I'm anxious about this trip. Part of my thinks I must have been insane to undertake such a journey. I'm not the "roughing it" type. I've never taken a vacation without a wheelie suitcase. I hardly know anything about the history or culture of country I'm visiting, and didn't even know what its currency was until a few days ago. I've never taken a journey that required me to bring toilet paper, and didn't own a pair of hiking boots until a few weeks ago.
By this time tomorrow, I will be flying into unfamiliar lands. I moved to a foreign country by myself, so I like to think I can handle this solo adventure, too. I don't know if this trip will change me, but I want to make me stronger, give me a new clarity. I'm hoping it will be a vision quest of sorts.
I'll be back in a couple of weeks. Don't miss me too much!
