Post Expedition

Well, it’s been one full day since we’ve been back in the great white north. I got in my car to drive to work today, and needed to remind myself that we drive on the right side of the road, not the left. Not to mention I took a three hour nap today. You would think after a vacation, you would be well rested, but due to our early mornings, and busy days I was exhausted. 

I have spent most of my day today looking at all my pictures from the past week and reminiscing about all the amazing adventures we experienced. These included climbing up water falls at Dunn’s River Falls, to jumping off cliffs at Blue Hole, bringing the school supplies to the children at Breadnut Hill Elementary School, or when all 13 of us climbed the mountain at Fern Forest Eco- Village. Just thinking and writing about these experiences puts a smile on my face. Although all these experiences were incredible, it was my 10 other classmates, along with Linda Piper and Natalya Brown that truly made this trip so memorable. I have made many friendships that will last far beyond the ending of this course.
