Travel Quote of the Week: “All journeys have secret destinations of which the traveller is unaware.” – Martin Buber
After a few months of rest and recuperation at home from my last humanitarian work in South Sudan, I am finally leaving for my next assignment in another country. When I was offered the new job, I immediately accepted without researching about my new host country. I have heard about it in the news as the world’s longest running civil war. But other than that, I am unaware of its other aspects (such as cultural, geographical, historical, economical among others). Although I have read the crucial bit of the country’s profile particularly on the security aspect (I know I can just google the information or read from my briefing orientation notes), but I prefer to learn more while in country rather than depending on available literature prior my journey. I am excited to find out its uniqueness to my previous other host countries and to explore its road less travelled destinations. It will be another challenging experience for sure, but I know that at the end of it all, I will come back home with new learnings and a much wider perception on how to live life to the fullest.
To all my followers, I apologize once again if I will not be as active as I promised I would be in blogging this year. Nevertheless, I will still continue to find time to post once in awhile if my situation permits to do so.
