Then we headed to Barcelona to spend a week in his new city.
I don't know about you, but travel to me is less of a luxury than it is a NECESSITY. I first studied abroad when I was 12 years old when I spent a month in Spain as an exchange student; it changed the trajectory of my life, I am convinced! Travel has taught me more than any class or course ever has. Through travel, I've had the opportunity to know people and their stories which, as a result, forever changed my own; I have learned how very tiny I am, and my "problems" are, in retrospect to the rest of the world; more than anything though, travel has given me perspective and GRATITUDE. Gratitude for the experiences I have, for the people who open their arms and hearts to me, for the way all of it forever changes me.
And that, my friends, is a post that has nothing to do with crafty madness. :)
