This past week I spent time traveling with my sister and nephew. We started out going to Cedar Point, one of the biggest amusement parks there is (located in Sandusky, Ohio). I used to go every summer when I was younger, which became a highlight of my time off school. Well, things have changed a bit for me. The older you get, the less apt you are to enjoying standing in lines for hours. While my thrill for the actual rollercoasters has not changed at all, my overall impression of the whole package has. After a day of walking around, standing in lines, and riding rides I was absolutely exausted: physically and mentally. When all was said and done, I had lots of fun…but enough to hold me over for a few years to come.
After our rollercoaster adventures we ventured back to my hometown to spend time with friends and supporters. It was nice to see old friends and catch up on their current lives. I also had the opportunity to talk about Africa, what I did there, and upcoming projects I am looking forward to.
ps. And I got to have my favorite, Tim Hortons, coffee and doughnuts 🙂
