I am excited to experience the Galapagos Islands for myself; I deeply enjoy seeing the uniqueness of the world’s exotic and completely different locations compared to the city life of Milwaukee. The rare occurrence of how these islands formed in the first place is one of the many reasons why I’m wanting to learn more about this place's history. Seeing the different wildlife and culture exhibited in the Galapagos is also something that I can’t wait to witness firsthand. Being with friends is also a pleasure with any experience, and I hope to strengthen and grow friendships that already exist while trying to make new ones. Having gone on trips to South Dakota, Washington D.C, St. Louis, Missouri, Boston, and Florida, I’m excited to put my first international trip on the list.
