I cleared out my room this morning and got rid of some stuff that have been lying there for ages. Some things like receipts from my very first overseas trip to Mali about two years ago. I remember how excited I was about going on that trip because it was the very first company trip I had ever taken. I remember how excited I was about going off to the Dark Continent and a country where very few people went to. Now, several trips later, I still have that spark of enthusiasm especially when I'm going somewhere new but it's never the same as the very first time, is it?!
