After spending two months in Europe, my journeys have sadly, but finally come to an end. But certainly not forever. I have no doubt that I will one day go back to Europe. And revisit the countries I have grown such fond memories of this past summer. And hit the many countries I still have yet to visit.
London and Italy were both incredible experiences that have begun to open my eyes to the world. It has shown me both how similar and unique each individual culture is. In the end, we’re all just humans who have grown up in different places.
On Sunday, just two days from the present moment, I will head back to Philly, move into my new apartment and get ready for classes to begin on Monday. Where has the time gone? Each summer slips quicker than the last. Each summer also seems to surpass the last.
One thousand sweet potato plants, a few plates of tacos paired with a kick ass story, 15 something British candy bars, and a whole lot of pasta, wine, and breathtaking sights later, I am alas leaving the summer to start yet another phase in my life. My life seems to be one bewildering multiplex of endless fascinating and illuminating changes. Cheers to whatever comes next.
