¡Hola!

Hello!

My name is Molly and I am from Minnesota.  I can’t wait to get to South America, looking over our itinerary and packing up my stuff has made me so excited.  I can’t believe its only a few days away.

A little more about me:  I just graduated high school last spring and decided to take a gap year before starting at Colby College next fall.  I have always wanted to go to back to South America and actually live with families and learn about their culture and way of life.  Also, I love to be outside and I like hiking, so this course had everything I wanted.

I spent my summer working at a family camp in Northern Minnesota for a couple weeks and I also spent 40 days hiking in Gates of the Arctic National Park with 5 other girls. Once I got back my family went on a short trip in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area before we had to start school again.   Now that I am back home, I have started organizing stuff for the big adventure and every day I’m getting more excited!

I can’t wait to meet you all in just over a week.
