An unexpected, magnificent trip. Ending up going to Central America with a friend…would not have chosen that on my own, what with feeling unsafe alone and not speaking Spanish. Perfect decision. A month with company, a month solo-learning how to navigate the world on my own and some Spanish. Met up with another friend in South America for a month-but with the freedom to split up here and there—once you go independent, it’s hard to agree on doing the same thing as someone else all the time.
I went somewhere that I couldn’t fathom being alone, and I came back feeling as if I can do anything. By far the best experience, yet, of my life. I am excited for what is to come-I don’t think this goal can ever be satiated.
