What’s on Your Bucket List?

BUCKET list hero 2
Do you have a list of all the things you want to see and do around the world? Maybe you want to see the Northern Lights or a show at the Globe Theatre in London. Maybe you want to volunteer in another country or learn a certain skill. Whatever it is, we’re here to show you that you can do just that while you study abroad!

This month our new blog series is going to follow a list of things students have told us they want to check off their Bucket List.

Cody Campbell recently told us that he wanted to “Surf in Australia, Gold Coast!”

Well Cody, here’s a photo from Nick Squillace doing just that!

Gold Coast, Australia USAC surfing lessons bucket list
Here’s a photo of surfing lessons in Gold Coast, Australia from Nick Squillace’s time studying abroad with USAC.

Gold Coast, Australia isn’t the only place you can learn how to surf. Our programs in Melbourne, Australia, San Sebastián, Spain, and  Puntarenas, Costa Rica also offer opportunities for surfing. In Bilbao/Getxo, SpainSan Ramón, Costa Rica  and Florianópolis, Brazil students can even take surfing classes for credits!

There are tons of options for additional activities to participate in while you study abroad. The best part is you’re not just doing something fun or learning some new skill. You’re immersing yourself in the culture of that place and becoming involved in the activities that locals do.

So even if you’re just looking to cross another item off the list, you’re going to gain so much more from it.

Whatever it is, wherever it may be, we know you can do it.

You can even tell us what’s on your Bucket List and/or share what you were able to cross off by emailing studyabroad@usac.unr.edu.


P.S. Keep an eye out for the next item we’re crossing off!

  1. Great article. Our two sons are looking to learn how to surf this summer potentially in Puntarenas in USAC. My wife and I recently got back from a 3 week tripsurfing Samoa earlier this month. We stayed in the northeast coast of Upolu. People living in the village were very hospitable and we felt safe the entire trip. We were wondering how big the waves are typically in Puntearenas this time of year?
