The last couple of days have been a roller-coaster of emotions.
I should explain that in about seven weeks I’ll be setting off on a plane to India with only a backpack for company. Just a couple of days ago I found out that a friend I had been planning this trip with had pulled out for personal reasons so I’ll be setting off on a six month journey alone. Can I say Eek?!
My initial reaction was that I had a feeling this would happen, nothing ever really goes as planned does it? I massively encourage everyone to follow their dreams and if now isn’t the time for jetting off all over the globe then so be it; It’s not a decision to be taken lightly. So I was relieved to have the answer I was waiting for, disappointed for the loss of a travel buddy and shitting myself at the idea that it’s just me. Alone. There won’t be anyone to hide behind when I’m not sure of something or feeling completely overwhelmed.
This isn’t just a step out of my comfort zone, this is a bloody world record long jumping leap! But it’s one of the reasons I wanted to do this in the first place. The introvert in me needs to step aside, revel in the challenge and enjoy the ride.
