When you’re visiting somewhere new, there is often an underlying tension and anxiety inside of you that doesn’t resolve itself until you actually get there and experience the place firsthand. That’s what happened to me when I visited Africa. I was initially tense and nervous because of the stories I had heard from friends, articles I had read online, and coverage in the media. But, as it turned out, Africa was a life-enriching experience. I realized the underlying fear everyone feels when traveling somewhere new would always be there, and it was actually important to face that angst head on and go explore despite these feelings.
