Creating Spring Break – And That’s A Wrap!
Us Buffaloes seem to be creative in establishing a spring break plan; or lack thereof. It seems that many of us have moved away from the pre-determined vacations, and instead, built our own maps. The exciting thing about building a “map”, is that plans can be limitless. You can begin in Boulder and head to Lake Tahoe, California, but on the way, stop in Moab to climb the Arch…and maybe in Vegas on the drive home. Why would we need all-inclusive when we have our own imaginations? These Buffs have ventured outside of the so-called “typical” spring break locations and followed their own maps:
This week I visited the city of angels, California. I’ve always heard people say that Boulder and California are similar in lifestyle and people – I don’t necessarily think this though. The varieties of everything – from food to shops to people – were incredible. L.A is colored with food carts and trucks. The food ranges from local sushi joints to hidden Mexican treasures. Everywhere you turn you are almost certain to find a gem. Looking back on the adventures that were had this spring break, it seems that a suggestions is in order: Spring break, in order to allow for the maximum adventure in combination with recollection and rejuvenation, should be longer. Of course, this is something that a college student would say. But hey, us Buffs take advantage of every opportunity that we get to explore the cultures around us by traveling and spreading the Boulder pride.
For us Buff’s, spring break brings about different adventures – different destinations, different desireand different motivations. Many Buff’s this year ventured to Havasu and Lake Tahoe to follow the party scene and to contribute to it – of course! Other Buff’s traveled to national parks and even abroad in search of a separation from the American culture and assimilation with a new one. Whichever route that we took, we all had something in common: we wanted to escape for the week with our friends and with the motivation of relaxation and disconnection from school and responsibility.
