I am writing the beginning of my blog sitting in the mess on the 23rd around lunchtime. All around me, people are talking, laughing and watching movies. The atmosphere is relaxed and cheerful given that our midterm exams are behind us and parent port is right in front of us! It really feels like the last day before Spring Break. It is safe to say that we are all imagining our upcoming reunion with our loved ones. The past seven weeks have passed unbelievably fast and part of me still does not fully realize that it is the coast of Cuba that I am seeing through the porthole.

After a short sail from Sardinia, we arrived in Toulon. Excited and anxious to explore Toulon, we had to wait a full day at the dock. As the anticipation grew that night, we had the port presentation that was presented to us by the French class. Steve then explained to us all the wonderful port programs that we were going to do.
According to Harvard, a Gap year is a good thing.Next Virtual Information Session: May 8th 2018Our Last Parent Port in CubaDay Watch Aboard the Gulden Leeuw
