Summer Plans

This semester has been one of the most difficult so far at Cal and I am really looking forward to a crazy, but fun summer. Once finals are over, I’m going to have about two and a half weeks to relax, do some research on grad schools, work on my senior thesis, and prepare for the rest of summer.

Once this long overdue break from school is up, I will be heading to Costa Rica to start my study abroad program through the School for Field Studies. This is an environmental study abroad program that focuses on field work and community involvement. To the best of my knowledge, this summer I will be working with other students from around the United States to develop an eco-tourism program for one of Costa Rica’s national parks. Because this is such an intense program, with at best one day off to explore on my own, I’m going to take about 10 days after the program is over to travel around with a friend and see the country a little.

When I get back, I will shortly be flying out again to visit my boyfriend. He will be working at a camp in New Mexico for the summer and I am already looking forward to visiting him and meeting all of his friends out there. While our plans are pretty tentative right now, I think we’ll spend the week hiking, camping, and seeing some of the sights in Colorado and New Mexico.

After he goes back to work, I will be heading off to the Caribbean with my parents for the last three weeks of summer. We plan to rent a sail boat and scuba dive on some of the prettiest reefs in the world. I think it will be quite a change to travel with my parents after a summer of traveling by myself, but I am really glad that I will be able to spend some time with my family.

This sounds like quite a crazy summer, right? Well, I couldn’t agree more! I suppose all of my college travels will be happening in one summer, because the last few summers sure haven’t been exciting.
Well, I have enjoyed writing this blog throughout the semester and I wish you the best of luck on your finals! Have a great summer and I’ll see you next year!
