Dear Friends and Family of BYIndia 2018/19,
Please find the below travel schedule for the group’s spring adventures! Note that student phones generally do not work in Ladakh, so be prepared for some interruption in your regular communication schedule with your favorite Bridge Year Student. If you need to contact a member of the BY cohort urgently, please reach out to the Bridge Year Office. In the meantime, we hope you continue to follow the group’s adventures here on the Yak Board!
