Back to U.S.A

11:26 A.M, Tuesday, July 22nd (In the plane to U.S)
After all this time I’m finally going back to the U.S. My brother drove me all the way from Belgium to Amsterdam. I held my tears while hugging him and managed not to cry. The plane is very crowded. I just want it to end so I can go home. Dad is going to pick me up.
I learned a great deal during this journey. I learned about freedom and how life without it is very difficult. I learned about independence. I learned how precious life is and why it should not be wasted.
Revisiting relatives made me alive. Going back to Iran ensured me of who I am and what I will do with my life. This journey was the greatest gift. I can’t feel any luckier. Lucky for having a great family and a great life.
Finally Home
I saw my dad after picking up my two heavy suitcases. We hugged after getting out of the airport and drove home. I was so glad to see mom. I had missed them both very much. Our house looked really weird to me. I still feel a bit strange, but I’m happy.

    Glad you had a safe trip home! You mentioned wanting to travel to a lot of other countries. Where next? I’d think it would be difficult for you to choose somewhere other than Iran for your next trip. What will influence your decision?
