What’s the first
you ever traveled to?
As you read this, I am standing/sitting/possibly laying down (I’m not exactly sure WHEN you’re going to read this) for the first time on foreign soil. While I am fairly well-versed in the terrain of my own country, I only recently picked up my passport and decided to book a flight to visit friends I’ve made via social media, but have yet to meet in real life. And while there are many places I could visit where I would find such people, I decided to start with the ones I know in Los Angeles.
Where it is sunny and warm.
I’m actually writing this before I’ve left, so I have no idea what it feels like to be in a place you can’t legally call your home. I can’t imagine it being TOO different, but maybe that says more about my imagination than anything else.
I realize I’m rather old to be traveling out of country for the first time, but for much of the life I had neither the motive or funds for such fanciful ventures. I feel like now that I’ve started, though, it’s going to become a much more frequent occurrence.
So, what was the first time you ever left your country and where did you go? And why?
