I should have spent the day unpacking but it was way too nice outside so I headed to the beach. It is so good to be back here. I feel really good about it. Besides how amazing it is here, it will be nice to catch up with old friends and to make new ones.
I am so grateful that I got to go to London. I had incredible experiences, learned a ton, met amazing people and got to see some incredible parts of the world. I feel like I learned a lot about myself as well.
Here are some of the things I am taking away from my time abroad:
-Family is extremely important to me and being near them makes me happy.
-The world is full of best friends just waiting for the right opportunity to be discovered.
-I like sunshine!
-My "list" will only get longer the more I travel.
-A good book can be great company.
-The "pride cycle" is real and very easy to fall into.
-Be grateful for freedom - it's something we take for granted but that people through the ages have spent and given their lives fighting for.
-Seeing something amazing ( i.e. the Berlin wall) can be just as cool as meeting someone famous.
-One of the great parts of traveling is coming home.
