One of my favorite things to do is travel. I have been all over the United States, Europe and Israel, and I treasure my time in each city. Everywhere I go I take a ton of pictures to remember my amazing experiences.

Every summer since I was 10 years old, my family has gone on a trip somewhere in the United States. I've also had to chance to travel with friends on teen tours and high school trips. Some of my favorite cities are Chicago, San Francisco and Washington D.C.

The first time I ever traveled abroad was during Spring Break in 2005, when my family went on a vacation to France and Italy. Since it was my first time overseas and I was very nervous, but excited to see all the places I had been learning about in my AP World History class. I fell in love with Paris and Tuscany, and I hope that one day soon I'll be able to go back and visit again. This trip began my passion for travel and desire to go to every continent.

At the end of high school, students in my AP European History class were given the opportunity to travel to Europe with our teacher. Every year the trip changes, and my year we went to Venice, Salzburg, Vienna and Prague. I hadn't been to Eastern Europe before so I interested to see how it compared to Western Europe. My favorite city of the trip was Vienna, because we had learned so much about it in my class and it was beautiful.

Out of all the places I've traveled, nothing can compare to Israel. The summer before my senior year of high school I spent six weeks traveling in Israel on a student program. When I left at the end of the summer I was so upset because I didn't know when I'd get a chance to go back. This past summer I returned to Israel for four weeks on a study abroad program at Hebrew University in Jerusalem. Out of the ten weeks I've spent in Israel, I have over 2,000 pictures... it's just that breathtaking! Here are six of my favorite pictures.
