In my first post I mentioned I was working abroad in South Africa. So naturally I wanted to make sure I was sharing pictures of Cape Town with you all!
Like I mentioned in a previous post, my appreciation for the outdoors has definitely been fostered by my time at Dartmouth. (Shoutout to First Year Trips!) The first time I went abroad through Dartmouth (a language study abroad program in Brazil) I spent my spare time checking out restaurants, museums and nightlife–but this time abroad, I am all about seeing the view!
Though I can’t promise you, you’ll have an opportunity to hike the cliffs at Boulder Beach, I can promise you as a Dartmouth student you will have a wild amount of opportunities to hike the various mountains around campus including our very own Mount Moosilauke! This past summer I had a couple friends partake in the tradition called “The Fifty” which is a 54 mile hike from campus to Moosilauke Ravine Lodge which took them about 30 hours to complete with a lot of moral support along the way from their fellow students who were stationed throughout the trail. If you’re like me and thinking “I’m not about that life” then don’t worry there’s plenty of chill opportunities for Dartmouth students to hike mountains and get some nice pics for instagram while they’re at it.
