Summer in the mountains

By Nasiphi Sobahle

If you were to ask me to leave Florida and spend my summer working in the mountains in Pittsburg, Farmington – with the nearest grocery store about 45 minutes away - I would have politely declined. However, today marks a month since I left Florida and I am actually very happy in my new surroundings.

On the 13th of June, we took our very first field trip. We visited Ohio Pyle, a state park in Pennsylvania that boasts various outdoor activities such as hiking, mountain biking, white water rafting and so much more. I enjoyed appreciating the outdoors and experiencing it with friends who have become family. What a time to be alive!

The highlight of being on the Workaway International program is that I get to meet new people from all over the world. It is wonderful to think that so many people are connected through their passion for hospitality.
