Our Journey Begins…
A snapshot of our thoughts and feelings of the beginning of our adventure 'down under'...
Julia: My strongest emotion so far on the trip has been comfort; I feel that everyone on the trip is accepting and non-judgmental. Everyone is super easy to talk to and I hope it will get even better and we can open up about more things. Super Epic!!
Charlie: It was liberating from my American boring self, jumping in the Pacific Ocean in Australia for the first time. I truly felt cleansed.
Taylor: Morning yoga with the team has been refreshing and grounding; a beautiful way to start a day. Definitely a practice I hope to take carry back over the seas with me.
Griffin: When I think of what the last few days has been like comradery is the feeling that comes to mind; feeling a part of a group and connecting with people is refreshing and not something that has happened all that often in my life back home.
Jack: Hours and minutes hanging in the kitchen, having our own conversations in a really comfortable way have been my favorite moments since being in Australia. It’s the simple things.
Eliana AKA Bear: The transition from home to Australia has been way easier than I thought. The people in our group have helped me to feel content and I feel a sense of happiness being here. I have loved the car rides, listening to music and singing with everybody. It’s got a vibe of being around my extended family already and we have only been together 3 days.
