In 13 days, I will be on a one way flight to Manila.
Everybody asks me, "are you getting excited??" And I'm not quite sure how I feel. Excited is definitely one of them, but I am more present to fear, uncertainty,worry. I am scared. For what, I don't know. It's all just very uncomfortable. I will be traveling alone for an indefinite amount of time. I have no idea what the future holds. I am temporarily homeless. Unlike all my previous vacations, I do not have a home or a job to return to. I have never been without a job or so much as a health insurance. Leaving a security of a home, a community of friends, my beloved yorkie Darwin, a consistent paycheck, and a predictable yet safe future is, well, uncomfortable.

Yet I realize that this is precisely the reason why I am going on this journey...to get out of my comfort zone and expand, grow, and spread my wings beyond what I have known. To challenge myself beyond what I think I'm capable of. To release myself from the monotonous routines and experience being ALIVE.
All the emotions I am feeling are ok and, all part of this adventure, part of my expansion.
I definitely feel that I am about to end a chapter of my life and begin a new one. To me, this trip is more than a vacation. It will be a process of self exploration and self discovery.

3 months ago, I returned a changed person just from spending ONE week in Tulum. I can't even begin to imagine who I will become after this journey. Traveling alone for months across the planet was not something I ever thought I can do. I am unrecognizable already!
