Personal Narrative: My Road Trip To Canada

Satisfactory Essays
This Friday my family decided to go on a two week road trip to Canada with various stopovers in between, while I’m stuck at home alone because of school. At first my parents wanted me to go with them, but I had to decline because missing two weeks’ worth of school is basically saying you want to fail the semester. I am kind of bummed that I couldn’t make it to the trip but, I’m also kind of excited to be home alone for two weeks. This is by far the longest I would be left alone and having to ration my money for the two weeks. It’s good practice for college once I transfer out and head off to a dorm or rent an apartment. So far the only thing different I’ve noticed about my solitary life compared to life with my family is that I have a lot

    on a road trip to Colorado with my church group. It was supposed to be one of the best weeks of our lives, and it was. We still reminisce about Colorado and talk about going back and visiting almost every single day. The experiences we gained while working with others is one that taught me valuable lessons. Up until I went on this trip, I was a sand-in-your-hair, sand-on-your-feet, salt water type of person. I could have lived on the beach my entire life and still never feel as if I’ve had my fill…

    “What do you think?” I said to the man as he analyzed the car in my driveway. He was doing this for the past half an hour, asking every question there was to know about the car. I knew everything about the cars that I dealt with and I answered every question more confidently than the one before. This chat went on for another fifteen minutes and by this time I knew in my head, if he didn’t like the car, he would probably have already left. Finally, he said to me in an eager tone, “What’s your final…

    event that stands out is the family vacation I took to Toronto, Canada. It took place in middle of the hot month of July in 2007. It was a family trip that I went on with my church, Brown Missionary Baptist Church. I had never gone on a trip with them before but was filled with so much excitement and anticipation as well as curiosity and being very nervous as time winded down. I guess it had something to do with me really getting to know my church members. You would think that we would want to travel…

    2017. The road trip to Virginia Beach was a long drive the first and the second time going up there, but the drive back wasn't as long as the drive up there. While driving up there I thought the sights of everything I seen was beautiful because everything was so different and new to me than what I usually see in Rockford every day. My opinion on traveling for me is fun, I love going to different places I have never been before, and experiencing new things in new places. Let me tell you my experience…
