Hi Everybody –
I’m so excited about our upcoming trip – I’ve been preparing along with the rest of you and am looking forward to our three weeks together in Nicaragua. You should know right away that in addition to my travel experience which does include time in Costa Rica and in El Salvador (more on that later), I’m a Registered Nurse, so you’ll be in good hands while we’re traveling. I also teach yoga and will be happy to have company when I practice.
So I’ve traveled with another ‘service learning’ organization to both Uganda where the emphasis was on their successful battle against AIDS and HIV, as well as El Salvador, where the focus was on how one community, Ciudad Romero, was able to re-establish itself and heal after their civil war. I found this experience to be truly inspirational.
What else…I have a husband and two cats, who I’ll be missing while we’re away. I do have an iPod that I plan to bring as well as a battery-operated camera.
What do I want to know about YOU?
- Have you traveled with a non-family group before?
- How much Spanish can you speak? (yo hablo poquito Espanol)
- What do you plan to bring with you for fun or ‘me time?’ (I plan to jump rope for exercise.)
I’m looking forward to speaking with you and hearing from you on this blog.
Onward and Upward!
