Hey, my name is Blaine. I live in Palo Alto, California and just graduated from Palo Alto High School. I plan on attending school at the University of Colorado in Boulder after my gap year. This past summer I spent working as a lifeguard and saying goodbye to friends going to college.  I also spent a week in Budapest, Hungary.  I ran cross country while in high school and got really interested in astrophysics.

While in Indonesia I hope to be able spend lots of time learning about the environment and ecosystem. For my ISP i’m not entirely sure yet, but I really like the sound of pencak silat.

I really look forward to meeting all of you and traveling together!
