So today after church I put my nose to the grind and began researching ticket prices for flights between overland travel to supplement my appending trip around the globe. I went to BootsNall which took me to AirTreks where I provided them with locations in which I plan to fly to in between my travel by bus/rail/car/foot/tuk tuk/camel/donkey/the list goes on....
Nairobi, Kenya > Rome, Italy:
"There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and will be lost. The world will not have it. Keep the channel open, follow your heart, and everything else will take care of itself."
