Jessica Parnell Dr.White ENW 11 Contrast #2 Sun in St. Thomas or Powda in Utah Traveling can be exciting and adventurous, as well as hectic, no matter where in the world your travels take you. Throughout my life I have traveled to many unique places. However, two specific vacations stick out in my mind. This past summer I went on a cruise to the Virgin Islands with six of my closest friends. During February vacation of 2006, I went to Park City, Utah for a ski trip with my family as well as two other families. Before both of the trips I felt the same exact way, I was exceedingly excited and overwhelmed by the anticipation of the opportunity to get away from my regular everyday life with the people that meant the most to me.

We were greeted in the parking lot of the ship port by many men who were willing to help us with our luggage onto the ship. They took our luggage and we proceeded to wait in line for two hours to board the ship. Finally the time had come. We had already been up for about ten hours and we finally had arrived; we were greeted by a man holding a tray of frozen cocktails. We each grabbed one and dashed up to our rooms to find our luggage hadn’t arrived to our room yet. Not to worry, we were prepared as we had each packed a bathing suit into our carry-on bags.
