 I love to just absorb everything through sight - and of course take pictures! 

Why do I go abroad? I feel like there are so many reasons! First, I think new places, adventures, and people are what attracts me to various countries.  However, what I really love about traveling is learning about the history of different places and seeing the sites! Several years ago I was fortunate enough to go on a cruise with my family to Canada and Alaska, and the sites we saw were definitely among my most memorable.  From dogsledding on top of a glacier, snorkeling in the Gulf of Alaska, and having tea in Victoria, British Colombia, they were some of my very best memories.  Similarly, on a visit to Mexico, I took a boat to the small island of Isla de Mujeres, where I got some of the best views of the Cancun beach, the Gulf of Mexico, and ancient Mayan ruins.  These are the things that truly make me feel blessed to have the ability to see!  I love to just absorb everything through sight - and of course take pictures!

In the next couple of years I hope to add to my experiences abroad and actually cross an ocean this time!  The next countries on my list are England, Guam, and the Philippines! Hopeing that I can study abroad in England!  This program looks awesome: http://www.goabroad.com/providers/cis-center-for-international-studies/programs/cisabroad-summer-in-london-106511
