No such thing as a stranger

Once upon a time, there lived a teacher in the country of Nepal. This teacher dedicated his life to not only teaching his students, but to feeding and clothing his students, using many creative ways. Now this teacher had a fight of his own. He was fighting cancer, and secretly dreamed of traveling the world.  
  In April 2015, a monster of an earthquake, with a magnitude of 7.8, came and destroyed much of Nepal.. Three weeks later another with a magnitude of 7.3 struck, killing 100s of people. This teacher stepped forward to help in any way that he could, bringing awareness to the devastation going on in his home.  
  While fighting cancer myself, I started planning my own travels, and posted in the nomad Facebook group for feedback, ideas, and generally read the articles posted by nomads before us. One particular day I shared about my battle with cancer, and how that inspired me to see the world! This teacher responded, sharing his experience, and asking about my cancer.. He let me know that he didn’t have much to offer due to the earthquake, but that I would be welcomed if I were to make it to Nepal.  
  This teacher has now scrimped together several currencies and gotten himself to Paris! He is an inspiration beyond words to me, and I am ecstatic to share with you that we will be meeting in person, in Rome, Italy!  
I’m a little nervous as I really don’t know this person, but my heart says he is a good man.  
I booked his flights this morning, and I’m excited.. I am a writer and I can only imagine this finale to an amazing story on Facebook travel groups bringing people together.
