DABI’S STORY

Dabi and i left Dillon, MT on January 14, 2012  and did’t come home until May 1, 2012.
You see my dad got a job on a traveling college called Semester at Sea which is based out of the University of Virginia.
We lived on a ship called the MV Explorer for  3.5 months me, Dabi, my family, and some friends I made along the way  got to experience the world first hand.
We learned about the struggling communities around the world and got to help them.  We also got to learn other people’s religions and their ways of life.
I have honestly never had closer friends in my life and because of this trip I now have them all over the world.
Me and Dabi had a unique experience that I hope others may have, too..
