And so... on y va! My alarm is set for 5:30, pushed back 1/2 an hour from 5 after figuring that even with the extra 30 minutes sleep, I'll still arrive 3 hours before wheels-up. Hoping things go hassle-free between here and the airport -- checking out of the apartment, lugging my luggage to the street to get a cab to the bus stop... At least once I'm on the bus, it's easy.
A BIG thank you to everyone who has read and commented on my blog in the past year. I get so excited every time a comment pops up -- it's always nice to know that people are reading and following along with my adventure. I'm definitely planning to continue blogging as I spend a few months at home before the next big trip (Australia/New Zealand/New Calendonia in February).
It's meant so much to hear your feedback. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU.
And so I'll see you when I see you. The world is small -- we'll all be together again. Anyone who ever wants a travel partner, look no further.
