If you know me you know I’m passionate about travel. There’s nothing more romantic and fantastic than exploring an unfamiliar culture. It’s what makes my eyes sparkle and my heart sing; it fills me with unmatched energy and wonder. If I had my choice I’d be on a plane exploring uncharted corners of the world almost every day.
That’s why when my roommate and I made a joke in October about going to Europe for New Years I was only half kidding. I’d been yearning to be back in London since I left three years ago, and a friend had been coaxing me to visit her in Spain for about as long. Finally, the always elusive combination of travel necessities was at hand: I had time off and a little money saved. I needed to make it happen.
Before I made my decision I made that phone call to my dad. He made a valid point: Go. The longer you wait the harder it’s going to be to make it happen.
So we bought our plane tickets. And in a few short hours I’ll be boarding that plane to Europe. I’m beside myself with excitement! Five days in London, two days in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany, and four days in Malaga, Spain.
I’m going on an adventure!!!
