Trimester 1 is winding down but our students' adventures are still in full swing!

Can you believe Trimester 1 of our 2017-2018 Gap Year is almost over? Our students are finishing up this portion of their program in Monteverde, Costa Rica. Here they have been enjoy the local vibes while also working on their independent studies (More about that to come later!) When it comes to Trimester 1, we think our student Anna puts it best,

“I am leaving for home in 2 weeks and I’m not ready to say goodbye to my Winterline family! It’s been a fantastic adventure so far that I am very grateful for.” -Anna Nickerson

Check out the photos below to better understand why our students don’t want this portion of their adventure to end! Don’t forget that every Friday we will be putting together our favorite photos and travel highlights from the past week. Be sure to check out last week’s photos, if you missed them. We will be back again with more photos from the field next Friday!
