      ... with a thank you note when she receives a gift.

      I opened the package assuming it was an early Christmas gift since I will be on my journey during the holiday season. Instead, there was a necklace, yoga shirt, mini candles and a note that wished me good luck in India and how proud she was of me. I actually felt my heart swell.

      The nerves I've been feeling about leaving my family ...

      The objective throughout the trip is to avoid interstates, so we took the Loess Hills Scenic Byway north towards the Nebraska – South ...
