It’s that time of the year. After months, and months, of school, you can finally get away. To me, this means, getting on a plane, and wandering away. Switching environments, and cultures, across the world. It’s as if all the hard work you put into the school year lead up to this. Being carefree, free, stubborn, and everything else you can’t be during the school year – or at least everything else your parents always yell at you for, when you get home. The excitement that leads up to this morning, makes your parents feel as though they fed you too much sugar, but in the end, it’s worth it.

Once on the plane, everything is surreal. It all ties in together. From your thoughts, to your emotions, it just feels good. You let your imagination wander, coming up with ways to have the best summer ever, and spending your parents money on things you’ve been dying for the whole year. Up, up, away we go. Into the white cotton candy, dripped in caramel sauce, and drizzled with orange. The sun rises, to warn you, that you are about to have the best summer you’ve had in a while.

And then, as if time was on your side the whole time, you finally landed. This is where you can whip out your phone and start officially snap-chatting, and using all the Geo tags available. As soon as you see your relatives, you run up to them and start feelings these emotions once again.  From now on, you realize that there is nothing else to do, but to claim your own bunk bed, before your siblings do, have a shower, run out all the hot water, go outside, start a fire, eat some s’mores, and not starting to count down the days until you have to go back to school, because for now, it doesn’t matter.

    That sounds like quite an adventure to have! I have traveled to nearly all of the continents of the world excluding Australia, Antarctica and South America. I completely agree with you on the emotions that are spurred when you get to see your relatives once more.

    Hey Jennifer,
    I know I’m in your school and I talk to you everyday, I thought it would be cool to leave a comment here.
    This post is very relate-able for me as I travel every year. That feeling when you take off and you know you are going to get that one thing that you really wanted is unreal.
    This was a great blog post.

    • Jennifer George

      I’m still reminiscing about summer, it’s unreal. Thank you!


  21. Jessie

    Hi Jennifer!
    I completely agree with you, a vacation seems like time is on your side. We can finally be our stubborn selves and gather up enough wanderlust to travel! You’re writing is very descriptive, especially when you were explaining the plane flight! Props to you for that. You would be able to write a book with your style of writing!
    You can come check out my blog if you’d like!

    • Jennifer George

      Hey Jessie,

      First off, I would like to thank you for this beautiful and well written comment! My teacher saw this, and was amazed as well. Vacation is just one of those things where we can do whatever we want, and not have to worry about anything… It’s just a great time. Your words are truly kind Jessie! Although I don’t think about writing books, your statement definitely motivates me to write more!

      Thank you,
      Jenn <3

    Hi Jennifer!

    Fantastic presentation, very good ideas and writing style!
    My students read your text about travelling and told me it was one of the best they have read so far!They learn English as a foreign language, so your message touched them beacuse they felt the same as you whenever they visit, relatives living abroad, for example!
    The idea of ” letting your imagination wander” is super intelligent: travelling makes you dream with what you’ve thought impossible and makes you free at the same time because you have the opportunity to meet different peolpe , cultures and traditions. And, of course, other languages!

    Thanks for sharing some good ideas!

      Hi Ms. Paiva!
      I hope you are having an amazing morning / afternoon / evening. I definitely know I am, after reading this beautiful comment! I’m so honored, that students learning a foreign language have read my blog post, and found it interesting. As a student writing a blog post about something I love, this really moves me. My big hugs to all of them!


  25. Shumaiem

    Wow your post was very interesting! The way you begin your post seemed so appealing. I totally agree with what you wrote, when you travel you experience something new, a new culture, a new environment. That feeling has always fascinated me. This was one of the best detailed blog I have ever read before. Thank you for sharing! Come and check out my blog posts I hope they interest you. It would mean a lot to me if you come and have a look

    Hi Jennifer,
    I loved your post on traveling, I could picture what you wrote in my mind. Just imagining those white, fluffy, cotton candy clouds. I have been to America, the plane trip was 14 hours! I had time to relax and no time to stress at all! Come check out my blog!:

  27. 2021sy

    Hello Jennifer! My name is Sonya. I enjoyed reading your blog on “Travelling”. What kind of places do you go to and visit over the summer? Over the summer my family and I go to the beach with our aunt, uncle, and our grandparents. We go to the beach to collect sea shells and sometimes if you go far enough out into the ocean you can find huge sea shells! Also we can go ride on my aunt and uncle’s wave runners. Sometimes (depending on the time) you can visit a sandbar, at a sandbar you can see horseshoe crabs, starfish, jellyfish, and more. Come check out my blog and don’t forget to comment too!

  28. Samantha

    Hello Jennifer! I absolutely LOVE your post! I also love to travel. We go to Florida every year for my Grandpa’s baseball team. Sadly, we couldn’t go this year because he is coaching a freshman team. Anyways, I love how you describe going into the air. I, like I said, get to experience going into the air. It is amazing!

    Hi Jennifer,

    Hi, I am Naho. I go to Hongwanji Mission School in Hawaii. I loved your post about traveling, and I completely agree with you. I went to Japan this fall, and I missed about a week of school. It was amazing to go on the trip (especially because it was cold, and in Hawaii, it’s always warm) and I got to see my relatives. Where do you go to vacation? Come check out my blog ( and comment on my posts. 🙂

    Thank you,

    • Jennifer George

      Hey Taylor,
      I hope you are having an amazing day. Thank you for your beautiful comment! Over the summer I went to Maryland, New York and Pennsylvania, to visit my relatives. Where did you go?? My grandma on my mother’s side lives in Sierra Leone, and my grandma on my Father’s side lives in New york!
      Happy Blogging,

    Hi Jennifer!
    Your post was so enjoyable to read. It is beautifully written, and I overall love your writing. The idea of letting go from the world and letting your imagination run free is magnificent. I know that during summer or any break, I love going on vacations with my family and going to fun and exotic places, but do you ever miss school. At the moment I am on Thanksgiving Break and I have a sprained ankle so I have to stay at home most of the time. I know that I do miss school, not for the teachers and lessons but I miss my friends.
    Happy Blogging,
