Thanksgiving break is something many students look forward to during the year. Some students decide to go on a special vacation during the holiday of thanks and travel many miles to have the perfect vacation.
“My family and I have been planning this trip for a while,” said senior Birke Jennings. “We’re actually going to see the biggest ball of twine ever made, in Kansas City. It has been a dream of my family for quite some time now and I am really excited to see it.”
While most would rather stay at home with family and friends, Jennings and his family have chosen a different kind of tradition.
“We usually go to different places every year for thanksgiving break,” said Jennings. “Last year we went to the Haines Shoe House in Pennsylvania which was amazing.
Although many stay with their friends and family, senior John Saunders does things a little differently.  He has started his own tradition of traveling by himself to different places of the country.
“I don’t really like to travel with people, so thanksgiving break is a perfect time for me to travel by myself,” said Saunders. “It is very liberating to go by yourself on holidays.”
Saunders has chosen many different places to travel during the holiday, but this year he has chosen something special.
“I have decided to go to Dollywood this year,” said Saunders. “It has been a lifelong dream of mine ever since I was a little boy. I can’t wait to go and see what adventures are coming my way.”
Despite this being a tradition thought somewhat odd, Saunders doesn’t let that stop him from having a good time.
“I know this is an unusual thing to do over the break,” said Saunders. “Sometimes I feel like I’m missing out on Thanksgiving with my family but at the end of the day, it’s worth it.”
