The time has come for us to say good bye.
We're leaving for Ethiopia tonight from Arlanda. I'm a bit nervous ofcourse. I mean, who wouldn't be... The difference from my earlier travels is that I won't be able to go back for a short weekend and it won't be that easy for people to visit me either. Mostly I don't go home that often anyway, but the feeling of having that opportunity makes me feel safe.
Despite the one, tiny, little baby little hiccup of nerves I'm extremely excited! After 10 months of planning we're finally going. We have decided not to plan everything in detail as the beauty of backpacking is that we have the opportunity to live by the day and create our own trip on our terms. I know for sure now that this ain't gonna be just a fun trip in the sun; it'll be the trip that will make me a better person, the trip that I'll never forget and above all the trip of my life.
I'll keep you posted with all the crazy, amazing stories and experiences.
I'll miss you loads!
