Most memorable views during your travels.
My most memorable view would be hiking through a Eucalyptus Forest in Ethiopia, the trees had a beautiful fragrant smell and were so tall they looked like they touched the sky.
What makes you happy?
Hiking, camping, and skiing make me happy. I love being in touch with nature.
What gets me out of bed in the morning?
Drinking a chai latte, it's my favorite drink and always gets my day started on the right foot.
Best advice to a future study abroad student:
Take in every little experience, the more you immerse yourself the more you'll get out of your trip.
The next thing on your bucket list?
Visiting The Ring of Kerry in Ireland!
