As of this writing, I’ll be leaving the United States in about 24 hours.
I’m completely overwhelmed with emotions. I am excited to be in a new country, overjoyed to see Johnny again, cranky about the almost 30 hours of travel time ahead of me, happy that I’m going to see my BFF, sister, baby niece and have In n Out as my last meal in America, and having my fair share of pre?trip jitters (stomachache included).
This is easily the biggest adventure of my life. The longest time I’ve been out of the country is 5.5 months. And these were times before crazy ass weight restrictions and I could bring 12 pairs of shoes abroad. Sigh.
But I just wanted to tell you all thank you. Thank you for the comments, the emails, the tweets, the FB posts. Thank you for all the words of encouragement and the packing advice. Thank you for reading.
I promise this next year is definitely going to be a crazy ass ride.
