Location: West End, Tortola

Today was the first day; we arrived not knowing what to expect. I arrived three hours earlier than my shipmates, so I was anxious to meet them. After a while, they all got along a lot faster than I expected. Also, the staff members that will be living with us showed everyone how to tie our hammocks we were all so excited to be here that none of us went to sleep until about 12. When we finally went to sleep, we were awoken by a very windy thunderstorm. It was a very fun day, and I can’t wait to see what we will be doing next!
