I was recently talking to someone about the places I have traveled and when I said I had spent four months in Lithuania, they got excited because that is where their family is from but they had never met someone who had been there. It was great to get to talk about my experience there and Lithuanian history and culture. It has been two years since I was there and I don’t get to talk about it very often.
While I was in Lithuania I kept a scrapbook/journal for postcards and tickets from place I visited while I was there. Talking about my travels with my friend led to me looking back through my journal.
In a week and a half I will be going on my first overseas travel since coming home from my semester abroad. I am excited to get to add new experiences to my travel journal.
