Re: How has travel changed you?

Since October of 2017 I had been planning to spend 10 days in the Lake George area camping with my siblings.  I had been feeling a lack of self direction and wanted to go see my family.  The trip was 1500 miles in each direction, which I was breaking into 500 mile days.  As the time for the trip approached, I was a little nervous about my ability to drive the whole thing myself.  But after the first day on the road I felt so good at having done it, I couldn't wait for the next day! It really made a difference to my outlook to know I could do this!
