I used to be able to sleep on planes. Not sure if I’m awake because this flight is unbearably hot, or if I’m just excited to finally start my trip. Either way, its 2:30 in the morning and I’m restless. London is the first stop, and I get to ease into the trip by spending the first two days with my good friend Melina. She was the one who encouraged me to pull the trigger and book this trip. I’m so happy my first few days will be with her! Then I’m off on my own and the solo travel really begins. And yes, I’m very nervous but I’m looking forward to the things I will learn about myself along the way. The yawning has taken over, going to try and catch a few more Z’s before we land.
With 7 days to go I’m feeling a bit better than I was last week. I still haven’t figured out where I’m staying throughout the trip, but I have packed up my house and moved things into storage, I have practiced packed my Kelty pack, and I am now officially living out of it. I just practiced showering in my Jessie Sandals by Xero Shoes And yes, that was a necessary step in the process. I have also napped and I did drink that bottle of wine. So yes, I am feeling a bit more ready, but I do have plenty of things to accomplish in the next week!
No. No I am not. I am completely freaking out! I leave in 13 days and the only thing that I really have planned are my flights. I still need to figure out where I'm staying throughout the trip and all the things I want to see. I need to write scripts for the travel show I'm hosting through Snowman Films, I need to pack up my house and move everything to storage, remove all the nails from the walls and spackle. I need to practice pack my new Women's Kelty Zyp 48 pack at least three times, I need to see all my friends before I go. But really all I wan to do is drink a bottle of wine and take a nap. That's a lot to do! So no, not fully excited about my trip yet, but talk to me next week and hopefully my opinions will have changed!
