Trek View on Nepal: Himalayan Studies Gap Year Semester with Where There Be Dragons


Hey everyone! My name is Olivia and I’m from Portland Oregon.  I graduated high school this past June, and began my gap year by sailing 5,000 miles across the south pacific! I’m super excited to continue, and share part of this amazing year with you guys in Nepal.

A little bit about me:  I love outdoor adventuring of all sorts, hand-standing in high places, and  laughing with new friends.  I enjoy reading, and learning about the world around me, as well as snowboarding, and acrobatics on horseback (Equestrian Vaulting).  I decided to take a gap year because perspective is something that I believe needs to be continuously refreshed.  Travel provides the perfect opportunity to gain new perspectives, and experience life outside of your immediate comfort zone which I hope to do this year, and continue doing in my further education.  Next fall I will be attending Bard College Berlin, in Berlin Germany.

I am thrilled to share this incredible adventure with you guys, and can’t wait see you all soon!
