Good morning, readers!
I’m now beginning another weekly post, “Shout-Out Saturday.” The premise is to select one person who I believe deserves to be recognized for the amazing writing, blogging, photography, or even the amount of crazy work they’ve done! I liked being able to post a few weeks ago about some people who have deserved some recognition for what they’ve done. I’d like to continue to do this though. There are many more people who didn’t get mentioned in that post.
This week, I’m going to give you this website:http://collidingwiththeearth.com/. I had subscribed to this blog a few months ago but only just recently began following the posts on it. The person who writes this blog, Jessica, is someone who is very close to my age and is doing something that I’ve always dreamed of doing. She’s visiting different countries on her own and blogging her experiences in them. Currently, she’s touring South East Asia, is in India at present and had previously been to Nepal on this specific trip. She’s also been to Ghana, Guatemala, Tanzania, Belize, Egypt, and Peru!
She is truly an inspiration to anyone in their 20’s who has wanted to get out and see the world but has been nervous about doing it on their own. Reading her posts makes you feel as if you are right there, though. Her descriptions are vivid and her pictures of the places she goes are quite breath-taking.
Just recently, I read her post about her trek up Khopra Ridge and loved every word of it. She puts a lot of time and effort into uploading these pictures and writing these long posts for people because she wants to share her experiences with us. Won’t you visit her site, like some of her posts, and comment on what she’s accomplished so far?
