me a reason to connect with these boys and pour out my heart to them. After a week of constant twenty-four interaction, the wall crumbled and I had an experience I will never forget As my school prepared to go on this trip, I was not planning to go on the trip.
Being very fortunate to travel, my wife and I decided to traveo to Hawaii. It was our first trip to that paradisaical place. The experience was fabulous from the very beginning. We flew to the island, and before the plane could land, we were amazed at beautiful blue and clarity of the sea. As we reached towards the beach we were able to see the bottom of the ocean.
The ocean looked like an enormous pool of wonder. It was exceptionally blue that day with a slight green undertone. The surface looked as though it was covered with millions of diamonds crashing with the waves and kissing the sand. I remember the sand in between my feet, like standing on a coarse cloud that I could just seep into. The water teasing my toes and running back into hiding.
