Rite of Passage: Europe

In wanderlust on June 9, 2004 by carinasuyin

I’m breathing with a light and free feeling. It’s a feeling of release and independence as I begin my European journey. Backpacking somehow sets me apart from everyone. Even in this airport. True, people here are travelling, but they each have things to do, deadlines to meet, itineraries to follow, specific things to see. Not me, I’m different. I have everywhere to go and anything to see. My destination is culture and knowledge and experience. Although I’m travelling amongst scores of others, I am different.
