    Journey to the far reaches of the Pacific Ocean where we immerse ourselves in the island lifestyles of Sumatra, Bali and Fiji. 

    Trekking deep into the Sumatran rainforest we search for the critically endangered orangutan. Assisting in restoring age-old Bataknese Houses in a rural Sumatran village we learn about traditional ways of living. Learning to surf the waves of Bali’s Bukit Peninsula we challenge ourselves to develop new skills. We learn new skills on our program by gaining our SCUBA certifications in Bali's turquoise waters.  Settling into a Fijian bure for our homestays we are welcomed by the village chief. We gain insight into environmental sustainability and natural disaster relief by planting mangroves. Reflecting on the experiences had and the friendships forged we conclude our semester excited to share all that we’ve learned and experienced!
