65 Hours and Counting

I know that technically I shouldn't be posting yet because I haven't left yet but its so close! I realised that I am actually kind of scared to be galivanting off to Europe with no more than a backpack, some money and a good friend. I guess that should be enough to keep me pretty secure feeling but all the things that make my life comfortable and familiar remain here. Besides Theresa I guess. I think when I leave on monday I will pretend that I am just going to Disney World and back, I'll just be gone a week! Then when I get on the plane to come home, I will fall asleep and forget about everything and hours and hours later when I get off the plane yawning, stretching and looking around for my friends and family to pick me up, I will realize that everyone is speaking jibberish and the signs are just unfamiliar foreign symbols and some guy with dark hair and a big smile will walk up to me and say "Hey Dolphin!" and I'll realize I'm in Greece! All I have to do is survive one week in Athens until Theresa comes and we can start our Jaunt accross Europe.

  1. I'm glad to hear that you have just a little fear! Fear keeps us safe. You have always been an adventurer and a risk taker but since you were very small I never saw you climb a tree you couldn't climb down from. I'm sure you were a little scared those times too.

    Have fun, I will miss you but i am am so proud of you and so excited for you. C-Mom
