Written on the plane...

    "Do not go where the path may lead...go instead where there is no path and leave a trail."

For a while now I have been thinking of what I should write for the first post in my travel blog. I imagined writing something about how excited I am to begin to fulfil a dream I have had for so long. About the one phrase that I think about so often, that tells me I am allowed to live a life unfamiliar to hundreds and unthinkable to thousands, but the only way for me.

However, after the hard week of goodbyes I have just had, I would most like to write here how thankful and grateful I am for the wonderful people I have in my life. People have told me I am brave in doing what I am but I know I am only able to do this because of the strength I have been given by others. And the goodbyes alone have given me something I will never forget. I will always know where home is.

So why do I dream about traveling the world? After all the hard goodbyes I have had this week I have even wondered this myself. All I know is that it isn't just a want to see the beauty of a country; it is the need to do something positive for the world. How am I going to go about doing that? I'm not sure, but I think I might have to go where there is no path and leave a trail.
