Haiti, I Miss You

It has been 2 years since I took my trip to Haiti with my best friend, Maria. That is insane! Time is running fast and I can't catch up. Through out this week minor things have been reminding me about my trip to Haiti and showing me how much I miss that beautiful country and it's people. I think what I miss the most about Haiti was my ability to help and actually feel like I was making a difference in the world ( I know... I know... that sounds ridiculously cheesy but its true!) I also miss my best friend so that could be another reason for missing Haiti. I wouldn't call it a vacation... definitely not as carefree as a vacation but it was fun. We stayed in hostels with bunked beds and mosquito nets so it definitely was no Hilton or anything like that haha. But once I took myself out of the picture and understood that truly helping people better their lives went beyond where I slept or what I ate, made the experience a whole lot better than anything I have ever done.

If you want to get involved in helping Haiti move to a brighter and better future, here is the name of the program (Mission of Hope, Haiti) I went with and check out their website to see what you can do to help and even go on a trip to make your own memories about Haiti.

Haiti I miss you but I'll be back one day I promise...
