It is amazing the people that I have been able to reconnect with by traveling. All over the world I have met up with people that I have met else where around the world. I have been so fortunate to meet so many cool people as I travel around one day at a time.
Not only is visiting friends great because it creates a powerful connection, but also because you are able to see a lot of the local sights opposed to only the touristy things. Thanks to all of those people I have stayed with or visited while making my way around this beautiful world.
Recently, I visited many of the friends I had met while studying abroad in Spain. My study abroad program was through University of Oregon, so the majority of the students were from (or live in) Oregon. The other Michigander and I decided to visit the Oregonians, and I am so glad I did…
While in Eugene, I also met up with a friend who I met working at a summer camp. He was born in the United States, grew up in France, worked at the same summer camp I worked at, and now living in Eugene. The world really is a small place and getting smaller!
Also on the west coast, I stayed with my uncle and aunt in Eatonville, Washington .
Some other people I have reconnected with along my travels are…
Cristina from Madrid, Spain. She studying for a year at my high school; while I was studying abroad in Spain, I stayed with her family in Madrid for a weekend.
In Scotland, I visited these two boys who I met working at the summer camp in Michigan. I went out for a night in Glasgow and explored the Scottish Highlands with them.
I stayed with Matt in Birmingham, England. He brought me to Cadbury World — YUMMMMM! I also met him at the summer camp in Michigan.
In Cardiff Wales, I visited one of my very good friends that I met at summer camp in Norther Michigan (he has returned multiple years, as I have). We went and explored a lot of nature including waterfalls and beaches!
In London, I stayed with some friends from camp, Jodie and JP.
While in London, we also met up with another friend from camp, George.
