Mid-State Students Headed to School at Sea

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (NELSON)  --  Two Mid-State university students are planning a study-abroad trip with a twist. 

Belmont University students, Riley Hutchins and Dan Franquemont are currently raising funds to study abroad at sea.

While on the journey, the two plan to visit seven different countries and film every moment of the journey. They hope to create a 16-week series called, “2 Guys, 1 Boat, and An Adventure of a Lifetime.”

Student Riley Hutchins, is more than a little excited about the trip.

“I can’t wait. It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity. We’re going to places I’ve never been before like Spain and Greece, Turkey, Morrocco… going with my best friend also makes it really neat.”

Hutchins and Franquemont are raising support for their trip using the online crowd-source fundraising tool kickstarter.com
