Hi everyone! My name is Nellie and I am from Vail, Colorado. Growing up in Colorado I have had constant access to the outdoors and have developed a love for hiking and skiing, but I also love water sports, boating and being on the river. I was originally on the Bhutan course, but I am very excited for the opportunity to be on this course. I wanted to be on this course because of the many countries we will visit and the prominence of the river. I am excited to meet different people in each country and understand their connections with the Mekong. In these final weeks I will be spending time with my family and getting ready for the trip. See you soon!
