It's been such a magical ride since I left home. Europe offered more than just the picturesque scenery and culturally packed foods. I learned so much about myself: how dependent I am of others, how I hate making decisions, how I don't know how to think for myself, how I get uncomfortable sharing my stories, how I get super insecure being out with other human beings, or how I overanalyze any situation. Being able to travel to 10 countries, 20 cities, and meeting tons of other travelers the past 83 days have been a true blessing. I'm SO glad that I decided to go backpacking. Despite my doubts and weaknesses, I managed to get this far and gained immeasurable life skills and knowledge. I will miss crossing bridges, drinking cheap alcohol, tasting friends' homemade cooking, taking mind blowing hikes, hanging out with other couchsurfers, collecting leftover coins from change, dogs that are more than just pets, being people watched, paying to use the toilet, checking out beautiful people, or being asked if my ancestor is from North or South Korea. Thanks for the wonderful experience Europe but it's time to move on. See you later! .
