“I really enjoyed my time being a travel scrub for so many reasons. The sightseeing was just the beginning of the greatest adventures. I traveled alone which gave me the strength I never knew I had. It developed my sense of independence and self-awareness. I saw how the need for help is out there and how appreciative they were for a blind willingness to help. I found out more about myself on my travels than I could ever have by trying to stay at one job, plus I got to see the country.”
