My Travel Story

by: Lauren Roehling Start Date: Dec 8, 2015 - End Date: Apr 5, 2016
Hi guys! As you may know, I am going to Australia this summer for a little over a month with a group of college students from around the world! It has always been my dream to explore this country.  I found a summer program that allows me to engage in conservation volunteering, cultural immersion, and adventure traveling up the east coast of Australia.  We will be doing a week long conservation service-learning volunteer project in Keppel Bay National Park...and three weeks of insight, exploration and adventure canyoning in the Blue Mountains, learning to surf in coastal National Parks, hiking on beautiful Fraser Island, exploring the Whitsunday Islands by boat and snorkeling on the Great Barrier Reef.  The program is based around educational learning and hands on experience travel. This would be a meaningful experience to me and will help to expand my knowledge of other countries. 

I am paying for this trip myself, so with your help I could reach my goal faster! For the past year I have been working part time and going to school full time for this experience of a lifetime.  Any donation amount would be greatly appreciated and can help make my dream come true! Thank you for all of your help and support!
