Memories to Last a Lifetime

It’s sad to think that my Pligrimage is slowly but surely coming to an end. Well you know what they say, all good things must come to an end. Do I miss the people I left behind that love me back in California, yes I do. Do I want to continue to travel, continue to learn and discover new things, yes, I do. More importantly, do I want to continue traveling to different and new countries with my classmates, without a doubt. Thirteen days ago me and my classmates boarded a plane and flew across the world to connect and deepen our faith with God halfway across the world. Now I am yearning to travel even farther with them. Even though thirteen days may seem little, through these thirteen days I have mended friendships, strengthened friendships, made new friends, and enjoyed time touring Europe with some of the people that I love. I have created many new memories with my classmates here in Europe. It’s sad to think that I only have two or three more years with these people that I have gotten so close to, and oh boy, does time go by fast. If I could take this trip again, I would, I don’t regret a single moment. I want to remember this opportunity forever, and I’m afraid the older I will get the more I will forget. I’m afraid one day I will wake up and only catch a glimpse of what happened during my pilgrimage to Europe. Each night before I pray to God and fall asleep, I replay the day over in my head and thank God for blessing me with such a beautiful experience. I don’t want to forget this experience, and I’m sure that my classmates have helped make this pilgrimage a trip to remember. A trip to remember with memories to last a lifetime. – Makayla Hernandez

  1. Travel is quite enticing! Seeing new places, having new experiences, learning new things, and eating new food–all of it delights and thrills. And, experiencing all of it with your friends makes it all that much better. 🙂
