{Wednesday Wallace #35}

If you haven’t noticed by now, I have a passion for travel and different cultures.  My life around the globe started just after I turned 17 and I took off for a 3 week trip to Sweden and Denmark.  I was picked to play on a US Christian soccer team and play in an international soccer tournament in Sweden called the Gothia Cup.  I was so excited yet so full of fear to leave my family for over 3 weeks, play on a team with people from all over the US that I had never met and to head across the world to places which I had only seen on maps.  Some silly questions ran through my head at that point.  Will the plane run out of fuel?  Do these places on the map actually exist or is this all a sham?  Will they have In N’ Out there?  Running 6 miles a day and playing soccer teams from Ghana were the least of my worries.  Well, I cried like a baby the night before I boarded the plane and then I came home 3 weeks older, wiser and more cultured wanting to book another trip.  It was so amazing to hear other languages, try other foods, see old buildings with unique character and architecture and be forced to communicate in anyway other  way than speaking.  Now it wasn’t all peaches and cream.  I did miss In N’ Out and having ice in my water.   But I was so blessed to have had my eyes opened to what is out there across our vast globe.  After that I started saving money so I could travel abroad in college.  The seed had been planted and ever since the desire to travel to new places has been rooted deep into my heart.  I have made friends from so many places throughout all my travels and I learned peoples stories and their own personal life maps.  I’m addicted to travel, to stories, to photos of these places and people.  I don’t think I will ever lose this passion of mine.  I never want to lose it.
