Greetings to my wonderful readers! I have been neglecting my blog for an unforgivable amount of time as I chased down one of my most elusive dreams. However, it has heartened me to see that even when I was MIA, there were a few faithful friends who dropped by to like and comment on my posts. Thank you all for keeping me in your thoughts.
I am now back on my home turf and the euphoria of my holiday has yet to dissipate. For those of you who may not have read my last post, I just spent 8 blissful days touring Europe. The first leg was a solo trip for 5 days and the second leg was a radically different trip with my gal pals. I have now checked off two items from my bucket list – A solo international trip and a girls only international trip. Both of these have been long-term dreams and have come close to fruition many times but for some reason or the other never seemed to work out… until now.
Ever since I got back from my vacation, people have been asking me how it went. And in all honesty, I simply don’t have the words to express how I feel. I am immensely grateful to have had this opportunity. It still seems surreal somehow. I am in a state of wonder that this ACTUALLY happened. How is it that I have been fortunate enough to have had this happen to ME?
Already there is a sense of nostalgia in the knowledge that such a trip will, in all probability, never happen again. It took a monumental amount of dreaming and planning to make this a reality and every cell of my being sings with gratitude that this was made possible. I can confidently say that the bar has been set so high with this trip that repeating this feat will be a challenge!
I am still trying to collect my thoughts and formulate coherent sentences that can convey to another human being the true extent of my feelings about this short jaunt. But until I can wrap my mind around those wispy sentences that are just beyond my reach, I will leave you with a promise that I will be back soon with more details…
