Shea Zion – blog 3

I’ve taken a lot of vacations and I’ve definitely learned different things on each of them. The alternative spring break trip to New Orleans is, by far, the vacation I’ve learned the most on. I learned more than what they taught us on the tours or the tricks we learned during our volunteer hours. I learned the importance of giving back what’s been given to me. I never realized how lucky I was to be blessed with the life I have. Helping the less unfortunate in New Orleans made me so grateful for everything I’ve been given in life. The best parts of this trip were seeing people’s faces when we came to help. We’d tell them that we were simply volunteering during our week of spring break and they couldn’t quit thanking us for willingly choosing to come and spend our free time helping them. Those were some of the moments that made this trip mean the most to me.
