There are exactly four days left, until we are on the way to Spain.
I was born and raised an indoor person, and slowly but surely the outdoors have called my heart. I know I will complain, moan and say that I am tired as we walk those long 100 kilometers, but I know it will be worth it. I have a heart for people, and I enjoy hearing stories, just as much as I enjoy telling stories. I was unaware that the Pilgrimage to Compostella even existed until this class, but it has inspired me, to be open to strangers and also to step out of my comfort zone, to find my own calling along the Camino.
I have finished packing, and now it is simply a waiting game. I will be staying Europe after our Study Abroad adventure for 4 more weeks, so I had to pack for both trips.
What did I pack, you ask? The usual shampoo, conditioner, toiletries, make-up (yes, I brought my make-up), only 45 pieces of clothing items, sunblock & bug spray, towel my iPad, two journals, a notebook for interviews, Catch Phrases - the game, hand-sanitizer, sunglasses, a hat, and my ENO Hammock.
This is going to be an amazing trip, and we are going to come back to the states with a new perspective of the world, hopefully.
