Time to put all this South American planning to use! Or more realistically days of packing and unpacking a tiny backpack.
It’s been some time since I have really paid attention to this blog. Came to the conclusion I only address it when I’m traveling, and it’s been some time since my last major journey.
Left that black hole we call NYC sometime in February. Felt so good to wave goodbye to the statue on my bus ride out. Funny thing about the city, it really does have a way of trying to keep you there…once I left I received a job offer (somewhere I interviewed almost 6 months prior) and a couple side projects. I declined the desk job and took the remote work, because why not. The weeks leading up to the trip are mainly to focus on my side pet, but extra income wouldn’t hurt.
So here I am almost two months later still in Columbus, Ohio. It has been such a beautiful transition on my way to Denver, Colorado. Got to squeeze a lot of family time in Texas as well. Finally have the green light so I think it is time to go!
This year has been extremely pivotal for me in many aspects; career, religion, relationships. Something special about this trip that I would like to point out…is that for once someone has not only expressed BUT FOLLOWED through with traveling with me. All these years going solo have built up to this and I am grateful for it 🙂
Going to miss these sunsets. Then again I have high expectations for Denver…get it? My body seems to sense change is coming again and I find it comical that it still hasn’t given in. Few more days to go and I will be like a fish in water!
Side note: my brother told me about this great GPS device called SPOT – going to put it to the test during this trip.
