This is going to be a journey of a lifetime. Instead of having a big,extravagent celebration to commemerate my 21st Birthday, I thought I would embark on a soul-searching trip, on my own, to the most spritual place I could think of, Bhutan. Bhutan is a country where happiness comes before economic growth and it is one of the few countries in the world to have negative carbon emmisions with environmental preservation as the core guilding principle in it's constituition.
I find myself drawn to Bhutan because I strive to achieve the same values and beliefs that they have for life and the environment. I wish to learn from them and to find out for myself their secret to happiness and inner peace.
I am currently working very hard to save money for this trip on my own but I could use a little help! This is just an idea of an alternate gift (if you were planning on giving me something) to make this a very meaningful birthday for me! Let's make this trip happen! Thank you!!!!
