And……America!!! After traveling so much, it’s so comforting to be back in our country, around people who understand us and whom we understand.
We got up early again, our trip down to the airport felt nostalgic since we had made it before on our journey from Ireland to France. Time seemed to go fast. And before we knew it, it was time to board our plane to Toronto! We were just as excited to go home as had been to leave.
Much to our surprise, our long flight to Toronto didn’t feel as long and dreary as we had anticipated. We kept ourselves occupied by reading, listening to music, and enjoying the food that Air Canada had to offer.
Once we arrived in Toronto, we breezed through customs and prepared for the last stretch taking us to Montreal.
At last! We arrived in Montreal and were very warmly greeted by Kathleen’s mom and her friend Kim. They were thrilled to hear our many adventurous stories and had a bunch of snacks for us to enjoy. From Montreal, we drove down to Vermont.
We can truly say that this trip has had a huge impact on us and on the way we see the world. There were many very difficult moments where we questioned why we were doing this in the first place, followed by many intensely exciting moments where we felt so privileged.
The trip was different that what we had expected it to be, there wasn’t exactly one moment or experience that completely changed us or transformed us; yet, our experience as a whole helped give us a more realistic outlook on life and taught us appreciation for different cultures as well as our own.
Thanks so much for sharing this journey with us! We wish you all the best in your own adventures in life.
