I’m always nervous before travel, I mean everything could go wrong.
Also, before a trip I usually come down with a little bit of a blah feeling, like packing and heading to the airport is a bother and I would rather sleep. At the same time I am excited to travel again, it’s hard to explain. I know once this trip gets going I’ll be excited as a kid in a candy store but currently, sitting in YVR, it’s more like a kid in a carpet store.
I’m also a bit hungover, yesterday was a pretty perfect last day before a trip, Kurtis, Nahanni, Colleen, Jon, Kyle, Michelle, Rae and Graham have all sent me on my way feeling gratitude, feeling connected to those I care about (Chosen Family!) and feeling eager to see new places/people/things.
