With a six-week long university break stretching out before me and indecisive friends "umm-ing" and "aah-ing" over holiday plans, I decided to travel alone. My solo adventures in Copenhagen, Budapest and Vienna really emboldened me. Corny as it is to say, my solo traveling experience has literally opened up a world of possibilities.
Every time I travel I am reminded of a sentence I wrote in my journal the first time I went to Africa. "Never underestimate the power of people who have nothing to teach you all you need to know about everything that matters." This empty classroom, full of lessons and hope powerfully whispered the same.
