A fourteen hour flight followed by a ten hour layover and another flight is especially daunting, however with this group of people on the 2018 Swamp Corp Kenya trip, the journey has been full of nothing but smiles. I'm incredibly grateful to have the opportunity to be here with these amazing individuals, and after having an impromptu group nap session in the Doha airport, I'm sure there's nothing that could dampen the joy of this group. I can't wait to get to Kenya, and even though I am nervous because it's my first Swamp Corp trip, I'm incredibly excited for everything to come!
