I want to feel the sensation of lifting off in a basket and moving along with the flow of the air. Then, in my time off during the summers I want to travel the around the world. The top four places I have in mind now are the Holy Land (Israel), Rome (Italy), Machu Picchu (Perú), and Spain. After a couple of years working as a teacher, I want to open a learning center in my dad’s...
