What do you hope to achieve from this trip?
Well to start with, the biggest achievement so far is actually going on this trip. Leaving my job and all of my family and friends is such a huge thing for me and a massive risk. On this trip I would love to be able to change at least one child’s life for the better. If I can do that then I have achieved exactly what I wanted to. If we can give these children hope for the future, well, I think thats something very special. I also see this as a huge part of learning a lot about myself and challenging myself. Im excited to see how I deal with a new way of living, and mostly growing as a person. Experiencing and Learning about other countries, cultures and how other people live who may not be as fortunate as us. I want to appreciate what we have and not take anything for granted in our day to day lives.
I most excited about going and venturing through South America. South America is the one place I have always dreamt of going. Im really looking forward to travel the world with Drew and meeting amazing, inspirational people on the way.
The place which scares me the most is Africa. The thought of driving through the different countries – just the 2 of us – makes me a little nervous, but excited at the same time. But the thing that really scares me is knowing that I will be seeing some shocking sights in some of the countries we visit, which may really effect me mentally and emotionally.
