A little intro to me

Hi everyone! My name is Gillian Bell and I’m super excited for this trip (and at least a little nervous). I haven’t been backpacking since middle school and I’m looking forward to getting out in nature and getting away from social media and technology for a little bit). My Spanish is also quite rusty and I’m looking forward to brushing up on it!

Some fun facts about me:

-I love listening to music. My taste tends to change a lot but right now I’m downloading as much Louis the Child, Rex Orange County and Jessie Reyez onto my old iPod as I possibly can.

-My favorite shows are The Office, Scrubs and Game of Thrones. In my free time I love reading comic books (usually Marvel or DC), listening to NPR and Podcasts and taking my dog on hikes and runs.

-I love filming and photography and I’m excited to have the opportunity to capture all of the beautiful areas we will be exploring.

-My favorite foods are pasta, ice cream and kettlecorn but I’m looking forward to explore different food during the trip.


I’m looking forward to meeting all of you in Miami on the 15th!
