Final Post!

Hello for the last time!

Travel can often be bittersweet. Departing on a trip inevitably means leaving comfort, friends, and family behind, whether for two weeks or two years. A sense of loss often accompanies those who are going on a long trip, but it is offset by the excitement of exploring a new place and culture.

As the school year comes to an end, all of the seniors have the next big trip on their mind. College is one of the most important experiences in a person’s life, but it also comes with a huge amount of stress. The same bittersweet feeling that comes with a long trip often also happens for high school seniors who are at a distinct end of an era in their lives. I, for one, have been realizing these past few days that this is truly the last time I will walk the halls of my school and the last time that I will see many of my dear classmates. While I am extraordinarily excited for my next adventure, I will definitely miss the people that have made the past fours years of my life so incredible.

There is something to be learned at a crossroad like this one. Enjoying the time that you are in without wishing to be elsewhere is of utmost importance to living a fulfilling life. If I had spent my whole time in high school wishing I were in college, this wonderful and horrible bittersweetness would not be nearly as meaningful as it is now.

Thank you all so much for reading this year, I wish you good travels!

Sincerely,

Marco Polo
