Firstly, I'm terrified. I've never been away for even close to so long. In fact I don't think I have ever been on holiday by myself. I'm pretty sure my mum and my sister are rather nervous for me too. I hope I will be sensible (I think, I think of myself as a sensible person most of the time). But I don't think anyone can know how they will react to situations they have never been close to until they are there. I am also afraid of being terribly homesick. It took less than a week to be really very homesick in China.
Secondly, I am incredibly excited. It feels like I am leaving on a proper adventure, something totally different from what I am used to. I feel lucky that I have the opportunity to go so far, see such fantastic sights. The fear makes it so much more real.
I hope I will write about my experiences well. My dad has advised me that writing down everything is something I will really value in years to come. So bear with me if these entries become a little epic.
Wish me luck!
