Personal Narrative: My Trip To America

Decent Essays
I woke up frightened for my life that I missed my flight already, I immediately got up ran, grabbed my bag, threw clothes on, and went downstairs to see nobody. I remember thinking that they left without me just like the movie Home Alone. I went back upstairs checked my phone and it read 3:30am, my alarm was set for 4:15am. I laid back down in my bed and tried to go to sleep but I couldn’t. I stayed up until my alarm went off 45 minutes later. I couldn’t wait for my first trip outside of the United States. I traveled all around America because of soccer and my family. At the age of 12 I had already visited 23 of the 50 states. I took many plane rides but never a plane ride as long as this one was going to be. My parents liked to travel a lot, …show more content…
It was a cold, wintery morning, and there was snow resting on the motionless tress. The roads had an inch of very thin snow on them and driving conditions weren’t terrible. The airport from our house is around a five-minute drive, so we got there presumably quick. Once we arrived at the airport I hugged my grandparents and cousins and checked in. There was no lines for anything because it was so early in the morning and we went through security in less than 5 minutes, now all we had to do was wait for our plane to take off. We sat at our gate for what felt like hours, as we watched many people come to the gate with huge smiles on their faces. I was a little nervous for the flight, but my excitement to land in Aruba was much stronger and overtook my nervousness. We finally boarded and I took my window seat as I usually did. My mom took the aisle seat and my sister sat next to me. My cousins sat behind us and my grandparents in front of us. The 5 hours felt like a lifetime, I couldn’t wait to get off of the plane and into my bathing suit. My mom woke me up with 15 minutes left in the flight to say we were almost there, I looked out the window and all I saw was the wonderful, bright blue color of the Caribbean Sea. The water was so clear I could see fish swimming and the bottom of the sea. I saw many boats fishing and just going for a cruise in the perfect day in paradise. Then I looked …show more content…
There is a refrigerator, stove, microwave, and everything else you need. If you went past the kitchen there would be a room with a queen size bed, flat screen TV, a porch for viewing, and a bathroom. If you went to the right, there would be a dinner table and a couch with another TV. There was also another porch and two other rooms with the same things. I put my bags to the right and immediately claimed my room I was so excited. I changed into my bathing suit then when to the pool with my sister. The temperature was 89 degrees and a little cool breeze. The pool was the perfect temperature to cool us off whenever we got too hot. Another thing I would always do when I was too hot, was go to to the bar and get a strawberry daiquiri. My sister was a fan of the piña colada, but I didn’t like them because of the pineapple. I loved the pool, but I thought the beach was much better. You had more room to run around and play sports and do fun activities. My family would always start the day off in the pool then later go to the beach and hangout there until the sun went down. The sunsets were amazing scenes to watch, the colors were sights I had never seen before. Then after watching the sunset we would go out to dinner, and eat the delicious food. After we would go back and go to bed. The time flew and pretty soon it was the last day before we had

Before I could get to any of this, however, I had to get through the eight hour ride in the car with Livi, who was little more to me than a classmate at the time, her mother, and her grandmother. “They’ve never let me take a friend on our trips before.” It was difficult to hide my surprise. Although Livi is practically family now, we had never spent time together alone outside of school before I was invited on this vacation with her family. Her…

    Our plan was simple, we would drive the 7 hours from my home in Illinois to the boat docked at Hancock, Michigan. The boat was then to take us to the mystical Isle Royal.

I started freaking out telling my dad our trip was ruined, but my dad just smiled and told me to look around. I looked around, but only saw a tiny seaplane docked in the water.…
