Sometimes when I attend events or do something, it brings back my memories of something.  When I was about 11 or 12 years old, I used to be a big nutcake fan of playing a card game, poker, with my brother, and my friends at recess.  We would use our coins as a way to play […]

Oh my goodness!  That is all I can say! GOOD TIMES!  GREAT VIBRATION! That is all I can say! The incredibly long train ride was beyond spectacular!  Anybody who dies hard to visit the area where the newest movie, Mamma Mia, was filmed, this train ride is definitely a worthwhile – BIG TIME.  Even though […]

It’s 4:30 AM in the morning and the sun is just peaking above the ocean. The wonderful cool breeze makes my hair float in the air. I feel like I am flying in a high speed. Water splashes on all over me. As the sun peaks above the ocean, the sky glistens in pink and […]

Everywhere I go, there are large crowds of people. I always felt like I squashed into a little space when I walk through the Piazza San Marco and through the narrow alleys. I hear more English than Italian. I see more Americans and other races than Italian. Just a day after I arrive in Venice, […]

When I first stepped on a small plantation, I immediately noticed a building that looked very familiar. It had ionic columns and a triangular pediment. The whole front reminded me of another famous building in United States, the White House. The White House was inspired by this building, and the White House is a neoclassical […]
