Upon graduating from UST I will be embarking on a month long trip to spain. It will be the longest trip I have taken alone. I will be staying in hostels and be backpacking around the country to multiple cities. I really look forward to immersing myself inside the spanish culture to get a better understanding of how they live.

This type of trip is one that I want to try and dew every or every other year. I firmly beleive more time in one location is better than less time in multiple destinations.

Departure 6/1/17

The next month long trip I hope to take will be next year to Thailand. I have heard many great things about Thailand as well as have seen many breathtaking pictures. Once again I hope to be able to spend a whole month there simply walking and living as immersed in the culture as I can.

One thing I really hope to do while in Thailand is visit Maya Bay. This bay is one of the most well known bays in the world. As you can see from the picture below it is pretty clear why.
