I joined a few weeks ago, and didn't get much time to explore all points of the site. Today I found this 'Into' forum and decided to make a post.
I love to travel and want to learn more about other cultures and countries. I haven't really traveled to much seeing as I am 16 and live at home with my Family. During the summers we do travel around Canada, we have been to different places in Alberta. Kelowna, B.C. and cities close to it. Also Kenora, Ontario.
Some day I would like to go to Brazil, Switzerland, Mexico, Germany, Iceland, South Africa, India, China or Japan, and some other places too. Also I would like to visit the rest of Canada.
I love hearing stories of peoples journies to other countries and seeing pictures that tell about a story and an amazing trip.
I would also like to go over to Afganistan. This is one thing I am very serious about doing in the near future. I would like to see how people live in a war zone. How to cope with having bullet holes in the walls of your house. My sisters, friend is a soldier over there right now in one of the most dangerious war zones. The emails back are amazing. all of the things that he has seen in the short time he has been there is amazing, they are terrible but amazing.
It would really make you re-evaluate your life and find want is truely important to you. Finding what is important to you in life is a goal of mine, as of right now, (being 16) there is a lot of things that I don't understand and need to learn. Finding meaning and importance in my life is one of them. and I hope that an amazing journey like this would help me do so. Out of this I would also like to learn how to help people and feel like I have made a difference in the world. That is another one of my goals!
Well I guess I should stop ranting on now. Hopefully I will get to hear many stories of all of your journeys to other places.
