She is just as nervous as you are.

Travel bloggers also need a break.
That time taught me that I really needed a bit of silence and that I appreciate simplicity because I’ve been traveling for three years. You’re just moving so fast and you don’t really have the time to slow down and do these things normally. It was really nice just enjoying simple pleasures.
