The day of departing for my trip has come round quickly. As I boarded the plane I felt waves of excitement and fear. Can I do this on my own? Have I made the right decisions? Will being away for five months be hard?
Yes. Yes. And Yes.
This experience is going to test me, there will inevitably be hard times, moments of indecisions and times where everything is out of my control. Those are moments that will only make me stronger.
There’s a lot more to look forward to though. Laughing with friends old and new. Finding hidden paradise beaches. Getting myself from one end of the country to another. Working with orangutans and getting up close to elephants. Trying hidden gem street foods. Dancing all night. Having an adventure.
I’ve wanted this trip for so long and it’s finally here so I’m going to make the most of it! This will be 143 days of joy so keep reading to hear about each and every one of them.
