I had plans, I honestly did, to have posts queued up while I was gone, but I realize now that this is not going to happen. I’m leaving the country to a remote region in Southeast Asia. It’s always been a dream of mine, to travel alone. Somewhere difficult. I’ve always traveled with friends previously, and that’s a crutch. This solo trek is something that just needs to be done.
One of the most difficult parts has been informing people. I’m using a smaller travel agency, and things might still go south. Until I’m physically trekking on foreign soil, I probably won’t believe the whole thing is real. So usually, I prefer to do something, and talk about it afterwards. Just checked the weather report for the region, and there’s nothing but thunder storms where I’m headed. I’m writing this post partly as an impulse, and hoping for the best.
What have you done recently outside of your comfort zone?
I’ll be back in two weeks.
