Is it Really Over?

By Katrina Bennett '16 on June 22, 2013

Since receiving my acceptance letter to Colgate, and finding out I was chosen as a Benton Scholar during my senior year of high school, I had been so excited for my Benton trip to Argentina! Now, after being back in the US for a couple of weeks, I still can not believe that this much anticipated trip is over! However, it far exceeded any of the expectations I had, and I am so thankful to Colgate for giving me the opportunity!

I found in amazing that during my almost three week stay in Argentina I was able to experience a huge metropolitan city, visit one of the seven wonders of the world in an almost rainforest- like region, and stay in a tiny but beautiful little mountain village, all while staying in the same country. I saw and did so many things in Argentina that I never expected to do, such as riding horses into the sunset on a ranch, seeing a wild crocodile, and so much more. Doing things like this in a country I never expected to visit has empowered me to want to travel to more places around the globe that may not exactly be the top tourist locations. After my experiences in Argentina, I truly believe that wherever I go I can find something different and amazing that I will can learn from and will remember for a while to come!
