It all began after waking up from a vivid dream of surfing in El Salvador. Crystal had never thought about returning to El Salvador since she had been there 11 years ago on a volunteer trip, until now that is. There was something about this dream that she couldn’t let go of. Remembering that she had the next two weeks off from work, she started looking into the price of a flight to El Salvador, just out of curiosity. She then started to look into accommodations, the surf and the sites, all out of curiosity of course. She would never dare to travel alone, as a woman to a crime-ridden, gang-thriving, civil-war-ravaged country. But then a funny thing happened, and the next thing she knew, she was set to take off in two days on a solo and spontaneous surf trip to El Salvador. She had no idea that this trip would change her life forever. In her travel memoir, you’ll be reminded that the universe has a funny way of bringing the right people together at the right time for the right reason.“I now realize that the best things that have happened to me in my life were the result of making a bold move, stepping outside my comfort zone and doing something that at the time completely terrified me. From learning how to surf, to paddling for overhead waves, to traveling alone to El Salvador, to quitting my job, my marriage, stepping into the dark abyss of the unknown, to deciding to leave my country for an undetermined amount of time, to writing and publishing a personal memoir, it was always scary, but I wasn’t willing to let fear run my life. And so, to my own surprise, what I have ended up with is the life of my dreams, happier than I ever expected to be”. (--Crystal Carothers, When Dreams Become Reality)
