So growing up I’ve always imagined doing things. Like road trips, weekend getaways, buying a plane ticket blindly, and some many more things I dream of doing.” I’ve lived in my imagination my whole life. Dreaming of things I would love doing, but knowing that they most likely won’t happen.
Traveling the world is one of these things. I’ve aleays dreamed of traveling the world, to Europe and going to a new country everyday. Traveling to Australia and road tripping to a different beach everyday. To Asia again, and revisiting Tokyo. Living out of a van exploring highway 1 in the states. Backpacking across the mountains, every mountain I can think of. Diving into deep blue salt water.
But here I am. Little over a month. Plane ticket and passport in hand, visa on the way. Class scheduled, air BnB booked. It’s happening. I’m going to Australia. I’m going to live there for 5 months, taking classes, and going to a different beach every chance I get. Taking in a culture so similar but yet so polar opposite to the one I grew up in. Living out a dream unlike anything I could imagine.
The closer we get to the end of the semester, the closer the end of the year gets, the more nervous I get. The more excited I get. The more I realize that this is no longer something I dreamed up that isn’t going to happen, it’s happening. I’m going to Australia. I am going. There’s no question or turning back anymore.
It’s so surreal to think this time in two months I’ll be sitting on the other side of the world. Soaking in sun I’ve never felt before. Looking at the moon and stars from a different angle. Breathing in air I can’t even imagine at this point. I’m scared. I’m happy. I’m sad. I’m excited. Honestly, I’m a little over whelmed even.
I can’t even begin to imagine how different 2019 is going to be. I can’t imagine how different life if going to be living on a new continent. Living in a new country, being thousands of miles from my family, my friends, and MY CAT 😭😭 Meeting so many new people. Creating so many stories. Living out a dream that my imagination would have never truly saw happening.
Here’s to the start of all my dreams finally making their way into reality 🤗❤️
