Where do you like to go on vacation?

Sharon (Editor-in-Chief): I love travelling to exotic parts of the world, especially little known pockets of beauty. There’s a certain sort of mysticism that I get when I’m apart from human civilization, and when I’m alone, I can feel the natural world sing around me. That’s my favorite type of vacation – relaxation, exploration, and meditation.

Kasey Dallman (AKOM Editor): I love traveling to Europe. From the people to the architecture to the culture and food, it definitely is a life changing experience. My last trip to Europe I primarily went to Hungary and the Czech Republic. Now I can’t wait to explore other countries!

Tanmaya Murthy (Poetry Editor): When it comes to summer vacations, hills are the best region for relaxing your mind, body and soul from the scorching heat. The subtle and serene environment makes every moment of our vacation worth it!

Remmi Smith (Cook Nook Columnist): I love to vacation where there are beaches. I have a big family so we always end up driving to our vacation destination. It takes us about 20 hours to drive to a beach……but once we get there the beach makes all of the difference. It makes me feel good! <3Remmi!

Cathy Yan (Amazing Kids! Adventures and Global Village Editor): I don’t have a specific place, since I make it a rule to never visit anywhere twice. However, I did enjoy a two week tour through Europe during spring break. In the future, I hope to visit the northeastern part of the United States (I’m particularly excited about seeing New York) and go on a volunteer vacation, where I will be building schools in third world countries. My goal is to travel to all of the continents except for Antarctica.

Haofei Liu (Spotlight Interviews): I like to go to the beach during vacations. I live close to a few beaches, so it’s really convenient and fast to get there; no long car rides with annoying siblings… Yay! I usually like to practice my photography skills at the beach and of course I love doing the classic beach activities such as jumping into waves and making sandcastles; they honestly never get old!

Monica Gu (PR Correspondent): It really depends. Sometimes I just feel like driving somewhere with my friends–the beach, a state that isn’t home, an amusement park. Other times I like to get as far away from home as possible, counting the stamps and visas in my passport, walking around towns and listening to languages I don’t understand a word of. Sometimes I vacation for the people, sometimes for the place.

Megan Weaver (Contributing Writer): My family often goes to Monterey for a week each summer. We stay in a beach house and wake up each morning with dolphins and seals outside of our windows. It’s beautiful and so much fun to be able to relax with my family on the beach!

Brandon Kuske (Contributing Writer): I like to go to Florida for my vacations. I enjoy the warm weather and going to Disney World!

Sarina Patel (Contributing Writer): I like to go on vacation to London. Not only are my grandparents there, but I love riding the Tube (the sleek modern-day train  underground) from place to place. From the drama to the rich chocolate; from the whooshing rattle of the train to the salty fish’n’chips- English life is sumptuously vivid. Even their terminology sounds brilliant: words like “aubergine” “loo” and “bangers and mash” mean “blackish-purple eggplant” “bathroom” and “sausages and mashed potatoes”. The steering wheel of the English cars are on the right side, they drive on narrow roads, and they drive on the left side of the road when they’re going somewhere. British people have a different way of living life; but I have to say- it’s a good way.
