Wanderlust: a strong desire to travel 

Often we get so caught up in our own lives and fail to realize just how much is out there waiting for us. I have the urge to see different countries, meet different people, experience new things and new cultures, and see what else the world has to offer. 

This holiday season was a lot different than the ones in my past. I have never spent Christmas away from my family, but this year I did. Instead of flying home, myself and a few other victory scholars decided to satisfy some of our travel desires. We went to Berlin, Prague, and Amsterdam over the course of 9 days. Each place was a new and exciting experience. They all had amazing Christmas markets, each with their own twist (and their own DELICIOUS food!!). Berlin was the source of a lot of history learning, Prague’s beauty took my breath away, and Amsterdam’s laid back vibe is one I will never forget. I am so thankful that Sport Changes Life has provided us with the opportunity to be in a place that makes traveling so easy, while also providing us with such great people to travel and enjoy experiences with. I can’t help but wonder how I have lived for so long with so little knowledge about the rest of the world, and I look forward to continuing my travels when the next opportunity arises!!
