Scenic Route Travels


Iceland had been #1 on my mental bucket list for some time when things fell into place for me to go this summer. I had just declared Environmental Science as my major, and with an empty 4-month summer looming ahead of me, this trip appeared on the horizon like a confirmation of every choice I had ever made.

So I recently found out some really exciting news. Northeastern does mini month-long study abroad programs called Dialogue of Civilizations, and I’ve been accepted to one in Iceland this July! That means I have the incredible luck of spending part of my summer camping around Iceland and studying environmental science. I’ve been a little obsessed it Iceland for the last year, admittedly, because it it just such an stunningly beautiful country! Iceland is also… Read More
