It’s my career
Well, this is a quite interesting question. I am planning on going on this trip with two of my greatest buddies in the world. They are doing most of the logistical support, however, I still want to be involved. I think we are planning to go to:
Nepal, Scotland/Norway, Asia, Japan, Australia, Hawaii/Kawaii, Germany, Europe, etc. We are hoping that most of the travel will be land based oppose to flying to each location.
I am a senior in the undergraduate program at Prescott College…a small liberal arts private school with an emphasis on experiencial education. I figured what a better way to finish my senior year than to do independent studies around the world.
Honestly, I have no true fears other than the strange social, economic, and political situation that is going on in the world today.
They all think it is the most fantastic thing I could ever do.
Planning is for tourists
I am sure it will affect me in ways I cannot fathime.
Because, there is something unique about being in a remote unknown location (to someone). It is impossible to experience culture shock in the US…I guess is what I mean.
You tell me.
It enlightens my mind, body, and spirit…what did I just say. I am not a hippie you know.
I need advice from you, however, I am just not sure what yet.
