With one final airplane ride, 11 months of exploring, learning, and adventuring in our world shifted from daily life to wonderful memories. I am a richer person because of what I experienced. My feelings of happiness, gratitude, appreciation, amazement and joy are overflowing. I have new ideas about time, values, relationships and materialism. Most important, I learned the world is full of people who are caring, kind and generous.
This blog helped me process and record my experiences as well as communicate with family, friends and strangers. I will post updates from my travels in Colombia and Cuba in the upcoming weeks. Then, like my experiences these last 11 months, this blog will transition to history.
