During our first week of independent travel, we went snorkeling and kayaking off the coast of Costa Brava, Spain. Even though it was a really cloudy day, we could still see how clear the water was. Schools of fish swam under us and we got to hold sea urchins and find star fish. One student with us, Rachel Geiser, was so independent and unafraid of the open waters—she was always the first one out of our kayak to get in the water. We all had a blast!
