In two weeks I will be traveling outside the U.S. for the first time in my life!
It has taken me a long time to get here, and I’ve tried in the past to travel but I was never able to get things together to make it happen. I always convinced myself something else was
more important. School, money, work, family, you name it and it took my attention away from what I had planned for myself, and I convinced myself I would never be able to afford to take some time off to experience the world.
The big day is around the corner and I’m excited. I got myself a new digital camera, reading up on the places I want to visit (Seville, Granada, Malaga, and Ronda), getting my cash exchanged in to Euros, hotels and flights confirmed. Everything seems to be falling in to place for once and it feels good.
Everything might not be perfect at the moment, but for once I feel like I have control over what I want to do with my life and nothing can stand in the way of my happiness.
I’m really proud of myself for finally being able to do something like this, and I hope it’s not the last I last time I try.
Here’s to trying.
