“Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer”

Every now and then life affords us opportunities that could never possibly be recreated, retold or even fathomable. It is up to us to keep our hearts open to these possibilites and the doors will always be opened. We have to be willing to say yes, to take risks and to step outside of comfort.

I have officially been home for only two days and I still am just beginning to process the past month and its incredible, life changing impacts that it has created in my life. My friends and family are anxious to hear of the experience, but it is true when you hear that the only people that will ever truly understand are the ones that you were fortunate to share the experience with. For this I am grateful.

If I could offer anything that I learned this past month in as little words as possible I would say…..

keep your heart open

travel often and truly as often as possible

don’t ever let your misconceptions get in the way

always love

always learn

don’t ever let your fears get in the way

always remember there is infinite beauty in the world

we are all here to connect with one another

in life true happiness should be of utmost importance

lastly, care and love like Brazilians care and love each other. Be quick to give hugs, kisses, affection and genuine help to those around you. This can heal, connect, grow and fulfill meaning in life.

I will leave you with some of my favorite moments of my journey….
