Readers (reader…singular, plural? are you out there?). I did it.
I ventured far beyond my comfort zone and let me tell you, it was more than everything I hoped for.
Let me start off by saying, it was not easy. I panicked at the airport as my ma walked away. Then I panicked some more in the terminal bathroom as I snapchatted my equally anxious friends… what the actual f*ck am I doing?
And no I was not like “WOOOOO” as the plane took off down the runway and my beloved hometown became a small sparkling gem along the Atlantic, but the one thing I am coming to find is that fear that pushes you to do new and great things should be welcomed. I can’t imagine never having gone on this trip. I feel like I have a whole new mindset and an inner bravery I would have never otherwise found.
That being said, the next few blog posts will be dedicated to the travel experience, candid (when am I not?) experts from my travel journal, little pieces of overseas advice for the traveling diva that I wish I had known before, and plans for more adventures.
Fasten your seat belts readers, we are now ready for take off…
