Tomorrow I leave to fly to Moncton, New Brunswick from the flatland prairie city of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. I am meeting up with a group of people I called my family for 2.5 months while on our adventure across Canada. I left a naive 21-year-old, small-town girl who knew nothing about traveling let alone biking! I biked further east than I had ever been before EVER!
10 years later I am looking forward to reminiscing about the trip and learning about how everyone is doing. When I think about all that has happened in the last 10 years, I am astounded at all the changes in my life, in my world, and in myself as a person. That trip was a pinnacle moment in my life. It shaped my world like no other experience has.
I have been asked if I feel older thinking about the trip being 10 years ago. Honestly, I don’t feel older, even though I am, but I do feel wiser. I’m looking forward to biking around the east coast of the country with the 30+ people who I made food with, slept in the same gymnasium floor with, biked with, and tried to save the world with. While we never did save the world, we did change the world of the 30+ people that came on this trip.
