My Travel Story

by: Josh Hall Start Date: May 8, 2017 - End Date: Feb 7, 2018
In summer 2018, I hope to travel to Sweden with a small group from my school on a tour with Wilderness Expertise and I am very excited about this opportunity.

My travel experiences will undoubtedly change my perspectives and enhance my education as a whole. It will be a unique adventure into the wild, journeying on foot and by canoe in areas of northern Sweden little visited by tourists. I will be sharing the natural world with arctic foxes, wolverines, moose, eagles and other exciting animals and I will have the opportunity to learn orientation and survival skills from expert local guides. In addition to all of this, I am especially excited to meet the Sami, Europe’s only indigenous people who live a traditional nomadic lifestyle built around reindeer herding. Seeing life through their eyes will be a truly humbling experience.

I am working to raise funds for this tour and am aiming to pay for the tour myself. I am currently in Year 8 and raising funds of this magnitude for the tour is a challenge — which I embrace wholeheartedly but with which I could use a little assistance. I am therefore looking for donors, such as you, to help me.
