Europe | United Kingdom (UK), Great Britain | England | London – sitting at my parents’ home…
quite happy to be opening this diary in the quiet suburb where my parents live. I believe in cycles, and when my journey is over i will surely return to the same spot, with different memories behind my eyelids and different feelings in my heart.
So i intend to travel in 5 weeks and counting to a hotter, poorer, bigger, smaller part of the world, Sri lanka, and India.
My fears are lurking in my dreams as each day brings me closer to the flight: will i be ok?
on my own
new country, new faces, new customs.
i don’t want to get screwed out of all my money, or end up miserable and lonely on some vast beach somewhere, not able to enjoy it. I don’t want to get caught out by global terrorism or harsh politics or nasty people. I don’t want to get ill in the remotest cabin or the most crowded market street.
I want inspiration, new friends, beautiful views. I want the brasing feeling of wind in my lungs, the unbeatable feeling of sun on my skin. I want to make good use of he hammock i was given. I want to travel carefully and respectfully. I want to have fun and wake up every morning raring to go.
as well as i can i’ll get to sri lanka, get to india, and get home. and as well as i can i’ll make sure the wants happen, and i’ll trust that the don’t wants don’t. i intend to win.
