COSTA RICA – March 2007
I traveled alone for 2 weeks in Costa Rica. I spent a week in Puerto Viejo a small beach town on the Caribbean Coast near Panama. I worked on a volunteer project with children at Hone Creek Elementary School, participated in a beach cleaning project, and assisted in art projects with children at the Roots of Love Foundation. I visited the Arenal Volcano, Monte Verde Cloud Forest Reserve, Joco Beach, and the capital city San Jose. While in Puerto Viejo I kayaked, surfed, biked, and relaxed on the beach. I took a zip-line tour in Arenal, hiked to the volcano, and overcame my fear of horses while riding one to La Fortuna Waterfall. In Monte Verde I hiked through the Cloud Forest Reserve.

FRANCE, SPAIN – January 2003

I spontaneously decided to fly to France in January 2003 right before I moved cross-country to San Francisco. My good friend Jackie was working as a nanny for a family in the town of Perpignan in South France. I met Jackie in Paris and we did your typical site seeing for a few days: Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, D’Orsay Museum, and Notre Dame Cathedral. We took a train South to Perpignan and I stayed with Jackie and the family that she worked for. We took several day trips to nearby towns including the Medieval city of Ville Franche, and the beach town of Collioure. I spent the last few days of my trip in Barcelona, Spain.

ENGLAND, SCOTLAND, WALES, IRELAND – May 2000

I took my first backpacking trip abroad after graduating from Clemson. I traveled with my college roommate and good friends Robyn & John, and my boyfriend at the time, Greg. We backpacked through England, Wales, Ireland, and Scotland. Our trip was relatively short for the amount of sites we saw. While in England we visited the main sites of London and also toured Bath, Liverpool, Canterbury, Kent, and Brighton Beach. In Wales we hiked to a horse stable that ended up only having ponies and were stranded on the side of the road for hours. I found the Welsh extremely nice! In Ireland we did find horses and toured the countryside as well as the main spots in Dublin. Scotland was unanimously voted as our favorite country on the trip. We took the “Haggis Tour Bus” with a big group. We visited Lake Loch Ness, Edinburgh, and drove and hiked through the beautiful countryside.
