I can’t believe I’ll be leaving San Diego tomorrow. It has been my home since I moved out here to attend San Diego State University. I’ve lived in this wonderful city for about 8 years now and have loved every moment of it. I’m not sure what is in store for me moving forward; however, I trust that it will all be for the best. I’m excited. One of my favorite quotes from Mark Twain really stuck with me:
“To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, tobe in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.” – Bill Bryson
Ever since I studied abroad in Paris, France for a month, I knew I had the travel bug. There is something so rewarding and fulfilling about going to a new place where you don’t know anyone. Through traveling, you learn about yourself. You must learn to become more patient, more courageous and more open-minded. You must learn to use what little you have. It’s amazing.
