What intrigued me about this trip was that a high school offered this big of an opportunity to travel to the Galapagos. I would have never thought that I would travel to Ecuador and explore the culture and see many unique animals. That's what I'm most excited about, seeing all the beautiful, endangered animals. Also, just being in a different country, seeing the architecture, foods and their lifestyle. I've always wanted to travel the world and this is just one step closer. Not only will I be in another country but be able to gain knowledge from it as well.
I am excited for this trip to the Galapagos because I love the idea of traveling and exploring the world. I am also looking forward to the experiences I will have while on the trip. Another reason that this trip will be an amazing experience is that I will get to share it with some of my friends who are going, and hopefully develop new and meaningful connections with many of my classmates. Initially, I was interested in this trip simply because it was a chance to visit someplace new and see more of the world. As I attended more of the meetings and learned more about it, however, I realized how much more I would gain from it. This is not just an opportunity to explore someplace new, but also to grow as a person, a student, and a global citizen.
