While this trip is definitely considered to be my dream vacation, I also hope to take something meaningful out of this experience. As I am only 21 years old, I realize that I will still have forever to travel and visit the many important landmarks of the world – the Berlin Wall, where my grandparents were from, the museums of New York… the list goes on. I chose however to make this my dream vacation because when I think of the word dream, I think of a place where I can be selfish and do what I want, when I want and however I please do to so. I realize that all my travels should be like this (to some extent), but I know if I were to pick a place such as Italy, I would feel obliged to fit in all the important monuments, such as the Colosseum, the Vatican City, the Sistine Chapel, to name a few, and I would spend less time on myself. This trip for me is all about learning about myself not only as a traveler but also as a person. I am hoping to overcome a few fears, try new foods and decide what I do and do not like, and do all this in a place that is completely new to me.
This is my idea of a dream vacation, and i just cannot wait to finally be able to embark on this adventure!
