For so long it was just a dream. I knew when I started my degree that I’d be spending the third year in another country, but I never could have imagined it would be Colombia. That was too much to hope.
Yet I am. I’ve spent the morning packing up my apartment in order to move home this weekend. I still have a lot of packing to do, but I’ve made progress at least! From then on, it will be buying insurance, exchanging money and planning the trip to the airport.
30 days. 30 days until I fly alone to another country on the other side of the world. 30 days until I live the dream. I still can’t quite believe it is happening. I’m excited and nervous all at once. There are so many questions going through my head that I don’t yet have the answers to.
So many people thought I couldn’t do this I started to believe it myself. I am proving them wrong, I am proving myself wrong. And it feels amazing.
