I remember the day that I received the email about the trip. I have always told myself that I wanted to travel abroad during my college career. Well nothing like waiting until the last minute. I happily marched across that stage at the XL center on May 22nd and now I have the opportunity to tie up the end of my time spent with Eastern with a trip to Nepal. I have never really left the country other than to “vacation” in Cancun awhile back. I very excited about this trip. I am anxious and very excited about the all of the sights, smells and experiences I will be exposed to. I look forward to meeting the women at the shelter and experiencing the Nepalese culture. I’ve done some reading about the culture, in order to prepare myself but I do not think reading about it will do it justice.
This is a trip of a lifetime and I am truly blessed to be able to go. I look forward to experiencing this with all of the other students attending. This will bond us, I’m sure, for a life time. I hope everyone is just as excited as I am.
Tomorrow is the beginning of something spectacular, I’m sure.
