What a great blog challenge. S-Trip! is asking all the delegates of the Miss Teen Canada-World 2013 pageant to write a blog about our dream vacation. This is such a great opportunity for all of us to really discover our ideal vacation. As Miss Teen Espanola World 2013, having this blog challenge has allowed me to discover and somewhat plan my dream vacation. I have always had many ideas of places I would like to go visit but I never knew what location I would enjoy seeing with my friends as a student until now. For those of you who haven’t heard about S-Trip! here is a little information.

My dream vacation with S-Trip! would have to be Costa Rica. From what I have heard and seen of Costa Rica, I believe it would be a great place to have a vacation with friends. The country itself looks gorgeous, this is what first attracted me to the location, but it also offers various activities for students to do. S-Trip! provides numerous activities in Costa Rica that I ,myself, am interested in and I believe my friends would be as well.

I chose Costa Rica as my dream vacation for many reasons. It has great weather and beautiful scenery, it is considered to be a tropical paradise. I would plan to bring a few of my closest friends to this vacation, to really create my dream vacation. Being able to spend time with friends at a tropical destination will truly create memories of a lifetime. I would hope to enjoy my time on the beach relaxing but I would also enjoy doing a few activities while we are there. I would like to take advantage of the opportunity to learn about the culture, the history, and to do activities that I wouldn’t have the chance to do in my own country, Canada. I would for most love to take a day and help the community in which I am visiting. I believe the best way to learn the culture is to talk to the people of the community and to see what type of life they live. I would hope that I could volunteer my time to help the people with anything they would need. The volunteer experience offered by S-Trip! in the vacation to Costa Rica is to visit a local school and play an organized sport with the children. This volunteer work is very well suited to me considering my platform is to promote the importance of education. Visiting a school in another country would be a great opportunity and would be eye opening; I would be able to see firsthand how different countries educate their young people. Also me and many of my friends are very active and would love a day playing sports with the children. I believe this one activity will bring the best memories for me and my friends, giving back and helping complete strangers is the most rewarding thing in life to do. One of the items on my bucket list is offered on this vacation, SURFING. It has been a lifelong dream of mine to learn how to surf. I would enjoy so much the chance to learn such an incredible activity. I believe surfing is something I would want to continue after learning and what an amazing place to learn; in Costa Rica. S-Trip! provides a day at Tamarindo Beach, one of the major surf capitals in the world. Surfing is definitely a must do for me on my dream vacation. The rest of the days, I would ask my friends what they would like to do. I would want them doing enjoy the vacation just as much as I do; which they will because the trip will be organized through S-Trip!. In all, I believe that a trip to Costa Rica with S-Trip! will, without a doubt, be my dream vacation. What can be better than going on a trip to a tropical destination with your best friends!
