Traveling is a big deal to me. For the longest time, I wanted to travel with my sister and my friends. Sounds cool, right? Well, it took me a few months to realize that my friends aren’t as committed to traveling as I am. The idea sounds great, but the commitment is too much. So I’ve decided, I’m going to do it alone. Why not? I’m 20 years old, what have I got to lose? And i’m doing it all in this great program called Earthwatch. It’s a great organization where you travel around the world helping scientist study animals. I’m looking to go to Thailand possibly next year to help study Elephants.
Friends are great, but sometimes you have to do things on your own. It’s not impossible. Just got to develop that courage. :)
