Chantal believes that this was by far one of the most rewarding experiences of her life. Not only did she grow closer to her parents in a literal sense (they were always staying in very close quarters), but overall as a family they elicited strength and resilience as together they encountered both hardships and beauty throughout their travels.
Chantal has stated that she learned that the world is such a fascinating place and it’s people are a representation of that. “I will forever be grateful to the many cultures, food, languages, and people I’ve met along the way who’ve created permanent places in my heart.”
