Wanderlust: 15 Life Lessons (and pictures) from Puerto Rico

O N E  D R O P

On a whim, I decided to join a group of classmates going to Puerto Rico on vacation. As I mentioned, this would be my first legit Spring Break vacation. This post will be a teaser of some of my photos from the trip. Between my friends and I, there should be over 1000 pictures! We were only there for 5 glorious days but we made some great memories. This was, hands down, my favorite Spring Break holiday.

As I’m reflecting from my trip, I thought I’d share some lessons I learned while I was away:

#1. Be open to new experiences.

This vacation showed me how much I’ve been missing out by not traveling. I shudder to think that I almost didn’t go on the trip, but decided to jump in last minute. It was worth every penny! I have been bitten by the proverbial travel bug and I can’t wait for my next trip (where/whenever it will be).
