Last day of my trip

My journey has come to a close. What started as a challenge and a celebration of my 35 years here, I’d always wanted to do a trip completely around the world. 161 Days, 23 weeks, 3,864 hours covering 35,000 miles to places in Asia, Middle East, Balkans, and the north of Africa, I accomplished what I set out to do. I’m extremely proud of myself, my planning, and my courage to go on this journey, and I am coming home with a renewed sense of self and appreciation for my life. I have been extremely lucky on this trip with health, safety, and overall, have little negative experiences in all that I’ve seen and done.
