This trip was a real blessing because it allowed me to be fully present in the moment, to get to know myself better, to gain a lot of self-esteem and to open-up to others. People are still telling me how this trip changed me and helped me blossom. I learned to be more tolerant and not be influenced by my own prejudices.
