I took a few minutes out of our busy day of packing to interview Samantha (my mom) about traveling around the world.
Me: Hey Samantha! What do you think about this upcoming trip?
Samantha: I am incredibly excited! Also, I have moments where I am nervous about it, but I guess that's a good thing, too.
Me: How did you decide to do this?
Samantha: It's a long story, but I'll tell you the quick version. I was on a plane and I was texting with Tom about how our lives were hectic. That sort of started it off.
Me: What is your project?
Samantha: I love food and thought it would be interesting to look at the everyday food of the places we visit since it says so much about each culture. I might write down some of the recipes, I would love to follow in my dad's steps and even write a cookbook.
Me: How do you think all of us will react to seeing our house after being away for a year?
Samantha: I think it will feel very big.
Me: Thank you, and I hope you have an amazing journey on that adventure!
