Lessons Learned

Well, here I am. Back in the “real world.” Re-entry has been interesting. Now I’m busy trying to process everything that has happened during the last nine months, while at the same time figure out what to do next. In looking back at my trip, here are some of the things I’ve learned:

Most people in the U.S. don’t know how to correctly use a round-about.

Oregon is a beautiful place.

I like Eugene, but can also live without it.

Good bourbon is hard to come by.

What makes a place really special is the people you meet there.

The air on top of a mountain smells better.

Nothing beats sleeping in your own bed. (Ok, almost nothing…)

Liar’s Dice is especially fun when played in a foreign country with people who don’t speak english.

Hippos are more dangerous than they look.

Good friends are really, really, really important. Keep in touch and let them know this.

I can do anything I want now.

I don’t know what I want to do now.

There’s more, but I can’t give it all away. You’ll have to go find somethings out for yourself.
