While I’ve been on my semester in Spain, I keep running into Adirondackees! Beth Shurtleff (Staff 2010 & 2011) and I have been hanging out in Granada a lot—hiking mostly, but also going out at night for tapas and dancing. I’m so glad I got to know her at camp because she’s introduced me to so many people I otherwise wouldn’t have met and vice versa. We’re meeting different people while becoming even better friends.
Tash Wiseman (Staff 2011 and 2009), Chris Seedhouse (Staff 2011) and I hung out in London! It was great going around London with the natives. They took me to places I wouldn’t otherwise have found and Chris and I spent the next day exploring and watching rugby games—very British.
Having ADK friends when you’re traveling is amazing. They’re always so welcoming and willing to take you in. It’s also great to reminisce; there aren’t many people who are willing to listen to us ramble about Camp, so when we got together, we all actually understood how much of an impact our summers there have had on us.
