It still has not sunk in that I will be going to Costa Rica over break. It is really not that far from now that I will be going. I never really thought I would have time to study abroad in college. So I’m glad I have found this opportunity to go to Costa Rica.
As far as my expectations go, I have heard a lot of glowing reviews. My friends tell me it was a really fun time, and also a lot of work. Though, I look forward to this challenge. This will help me find what area I want to focus on in journalism. I plan on taking a great number of pictures. This should help me learn and prepare for a photojournalism class I have next semester.
The biggest part of the trip I look forward to is learning more about the Costa Rican culture and their passion for preserving nature. Then, I want to avoid any snake if at all possible. I hope I can learn a lot from this opportunity that doesn’t come around too often. It will be something I can use to help me in the future, and get a better perspective of cultures around the world.
