As I sit here in the airport waiting on my flight to Boston, where I will catch my connection to Reykjavik, Iceland, I’m overwhelmed with the feeling of how blessed I am to have not only the opportunity to travel, but to have something that I’m so sad to be leaving behind. So many people have touched my life in my 22 years in Chapel Hill, and I can only hope that I have in some small way repaid to them all the kindness and love they have shown me. While I will miss it dearly, I’m so thrilled to have the chance to visit a country I’ve always wanted to see and live in one of the most vibrant cities in the world. Next stop, Iceland; ultimate destination, Paris! Follow my adventures on Instagram and Twitter for real-time updates and a healthy dose of photo envy (inspiration for your next trip!). À plus tard, North Carolina!
