into the unknown

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!

you will do great! i know a few people who have been there and have loved it. it's obviously far less touristy and comfort oriented as places in europe but i am sure the fact you are going with a tour group will add alot in terms of comfort and safety, esp in regards to camping.(you did say you were going with a group, right?)

i think in next 3 months i will know an additional 7 or 8 people who are making similar trips (only together, not in a group).

it will be awesome. i am super jealous, if my health were up to it, this would so much more be my style instead of CR.

You'll have a great time. Think of it as a new adventure and of all the stories you'll have to tell. Just don't forget the toilet paper!
