“In the beginning of this adventure when I would tell people I was doing a Round the World trip I think a part of me didn’t really believe it. I would tell them my itinerary and inside be laughing at myself because in truth my reaction mirrored theirs. I’m now halfway across the world in New Zealand and almost halfway through this trip, and I finally believe myself. I really am doing a RTW trip. I am around the world right now. This is happening, it’s real, I made it.”
