Reality Check

“The only reason for time is so that everything doesn't happen at once.” –Albert Einstein

Time. Some days it passes quickly, others it seems to take forever for each minute to pass. Well, this was one of those moments where time all of a sudden caught up to me. Lying awake, I finally counted the days until I leave on this crazy mad adventure. I’d been putting off counting since the one-month milestone so the total gave me a long awaited reality check. 15 days. Just over two weeks and I will be across the pond in the home of The Beatles, fish n’ chips, and of course the right-side steering wheel. It will be totally new and different, but that’s exactly what I’m after.

The to-do list is getting shorter, and now I’m faced with the reality of this trip that has been so long in the making. I’ll be on my own for the first time in my life, in a foreign country, no limitations, restrictions or schedules. Total freedom. Everything I’ve been so excited about is suddenly terrifying. Regardless of any doubts or inhibitions I may have now, my plane ticket says I’m going, so in 15 days home will fade away out the window of a 747, on my way to London.

So here’s to the adventure and every new experience to come. Welcome to my blog and I hope you’ll enjoy reading about my experiences as much as I will sharing them.

‘Till next time.
