Tucson has a new non-stop flight to New York’s JFK airport.

A non-stop flight is better than a flight with a connection because you don’t get stuck in a place that’s not your destination. The inaugural flight was on Oct. 7, 2016, and I was on that flight. Before I got on the plane, I got free giveaways like a water bottle, a bag, a statute of liberty crown, and a bagel for breakfast.

There was a singer that sang songs from the 1970s about New York. He is a football player for UofA and a singer.     

More than 11,000 years ago, the first humans arrived in Bandelier hunting enormous bison and mammoths. Bandelier is a beautiful place with an amazing history.

This National Monument, located in Los Alamos, NM, has many cave dwellings and petroglyphs from the ancient people who used to live there. Visitors can climb into some of the caves using ladders. Exploring these dwellings gives visitors an idea of what it was like to live in that area thousands of years ago.

On a recent trip to Southern California, I was lucky enough to visit Universal Studios and the newly opened Wizarding World of Harry Potter. The Harry Potter themed attraction opened in 2010 in Orlando, Florida, and in April of 2016 in Universal Studios Hollywood. The rides consist of Hogwarts Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey and Flight of the Hippogriff.

My family and I, who have been living in Tucson for the past four years, went on a European vacation this summer to visit friends and family. We visited two countries – Germany and Switzerland. We visited cities like Frankfurt and Heidelberg in Germany, and Zurich and Lausanne in Switzerland. My favorite part of the trip was paragliding with my parents in Murren, Switzerland. Located a few miles south of Interlaken, Murren is a village that is only accessible by cable car and located above the town of Stechelberg in the Lauterbrunnen Valley.

The sight was majestic. It almost didn’t look real! It is the Grand Canyon!

Starting off its life as a flat-layered rock, the impact the Colorado River had on our great landmark is remarkable and unexplainable. The Colorado River cut 277 miles of beautiful canyon! It started its process millions of years ago, and it’s still going on today.
