This is me leaving the house this morning because today I travelled to London to stay over night before catching my flight early tomorrow morning for my year of travelling.
Leaving Boston, and my friends, was a feeling of mixed emotions. I am excited about the adventure but know I will miss the people and the life I have enjoyed in Boston since I arrived about 8 years ago.
Mixed emotions pretty much sums up my feelings about this whole adventure so far. I am as equally excited as I am scared. I have felt like this before when I have made, and followed through with, life changing decisions in the past. They always turn out for the best, though not always with the outcomes I expect.
This is the first step in a new chapter and I have no idea how it is going to turn out, but one thing I do know is that I going to experience each and every moment that I can to get as much as I can out of this opportunity. An opportunity that I have managed to make happen by selling the house, renting a room and living of half my salary for 18 months to save the rest for this journey.
So here goes!
