As I am sitting in the taxi and heading to the airport, "Don't worry be happy" came on the radio. It was kind of fitting for the end of my trip. While I am sad to leave, as I am every year, I can only think of such wonderful happy memories of the past two weeks in Europe. And to be honest, I can hear Valer's voice in my head saying, "no worries Katie. It's not a problem!"
It is truly amazing that every trip I make with Global Village is unique and special and will always hold fond memories in my heart. This thing called Habitat never gets old and never goes out of style. I honestly believe that every person should experience a trip like this once in a lifetime (or more of course!). I have met some of the most amazing people on my teams throughout the years and have worked with the most kind-hearted and loving crew out there and that's my friends from Habitat Beius. I have witnessed the good in humanity and have the blisters to prove I didn't just sit on the sidelines.
As I leave this beautiful city if Budapest and miss my favorite summer home in Beius, I am reminded how lucky and fortunate that I am able to have these experiences every summer. No matter what struggles we go through in life, no matter how many curve balls we are given, we can still sit back and say "no worries Katie. It's not a problem!" We can conquer it all and help little little Seba and his sister grow up in a nice house.
Is there a lot of work out there to be done? Of course! But as Ken from Nebraska said, "if we all do a little bit, we'll get to the final finished product."
So my question for you - what little bit will you do today? This month? This year? You certainly don't have to travel to Romania in 100+ temperatures to do your little bit!
Although I highly suggest it!!
I will certainly miss this view
And these folks!
My next post will be from the USA!
