    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Waalaa says she is a teacher, so if she budgets her trips right, she can take vacations. Here's how she describes a favorite childhood trip: 'With six kids and my parents, running out of gas and breaking down in various states across the U.S and Canada. 'Character builder' my dad would say. 'I planned it to teach you what to do' was another favorite.'
