Travel Locations: Indonesia, Thailand, Madagascar, Egypt

HalsteadĀ is going to Southeast Asia and Africa, including Indonesia, Thailand, Madagascar, and Egypt, to advance her SCUBA diving experience while conquering her fear of water. Along the way she will be immersing herself into the native cultures to gain an in-depth first person perspective of the people and history of the places, appreciating that the set of knowledge and experiences she comes home with are unique. Samantha is excited to experience solo travel adventure and to build her confidence and independence.
