Taking the road less traveled is often hard. There is no clear path towards where you are heading, but those that do take it, know that it will be far more rewarding than just following the rest of the crowd. That world knowledge and life experiences from different cultures is really one of the best ways to grow as a person. So many people think they know the world but are only really just seeing it from their TV screens. In the end, you realize that there is more good than bad in this world and that respecting other cultures comes from experiencing and understanding where they come from and their way of life.

“Adventure is a path. Real adventure – self-determined, self-motivated, often risky – forces you to have firsthand encounters with the world. The world the way it is, not the way you imagine it. Your body will collide with the earth and you will bear witness. In this way you will be compelled to grapple with the limitless kindness and bottomless cruelty of humankind – and perhaps realize that you yourself are capable of both. This will change you. Nothing will ever again be black-and-white.”Mark Jenkins
