Dubrovnik, Croatia was our last and final stop in Europe. We had an incredible backpacking trip and were so lucky to end it on a high note. Although Dubrovnik can be quite touristy we were able to make friends with the locals and found out how to avoid the crowds. We took a fantastic kayak trip, journeyed out to a nearby island that was so peaceful and learned about the history filled city.
I'm so grateful for my adventurous mother who reminds me to let go of my fears, explore, try new things and never stop learning! It's okay to be lost every now and then because you never know when you are going to run into something beautiful, a quaint restaurant or a new friend. My big sis teaches me to be myself, love others and doubt less. Travel can do amazing things for the soul! From strengthening relationships to creating new ones, you can learn a lot about yourself as well as others. You can realize that although the world is surrounded by different cultures who may talk, eat and dress differently, they all believe in the importance of family, friends, love, laughter, faith and hope.
