I remember what it felt like to look out over the vast mountain ranges that seemed to go on forever. In the middle of Summer, but still covered in snow. I was one week into my international adventure, and it was at this moment I realized how beautiful life really is. Being so far removed from my safety net back home, free from the stress of work, school, and the day to day monogamous lifestyle enabled me to free my mind and to see clearer and truer. For the first time in my young, adult life I felt totally removed from myself and what defined me. I was just there, a part of it. It was refreshing, liberating, and truly was a breath of fresh air.
