There are very few things worse in this world for me than the end of a journey. But all good things....
It was an early morning in Copenhagen, but Kevin and I easily made our way back to the train station for the quick ride to the airport. The check in was a bit of a gong show and KLM messed up my ticket once again. But I eventually got my ticket. And then it was time to say goodbye to Kevin. So I walked him back to the train and we had our 'see you laters'. I seriously hate these! And this final one was a tough one, but moving on before I get veklempt...
I made my way through security and onto the first plane to Amsterdam. And then I had a very short connection time to get from one end of the crowded airport, through passport control and to the other side. I was sweaty, but I made it about five minutes before the gate closed. And when I finally boarded, KLM had relegated me to the very last seat at the back, but I had paid for a 'comfort' seat further up. The lovely cabin crew found me a seat close to what I had booked. Otherwise, it was a fairly uneventful ride home. Although the view of Greenland and the icebergs out the window was phenomenal. One last cab home and I was officially done.
I keep saying it, but I am one unbelievably lucky girl. Obviously for the places I have been and the things I have done, but even more so for the people I have in my life. The distance makes it sad, but if I've learned anything in this trip, it's that true friends are always there, no matter how far away. My heart is full of so much happiness and I'm trying to focus on that and not the inevitable return to solitude and routine. To all those that were part of this experience... thank you! It wouldn't have been the same without you all!!
