Standing in line to check in at Qatar Airlines, I already felt out of place. But not in a bad way. I enjoy showing up in a place where I don’t seem to belong. I have always felt that new and different experiences were good for me. I just arrived from Spain about 10 days ago from a semester-long study abroad program. Some people call me crazy for leaving the country again so soon, but how could I pass up an opportunity like this?!
I have always had an open mind toward people and places. Experiencing a new culture is one of the most rewarding feelings for me. For this trip, however, I have no idea what to expect. As I sit here waiting for the 32 hour journey to Nepal to begin, many different ideas float through my head as to what I will see and the people I will meet. The only thing I know for sure is this is the experience of a lifetime and I am going to take advantage of every moment of it.
