Over the last few days, I have visited the airport three times to say goodbye to friends and family all embarking on separate travels off to America and Europe. With my travels coming soon too I realised how small this world is a few hours and many borders may separate us but with the ever evolving technology at our finger tips it doesn’t feel like we that far apart at all.
I have always been fascinated by travel and meeting new people, experiencing different cultures and learning new things. The journey that lead me to this point in my life where I sit looking at my room I have had most of my life and waiting on boxes to start packing and throwing things out actually brings a sadness to my heart.
Life as I know it is going to drastically change and I still don’t think it has really sunk in but I am so ready for this next season in my life and brave is what I need to be to endure the next few months as China becomes my new home.
The things I will miss the most is the comforts of the familiarity, being able to jump in my car and know where I am going is going to be a thing of the past. Missing out on special once off moments will be sad. The fact that I won’t be here to cheer Courteney on as she competes in her dance competitions not seeing her battle through her final year of school not being here for her Matric balls and family weddings I will miss those moments the most.
It’s strange to think this is my last two weeks in Cape Town for a while, and the journey that lies ahead is one scary, but exciting journey that has taught me to work hard have patience and see things through. The real test is yet to come, but that’s an entirely new post for another day.
Peace love and Happiness
