18 more days to go! and we have done so much. We bulit a toliet, climbed a volcano, swam in a big volcano lake and much more. Along the way we learned a lot, grew more experince and fought through challenges.
For me this trip has thrown a lot of challenges my way. Back at home I am not use to as much walking as we have done so much of on this trip. The long 8 hour hike up the volcano was a huge but great oppurtunity for me. Being one of the slowest ones I was not able to make it up all the way, just to the viewpoint. I was really upset that I knew there was no way I was going to be able to make it to the top and climb a volcano but with the help of my leader (Topher) he talked me into being okay with what I had done so far and accepting that as an accomplishment. Once I wiped my tears and tied my shoes tighter I headed back down the trail.
I have learned through the challenges I have faced how strong and brave I can be. There has been many times I have second guessed this whole trip but I have not given up and I will continue to not give up and push myself to the end doing the best I can for my supporters and most importantly myself.
