There's six of us. Alvin, Clara, Emma, Myka, Eli, Lucy. We each have a backpack - clothes, books, toothbrush, and comfort items. We also bring fears, hopes and prejudices. This will be a time of unlearning and discovering, giving and receiving. Not to mention a time of eating amazing foods and meeting a diversity of people. Thanks for coming along!
(now in a 15 year old's perspective...)
This is Emma Der, the eldest daughter of this journeying family of six. Myka Der is 13 and the younger two (Eli & Lucy) are 9. So i was literally born with a burden of responsibility that i sometimes lack. I've been whisked away from my high school freshman year to basically journey around (mostly) Asia and Europe. Do i mind being stuck with them? Not as much as i thought, but you'll have to find out my real thoughts through my blogs.
And by the way, we are NOT from Japan or China but are Canadian. Sending love from wherever we are! Bye.
