This May, I chaperoned a study abroad trip to Ireland that focused on the coevolution of land and people. The focus of the trip was to link land use in Ireland to it's history, which is complicated and has changed quite a lot since joining the EU. This was my first time being overseas and it was such a pleasant experience. I really enjoyed being a trip chaperone and I learned a lot about Ireland agriculture. Also, Ireland is beautiful!!! I hope that if I become a professor I, too, can coordinate and execute a study abroad trip. The trip itinerary was especially well thought out and I appreciated getting to meet researchers and government officials in Ireland. I am still processing all of the history and research that we were exposed to.
