By Mike Antonio. By Julia Hamilton. By Mahlet Moges. By Nasir Fleming. I was the valedictorian of my graduating class. To me, this meant:. With all of these things in mind, I decided to channel my dissatisfaction into action and travel. Unfortunately, plans to visit my aunt and uncle in Lebanon after graduation fell through. This left me beyond disappointed. I needed to remind myself there was more beyond my small town, more beyond the limiting version of myself I landed on in high school. The trip was unconventional, but it was also a chance to pick up the broken pieces of my past travel hopes and arrange them into a new mosaic.
My trip was by no means as admirable as solo travel. Still, I surprised myself by taking the lead. I never had to worry about the logistics associated with travel before this trip. On family vacations, I cruised on auto-pilot while my parents worried about navigating, making reservations, and getting through the airport.
My grandma, who always has my grandpa to lean on, was also outside of her comfort zone. As we would discover many times throughout the trip, our nerves were misplaced. We gave ourselves a million internal high-fives after breezing through security and making it to our gate.

Despite our airport success, the first day started out on a frustrating note. Looking for the Underground City left us embarrassingly lost, and it turns out my one-hundred-day Duolingo streak barely got us a couple of kilometers conversation-wise.

But as the trip progressed, we began to feel bolder and made it our mission to branch out. A defining moment was when we made the trek to Mount Royal. When we looked out on the city, all of the buildings seemed so close. I felt like I could scoop up the city that had disoriented me a few days ago. Having my grandma by my side ultimately enriched my experience. We travel to gain different perspectives, after all, and seeing things through the lens of someone with so much life experience made each moment more meaningful. We also had some of our best conversations while walking around Rue Peel and the surrounding streets.
It was a breath of fresh air and a far cry from the small-town-living we were used to. On our first night, we found ourselves mixed in with a large group of people gathered around a flat-screen. We later learned Rue Peel was blocked off for a Toronto Raptors vs. Golden State Warriors viewing.

My grandma and I definitely stood out amongst the crowd of shouting, drinking Raptors fans. Every time I melt into my anxiety and fears, I always forget to account for the possible joy of coming out of the other side successful.
Seems like that would be an integral part of the story. Nice story anyway though.
