Alzar School | 07.07.09

I am super bummed that this trip is over because I’ve had so much fun! Overall, this trip has been totally different then the Alzar trip in Mexico. I think I’ve improved a whole lot and I’m not nervous being underwater or trying new stuff. What I really liked about this trip was that not only do the instructors teach you how to do things, the students teach too. I’ve also seen myself improve off the water. My leadership skills have grown and changed since A.I.M. (Adventure in Mexico), and I could definitely see my improvement on FLOW. This trip has been so awesome I don’t think there has been a single time when I’ve been bored. I also don’t’ think there was a time where I wasn’t either smiling or laughing. Looking back on the trip, I think it has been so awesome because everyone is so goofy and the rivers have been so different but so awesome too. I’ll definitely miss FLOW and my adventures on Alzar and hope to do other Alzar trips too.

Thanks Kristin, Sean, Katie, and Claudio for making this trip happen- it’s been a BLAST!
