    Traveling Nightmare

    This is more of a traveling nightmare than a vacation nightmare, but basically, it has to do with traveling with my parents. Anytime I travel alone or with my friends or with Paulo, I never seem to run into these little problems that make everyone nervous or angry. But every...

    Red Eyes

    I was complaining for the past days that I want to have some vacation, just to have some good sleep for days. It was not a fun vacation. I spent several days at home, having sore eyes. I don't want to go to office, 'cause I might spread the virus. My professors and classmates...

    My Worst Vacation Nightmare

    When I was six I went to Martha's Vineyard for what was to be a weeklong vacation in the sun. The first day I got there was amazing. I was already giddy because I'd never been on a ferry before, and seeing the ocean was astonishing. I remember watching the sunset on my first day...

    Florida Beach

    I was probably about 12 years old.  The company that my father worked for had their annual conference in Jacksonville Florida.  It was in the winter and my parents made arrangements and pulled me out of school for the trip.  I was SO excited.  We were booked...

    Vacation Nightmare

    Last night, I dreamt my usual “travelling dream,” which always starts on a wooden pier, in a round wooden shop full of tourist gifts. The shop has four exit points and four wooden pathways, and it belongs to every country, and could be anywhere. But when I look out...
