Sierra Leone: The Adventure Was Trying to Leave

I used to be a control freak. I used to be a really anxious traveler. I used to think that comfort came from knowing all the possibilities and being prepared for them. I used to think it was all about getting to the destination. I used to think that happiness came from control. I used to think getting to the airport 3 hours in advance wasn’t a suggestion, it was imperative. Sierra Leone changed me. It showed me that things work out, smiles help, and stress doesn’t. Sierra Leone showed me it really IS about the journey, even if that journey is to the airport.
