Tonight is my last night at home before we embark on our 3 month backpacking journey through Europe! It doesn’t seem real that this will be my last sleep in the comfort of my own bed, or that I won’t see my boyfriend, friends and family for the next quarter of the year.. (it sounds even longer when you put it like that) It’s a scary feeling to be packing my life away into a 75L backpack and saying adios to the place I’ve never left for more than a few weeks at a time! At this point I’m all nerves and it really hasn’t sunk in that I won’t be in this place again for a long time. But change is good, and I know that this experience will be unforgettable and possibly one of the best adventures of my whole life. Eeeeeepp!! Who knows what’s to come?! Only time will tell, and I’m so excited to share this journey with anyone who stumbles onto this blog. I can’t believe this is all happening TOMORROW. We’ve only been talking about doing this trip since forever. It’s surreal that tomorrow is the day.
Well, goodnight world! I will update as soon as I can, hopefully with exciting news about our first days in Europe! First stop: Lisbon. (after a day layover in London which we plan to explore briefly) Until next time!
