Things that I am really excited about!
– being able to go outside between classes and be in outdoor/indoor campus buildings
– living coastal, all the time!
– fresh fruit and veggies and markets (maybe I will be able to try a guanabana!)
– meeting local students, other exchange students from SFU and all across the world, international students from all the partner countries (including Cook Islands, Vanuatu, Tonga, and ~10 more!!)
– trying lots of new sports like surfing (I know I will have epic bails like the one in the picture but on piddly waves), snorkelling, and scuba diving
– white beaches (still think they are photoshopped)
– hiking (especially in the rain forest and previously volcanic areas)
