Hello everyone! My name is Annabelle and I am from Boulder Colorado. Like most of you I just graduated High School and I am taking a gap year before attending either CU Denver or CU Boulder I haven’t decided yet. I am taking a gap year because I am not a huge school person and I wanted a chance to explore a little and try to decide what I want to do next year. I am super excited to go to Nepal and learn more about Buddhism and learning a new language. I am also very excited about the trekking part of the trip.

Because I live in Boulder I go backpacking and hiking quite a bit as well as trail running. After the Nepal semester I’m planning on going to live with my mom in Thailand and teach English at an international school. Overall I’m super excited to meet everyone and to explore Nepal 🙂
