There are many things that we are excited about for this trip. We are trying to balance not having any expectations while being dreamers finally living OUR way and naturally getting so excited. We know that it will be hard, we are fully expecting lots of tears, some fears, a decent amount of boredom and our fair share of arguments. But we are also dreaming of all the mountains we get to climb, all the hidden waterfalls we get to swim in, all the many faces we get to meet along the way and we can’t help but get excited. We have thought a lot about what kinds of things we want to accomplish in a more personal growth kind of way – flexibility, healthy diet, promoting our beliefs, etc. The one thing we can never stop smiling about is the thought that we have all the time in the world to do anything we can dream of. Our wondering minds have no boundaries. We can write books, go to school, take up art, learn how to play guitar, anything we want. The saying “the world is your oyster” has never seemed so fitting. It’s a big responsibility, the utter freedom, but one thing we can both agree on is the comfort of having our home with us. No hotel rooms, never having to go home at night but to instead always be home and have that familiarity. To never have to leave your loved ones and your belongings, but rather carry all that’s important with you. There is a possibility that this all may fail, that we may come home after a week wondering what we were thinking. But just imagine, what if this is the best thing we’ve ever done.
