Lowlights: safety of drinking water, seeing discrimination against women, only getting to see Cairo and Alexandria in Egypt

Recommendations to anyone looking to do something similar: stay longer in Italy. If you have any questions about any of the areas, cities, countries, etc I visited, don’t hesitate to contact me via Twitter, email, blog, Facebook, in-person.

What I learned: everything I saw and experienced, I will be the only one ever in the world to experience. We are very much influenced by those around us. However, regardless of socioeconomics, family, education, there can only be one of you who has had all the tiny experiences leading up to today.
