My expectation for the schedule we have is to finish

My expectation for the schedule we have is to finish all of the listed activities, but going up Haleakala would be on the top of my things to do list. While engaging in the various activities that are scheduled for our group we will be transported from place to place. I am the type of person to express and talk about what is going on around me so I would have to say one of my expectations for the transportation on the island is that it’s not always a silent car ride, because I want to be able to have conversation about the natural beauty I see while driving. I don’t really know how or what traffic is like in Maui but I do expect that my instructor has a plan for and around traffic so we don’t have to spend hours sitting in the van, because I would much rather leave earlier than sit in traffic. Weather is always unpredictable that’s why my hopes for the weather to be nice and sunny the whole time I’m there is different than my expectations. My expectations is that we will probably get rain at least one to two days we are there, I just hope that those days are days where we are just hiking and not doing any other activity like snorkeling or when we go to the Luau. Speaking of snorkeling my expectations for me when we do go snorkeling is that I will see a lot of different kinds of fish. I have never been snorkeling before so it does kind of scare me to use one because when I was little we had

cheap plastic snorkel for our pool at home and the one time I used it, I didn’t use it correctly and chocked on water, I have yet to use one sense. Although I do expect it to be a little easier in Maui because I will have better equipment and someone there to teach me how to use it. Like I previously stated I hope the weather is nice the whole time we are there but if it does rain I hope it is when we are just strictly hiking. My expectation for hiking is that I learn the most about how tourism effects the environment in Maui. The reason I expect to learn the most about how our adventure travel impacts Maui’s environment is because we can physically see the damages to that environment. I also desire to learn on these hikes the best way to preserve the environment while adventure traveling because I can use that knowledge for other places I travel to in the future. One of the most important things I want to do in Maui is talk to the Hawaiian people. I think the best opportunity for me to experience this is when we plan to go visit Professor Kennedy’s friend and enjoy his shaved ice. I anticipate that is one time that I do listen and learn about a Hawaiian’s culture, customs and history. I also think that sense it is the first day out on the island with the group I will be very excited to learn as much as a can about their society and way of life. From watching movies and television shows Hawaii’s culture also involves a lot of surfing. My expectation for me when we do go surfing is to fall a lot. I have been surfing before but I do expect it to be a little easier in Maui than it is in

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
