A little goodbye note I take off on my trip around the world. I'm not at all good at saying goodbye and this time I kind of avoided it until last minute and by then it was all so rushed that I didn't even really get to say goodbye properly. So, to all of my friends and family at home, this is for you.
Thank you for your love and support, your well wishes and bon voyages, your reality checks and honest advice. I could not have taken this step in my life had it not been for the countless cups of coffee, bottles of wine, pints of beer and hours of conversation we've shared over the last few months. You were the most compelling reason to stay and will likely be the reason I return.
As bad as I am at saying goodbye, I am likely even worse at staying in touch, but I promise that doesn't mean I don't miss you terribly. I love that the internet will make us feel a little less far away, for that I am thankful. I also hope this blog can give you (and me) a better idea of what my trip is all about as I document inspirations, projects and stories from my journey.
Again, thank you for everything. And, goodbye for now.
