Today I take the next big step in my life. I will travel to a place that I’ve never been to, a place where none of my family or relatives live, and I will travel alone. I am off to the first of many new adventures of my life, exploring new places, soaking in local culture, and most of all, indulging in the local food fare.
I’ve been wanting to do this for the longest time. I’ve travelled before to other countries, but not yet on a very personal adventure like this. There were always relatives to visit, an affair to attend, or an arranged tour with everyone else. Now, I am set to make my own adventure.
I’m also lucky to have a local friend in the country I’m visiting. He’s helping me a lot in planning my adventures for this trip. He’s also very nice to offer to take me around for part of my visit. It would be amazing to see a place from the eyes of someone from the inside.
I’m super excited now, for this trip and for the many trips I have yet to take in the future. Hope everything goes well. I’ll post details of my adventure in the next few days, so stay tuned for that!
