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
On Saturday morning, I woke up at 7 am, excited about seeing Kevin. I got into my BMW roadster, joyfully driving for about 2 hours before reaching the city at half past nine. I felt amazed at the sight of lush greenery, which made regret not visiting the city before. With the help of my GPS, I made my way to the restaurant Kevin said we
The talented musician Eddie Money once said “I’ve got two tickets in my pocket, now baby, we’re going to disappear.” What if we all had that? Two tickets to wherever you wanted to go. No one to stop you just you and someone special to you disappearing. If I had the choice to go anywhere in this world, it would be to have one more night with my dad in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Baton Rouge is my birthplace and me and my dad shared a bond with that city.
I full of excitement (Absolute), got to packing as soon as I found out. We got there by driving I believe my parents realized their mistake at about hour two because of hearing "are we almost there" every couple of minutes. We left at night so that we could sleep most of the ride, but I couldn’t, I was so excited. When we finally got there, it was amazing and all I had seen was the hotel room. We stayed in the resort so that things were more continent.
Word began spreading around town about the group named the Flying Tigers. That name would stay in the mouths of the Chinese people for over a century, continuing into the present day. One significant pilot, Bill Reed, served several tours, leaving an everlasting footprint in history. This cunning young man was born in the small town of Marion, Iowa, where his talents didn’t limit themselves to just his residence but across the state. Edward Reed, the nephew of Bill Reed, wrote a biography for Reed saying, “An excellent student and outstanding athlete, Bill graduated high school in 1935 and with honors from Loras College in Dubuque, Iowa, in 1939.
Over the summer, in August, I traveled to California by myself. About a week later, my brother (Austin) came by himself and a couple days after, my cousin Joseph flew over as well. We stayed at my aunt and uncle’s penthouse in downtown Los Angeles. Then on Saturday morning we set off to San Francisco in a rental car for 5 and half hours. The ride was super long but we had some beautiful sights to watch as we drove by on the warm pleasant day.
[Transition] Lastly I want to talk about the costs that you might face if you were to travel to the Grand Canyon 1. The first item on my list was helicopter tours. Well they run about 200 dollars, and are usually only half an hour or so, grand-canyon-park.org gives a comprehensive list of helicopter tours and prices as well as

When I was 8 years old, my family and I hopped on a plane to San Francisco, California for a family field trip. It took exactly 7 hours to fly from Albany, Ga to San Francisco on the plane, but it didn’t bother me because I had food and took 2 naps during the flight. I was very excited to go to California but I wondered why we were going all the way there and not somewhere closer to Georgia. I ask my mom why we were going there, but she wouldn’t tell me; she said that it was a surprise. After the flight was over, my mom, 14 years old sister, and my 7-month-old sister, and stepfather paid a taxi driver to take us to The Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay hotel.
We need to talk about ‘Wanderlust culture’ Travelling has never been easier, this much is a certainty. I was catching up with a friend who had just returned from Italy last month when, out of curiosity, I did a 5 minute research to discover the cheapest flights available in Europe, from Portugal. Imagine my surprise to find I could easily go to Paris or Milan for outrageous prices such as 20€. That’s about as much as I pay to visit my hometown, 120kms away. My mouse’s cursor hoovered anxiously over the “Buy” button.

Him and his wife, Cynthia, suggested that they would travel the famous highway as they performed the song for Nat King Cole called “Get Your Kicks on Route 66.” became the most recorded song in history. The album cover by Bobby Troup composed in 1946 with popular rhythms and blue standards. With the rising amount of people traveling on route 66, tourist attraction has become a huge thing. Attractions like the Cadillac Ranch has become sites that you can only see on Route 66.
When people drive by Hays on the interstate, a majority of the time they look for a name they recognize. There are some fast food options, but only a few sit-down restaurants. Setting up a Buffalo Wild Wings on the interstate would be incredibly beneficial to their company. Applebee’s, located along I-70, is the only one that shows sports games. Hays’ Applebee’s is the best selling Applebee’s in the entire state of Kansas.
When we travel, it’s usually for a purpose. Our more elaborate destinations are still accessible by a five member family in a minivan, nowhere overseas, nowhere more than a 20 hour drive. Endless hours of planning, particularly by my mother and I (my mom calls me the “planner” of the family), go into each extensive trip to ensure we get as much out of our time, and money, as possible. However, on one warm Wednesday evening in Washington D.C., two days into our trip out east, things didn’t exactly go as planned.
Meeting the Automatic Millionaire: This chapter introduces the McIntryres and how they became automatic millionaires.

But not the beachy California it’s like from the movie Old West. Here’s an example,“Small wooden stores, saloons leaning woozily into dusty streets, the foreboding sense that some outlaws could come riding into town at any moment, looking for a shoot out”(McCarry, 25).In the “The Day it Rained Cats” the setting is in Sheera’s house. On page 23 it said,”I saw a cat plummet past my window, followed by two more, so I clapped my book shut and rushed outside”(Park,23).In the “The Day it Rained Cats” the setting is in Sheera’s house.
