Hi! It feels a little weird to be the first student to post, but I guess I will take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Tessa, and I’m from Carpinteria, California. I can’t wait to meet everyone! I grew up in Southern California in a small beach town, and I’m heading into my senior year here. I spend my summers in rural Wyoming in the mountains. I love backpacking, outdoor sports, and spending time outdoors. I have never traveled alone or been to Asia, but I saw the itinerary and I’m super excited.
Anyways, I had a couple questions regarding the packing list. First, I see that a sleeping bag is not on the packing list. I am not planning on bringing one, is that okay? Secondly, I was wondering how formal the formal dress should be? Lastly, I have no problem wearing board shorts for swimming, is that what I should bring or should I bring a regular bathing suit.
Can’t wait to meet everybody and see you soon.
