I returned home feeling inspired to make more environmentally friendly changes in my daily life because I had just experienced first-hand a part of the world that is greatly impacted by the changes we make here at home. I also fell in love with Ecuador and plan to spend the next few years of my life studying spanish so that I can return. I will never forget my experiences in Ecuador. It makes me sad to write this right now because I know it means this whole experience is coming to a close. Everything about the trip exceeded my expectations. All I can really say is thank you.
