Elise Boos

"One thing I have discovered in the past seven or so weeks is that this experience /trip/ journey has very little resemblance to what I imagined in my head, and I expect it to be totally different from that which everyone else imagines. I hope I have the words to share it, because really, it is beautiful, on both the days when I feel on top of the world and on the days I wonder what I am doing."
