Spending time traveling fills me with joy and having fun as a traveler is just my favorite thing. Although I will miss all my friends and family back home, I think it will be an exhlarating and funfillled trip. I’ve been snowboarding a lot recently and have heard that snowboarding and skiing in Sweden is the best in Europe. The main reason for coming is the people and the system. I researched Sweden and found that they are the some of happiest people in the world with minimal required schooling compared to the U.S. I am intrigued to see this firsthand and learn about the cultural differences"
