BFF's in Baja!

By Lizzy S. (Racine, WI)
Do you ever wonder what it would be like going on a dream vacation with your best friend? Le me tell you from experience, it is amazing! When I first planned on coming to Baja with my school, I was ecstatic. A trip centered around marine biology and preserving the oceans was right up my alley. I knew I would have the time of my life! However, when I found out my best friend Mary, who is like a sister to me, was going, I was speechless. The list of things I knew we were going to experience together was endless and I knew that the amount of fun we were going to have would be incomprehensible. I was definitely right! Going into the trip I had never snorkeled, swam with sea lions, or even been in the ocean! Being able to experience these new wonders with someone as great as Mary was outstanding! We had so many laughs together. Whether it be the amount of times we accidentally breathed water into our snorkeles or us both falling down on the side of a mountain, laughs and smiles were always shared. This trip was amazing. Not only did I get to experience and learn new things that I am extremely interested in, but I also got to spend it with someone who is basically my twin and someone I could never live without, my best friend.
