Map of my Trip

Day 3 & 4 6/10/14 & 6/11/14

I’m back! Houston Airport -> DC-> Frankfurt, Germany -> Saudi Arabia->Addis Ababa -> New Home

     I have always loved to travel. As a very small child my grandparents would put me in their pop-up trailer and we would travel the coasts and swamps of Texas. My mom took us on the Amtrak train all the way up to New York and DC. My church took me to rural mountain towns and old colonial cities in Mexico. My dad would drive me to see his side of the family in the plains of Texas, and my extended family would take me to reunions in Colorado and the farmlands of Illinois.
    I have always loved to travel. As a teenager I dreamed of going to far off places like Paris, Moscow and Sydney. My first airplane flight was when I was about 15 years old, and I remember thinking of planes like magical time machines taking you quickly into the future as you chase the sun going West, or go back in time to the past as you go East.

    I love to travel, and if I could travel for the rest of my life I would be a happy woman. The last 5 days have been filled with travel and with that comes challenging myself, learning new phrases, new cultures, and learning more about myself and the world around me. To me travel is hopeful. Nothing ever goes to plan, but that is life, and you learn and grow and become a better you throughout it all. I have arrived to Addis and I couldn’t be more grateful.
