Our last day approaches and the reality of the bus leaving for London at 5:00 am haunts my dreams of a fun night at the Friends Arms. I am filled with gratitude and so many memories of joy and laughter over the past two weeks. Since being over here, my view of the world has widened immensely. This was my first time out of the United States. Everything from the cars driving on the other side of the road to the new smoothie brands has been exciting to see. I have not felt a single ounce of boredom while here, which is something that is very exciting.
My expectations for this trip were exceeded. I listened to Jane Davidson speak on sustainability in Wales. I have a hard time relating and looking up to politicians because of the nature of the work, and I left feeling incredibly inspired by Jane’s life work and her ability to create change. I will take what I have learned on this trip and remember and cherish it for the rest of my life, and hopefully be able to think about the rolling hills and crashing ocean at Caldey Island when I am feeling bored during my life, because I know it will bring me peace.
