I’ve left my job. Gave away my cat (to a loving friend). And Saturday I sold my car. It’s really real now.
I’m about to take off on a trip. Yes I have a plan, I have googled and read many lonely planet guides and set airplane ticket price alerts. But I’m also getting ready to trust my intuition. My friend Hannah was recently telling me about the first time she went abroad; she says that looking back she was a different person because while in a strange place you feel more and trust yourself more. You feel whether getting on a train heading to Vienna instead of Amsterdam is right, and you trust that feeling.
And right now, my intuition is telling me this is the right decision.
Before I officially ‘leave on my European trip’ I’m heading to Hawaii (Maui) with my Mom and then Panama with my Grandad. But I wanted to start my journey officially with Vermont, and this is my last night here, sharing hot chocolate with friends in front of the fire. It’s a great start!
