TRAVEL

"The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page." - St. Augustine

When asked what my favorite hobby is, the answer is always "traveling." Some days, I wish that I would pick up a cheaper one, like flying kites, gardening or making men sandwiches. I like those things just fine, but everyone has his or her guilty pleasure. Mine is traveling.

Aside from school-affiliated travel, I have spent several weeks traveling to different countries, including Canada, Ireland, England, Spain, France, Belgium, The Netherlands, Germany, Italy and Greece. I hope that I continue to be blessed enough to continue this list until it's so extensive that it would be unsightly to write each one down.
