When I was 15 years old I took a school trip to Europe. We spent two weeks touring the countries of Germany, Austria, Italy, Monaco, France, and England. I had my first experience with alcohol in an English pub, experienced my first topless beach, and visited a monastery that held a piece of the cross Christ died on…at least they claim. It was an adventure I’ll never forget.
As we get older it seems the opportunities for adventure get fewer and fewer.
The opportunities that do come along we often let pass by because of fear, responsibilities, finances, or a combination of these things and others.
But when an opportunity came along to travel with Compassion to Kenya for free, I jumped at the chance.
So, for the next week or so I’ll be documenting my adventure on the blog. This will help me process everything I experience, while sharing it with my family and friends.
If you have no interest in my adventure, no hard feelings, I hope to see you back here in a week or so.
For everyone else, get ready to go with me on a journey across the world, my flight is leaving soon.
I’d love to hear about the biggest adventure you’ve ever been on. Let us hear about it in the comments below. And if you don’t want to miss out on a single update, make sure to subscribe to the blog and get email updates along the way.

My biggest adventure was when I was 18 and in college. We took a trip to Ireland and it was an experience I will never forget. I got to see the most amazing castles, eat delicious food, and even found out my tolerance to alcohol was a lot higher than I had anticipated. We learned about the criminal justice and fire science aspect of Ireland, as well as other things in the history of Ireland. The only drawback about my trip was I was 18, it was away from my family, and I was thousands of miles away with people I didn’t even know. To say I was homesick was an understatement. I had the greatest time of my life except if I was sitting around I started overthinking things and began to get sick. That is the only thing I regret about my trip. If you ever make it to Ireland, you need to check out The Rock Of Cashel as well as Kilkenny. They are the most beautiful castles and towns I have ever seen.
Wow! Great for you! We are excited for you. Enjoy and experience all you can. Sounds like you will only be gone a week? But you can see a lot in a week. We see a lot when we just stay in a town overnight. May God bless you in your travels. An old Irish saying goes “may the blessings of each day be the blessings you need most.”
