"Wherever you go…there you are." 

Meagan's most memorable travel story was on a solo trip to India. She was staying at the Leela Palace in Udaipur. One morning she went to a ritual ceremony to the god Vishnu that was held before sunrise. She was the only foreigner at the ceremony. Even with language and cultural barriers, those participating in the ritual wanted Meagan to be a part of it, as well. They led her to the altar and through signs and demonstrating showed her how to take part in the ceremony. It was a perfect combination of everything she loves about travel.

She also got into a huge fight in broken Italian with an airport security guard at the airport in Rome...but that's another story for another time.
