I’ve known since January that I would be dedicating my life to Teach for America and earning a Masters Degree at the University of Pennsylvania, so when one of my good friends asked if I was interested in joining him on a trip to Sweden and Denmark. Thinking it would make a fitting last vacation, I said yes, and awesomeness ensued.
