So I am officially off the road as of Monday and let me just say…wow. I saw some of the most beautiful places in this amazing country of ours. Places a photo doesn’t even do justice for. I met some great people, made some new friends. But most importantly, I feel refreshed and like an even stronger person than ever.
Before I left, I was struggling with some things but it’s amazing how just going away for a while and seeing new places can take your mind off of everything and put things into perspective. I came back with a totally clear head and no longer worrying about all the things I was before I left. We are so lucky to be able to have the ability to travel and I know how lucky I am to physically have been able to do it. Getting on and off the motorcoach became fairly routine. I only fell once. I have to say, I’m pretty darn proud of how well I handled it. Traveling alone may not seem like a big deal for some people, but for me it means I’m not defined by my disability and I can do something as amazing as travel, just like my peers. Sometimes I might need some extra help but at the end of the day…I did it!
Lastly, as promised, some of my favorite photos from the trip!
