I am a firm believer that travel is the greatest classroom. The education you experience when stepping foot in a different country, on a different continent, far exceeds any knowledge a textbook can contain. Most people call it a 'bucket list,' but I call it my life. I wouldn't be living if I didn't see this big, beautiful world that God created. And to deprive myself of this opportunity in an effort to adhere to social norms would be the cruelest form of deprivation. I've left my heart in so many places.
