I finally did it!

Hello everyone!

Well, the title of this first post basically says it all! I’ve been meaning to get this blog started for quite some time now, and I finally got around to it! Though it’s way past due, I’m excited to finally have a place to share my thoughts and stories, and to post photos and videos from my travels.

Ideally, this blog will become my voice while I’m away, expressing the most exciting, interesting, and challenging parts of my adventures abroad.

I will start with the inspiration for this blog, which happens to be my recent volunteer experience in Guyana, South America. This was my first solo adventure abroad, and it is certainly one I never want to forget! Though I regret not starting this blog before I left for Guyana, I think I would regret not including it here at all even more! So, better to post about it late than never, I say!

Over the next few weeks, I’ll begin recounting my experiences, as well as reflecting on my time abroad and (hopefully) continue to discover ways it has impacted me.

Once I finish with Guyana, the plan is to move onto the next adventure! As there is never a shortage of opportunities for adventure out there, I should be a busy girl!

Stay tuned!
