【新三才编译首发】十年前,在学校集会时,我正对音乐课上带着可爱笑容的一个男孩做白日梦,这时老师说的话突然引起了我的注意。「我们今天邀请一位客人来向你们介绍一个非常令人兴奋的机会,欢迎……」。

我不记得我面前的新面孔是男性还是女性,更别提他的名字了,因为我在乎的是他背后的PowerPoint演示。温暖的橙色平原、野生动物和微笑的青少年的图像。在大家离开礼堂后,我和几个朋友一起待到最后。 「我想去!」我告诉演讲人。一年多后,我成行了。

差不多16岁时,我把长发剪断,变成了新款时尚的鲍伯头,并且发现我音乐课上的可爱男孩其实是一个花心大萝卜……我将几件Asda T卹和我最喜欢的一件亚麻长裤装进背包里,泪流满面地向要搭客运回机场的妈妈和小妹挥手告别。18个月来策划成人舞会、跳蚤市场和贩卖一个一磅的米脆饼,让我梦想的这一刻成真了。我将离开我的粉红色蛋糕主题卧室整整一个月。我要去肯亚了。

这趟旅程我只记得在抵达内罗毕(Nairobi )时非常疲惫且时差还没调过来,然后坐在一辆感觉似乎旅途没有终点似地小型小巴中,我恶心到甚至无法在抵达时喝一口新鲜的椰子汁。撇开旅行不适外,我迷上这儿了。我的周围环境是我以前从未见过的:一个没有摩天大楼的城市,茅草小屋,开阔的平原上点缀著干枯的灌木丛和枯木。

接下来的30天,我与朋友、同学和三位老师一起度过了一个与我原来的世界如此不同的世界。除了我第一次飞往奥兰多(Orlando)的长途飞行之外,我只经历过度假假期、学校城市远足和一个英国露营地点。但现在我在一个远离家乡完全不同的大陆。这是一种文化冲击,我被迷住了。

我们为期一个月的冒险开始于海滩旁的一周。我现在记不太清楚细节了,但我记得感觉完全放松了。早上5点我会和朋友偷偷溜下床,去看日出。我们会在星空下围坐在营火旁大笑,因为没有城市的烟雾,星空是如此的明亮,我从来不知道夜空看起来那么不一样。那个星期是我青少年时期最特别的一周。我不再是一个戴着眼镜的害羞女孩,而是成了一个(几乎是)时髦的踩着脚下世界的甜蜜16岁女孩。

有几个晚上我们偷喝啤酒,躲避致命的蛇,我们成为一个小小的「肯亚家庭」,然后我们驱车前往Makongeni,在那里我们在当地学校附近设立营地。在接下来的两个星期里,我将承受身体和精神上的挑战,我在非洲的烈日下工作,为教室打地基,同时与将要使用这教室的孩子们互动。孩子们每天包围着我们,自信地用他们令人印象深刻的英语,询问我们来自哪里的问题。我们会观摩他们的上课状况,甚至有时候也下海自己教,感动于他们不断学习的热情。我继续成长;孩子们给我们带来的简单快乐和喜悦使我受到激励。我还发现当你在沙漠中想吃甜点时,花生酱涂在巧克力燕麦饼上就是你所需要的。

我在肯亚度过的30天的最后几天让我从一个度假者变成了一个旅行上瘾者。一路漫长的颠簸之后我们来到了察沃国家公园(Tsavo National Park)。在这里,我睡在一个柳条小屋的双层床上,为了观察野生动物凌晨4点就起床了。在我青少年时期,我第一次停止化妆也不在乎我那未拉直的头发。我的喜悦发自内心。我看到了大象,一群巨大的水牛也观察了一只狮子蹑手蹑脚地靠近在水坑里喝水的瞪羚和斑马,我在这里看到宛如迪士尼动画狮子王里著名的Pride Rock场景。我在野外的那些日子里看到的景像给了我一种强烈的兴奋,及止不住的笑容。这就是我称之为「迪士尼」魔力的感觉,借由探索全球而产生的一种健康成瘾的情感。

我回到家后变了一个人。没有很夸张啦——我又重新穿上我最喜欢的高跟靴 ——但我找到了新的快乐。我想看世界。我是一个旅行者。
