First off.

While my about page will give you a short synopsis of why I am starting this blog, I think it is fitting for the first post to help elaborate. I am 21 years old, and I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Hodgkins Lymphoma on December 21, 2016. In all honesty, it hasn’t sunk in. I am now on my third round of chemotherapy, and the boredom has set in. I stay home a lot because my counts are low, but my heart wants to be somewhere else.

That’s why I’m starting this blog. In this blog, I am going back to the multiple countries I have visited. I am going to flamenco in Spain, have lunch with my best friend in Paris, and hold the hand of a beautiful Rwandan child. I hoping that stories and ideas from past travels will evolve into future travels.

I am going to let the posts wander, as I let my mind and feet wander. Some posts will tell stories from previous adventures, others might just give thoughts about travelling in general.

  1. Wow, what a tough hand to play. I’ve survived a lot of sh*t but the medical life threatening challenges were not dealt when I was young, I am multiple morbidity but of all the sh*t the two brain surgeries were the hardest, but they came when I was older and on my feet. This is tough coming just as you are exploring who you are and what you want to do with your life. The battle with sickness can define you and consume all your time when you are in the heat of that battle.. As an old, tough survivor I can tell you a lot of it is in your mind…the healing of the body, the surviving and living life to the fullest. I wish you strength to see you through this!

    1. Thank you so much! Yeah it definitely sucks that this came so young, but this blog has reminded me how much I have already experienced, and how much I need to experience more of the world. While this cancer is the worst, I am not letting it define me. I am glad to hear these words from someone that went through something even more intense. Thank you for sharing!
