Unforgettable experience in the BVI's

I honestly cannot say enough good things about this trip. The two weeks I spent in the British Virgin Islands was an absolutely incredible experience with so much hands on work. I was constantly learning something, whether it was about sailing, diving, or marine life, yet it was also exciting and fun. Getting the opportunity to actually do underwater research was so thrilling, and also gave me insight into what research entails. Through this, I also learned a lot about the coral reefs and other marine life in the Caribbean. Living on a sailboat was also a once in a lifetime experience in which I learned a tremendous amount about sailing in one of the best places to sail in the world. The BVI's were incredibly idyllic, and what I learned every day was incredibly fascinating and will definitely stick with me for years to come.
