I had been wanting to visit Europe ever since I was a little boy and was unable to.Instead I left my native country barely a young adult to come here(Toronto).I've been to the States several times and have visited a few African countries(Burundi,Congo,Uganda,Kenya).
Each time I'd come back a changed man.For instance the 1st trip back to Africa made me realize how short and priceless life is and I came out to pretty much to everyone in my familly which wholefully changed my life.
This summer I went to Europe and I visited France,Germany and Belgium(where I have relatives) and I can't believe how much perspective that experience trew my way.I came back to Toronto and...well...without saying much,let's just say that I left my former job that I had for four years for a new one,which pays me better and allows me to explore other horizons.
So in the words of Shaggy,I'll sum it up as follow:
"I guarantee you that if half of the people in America used their passports a little bit more and travelled to countries like Afghanistan, Cairo and Dubai, (U.S. President George W.) Bush wouldn't have won and we wouldn't be in this situation."
