the embarkation

today is the last day i'll be here for two and a half months. in six hours i embark on a trip of a lifetime... my lifetime at least. i've been waiting for nearly twenty years to go back to spain, and now i've finally had the chance. i don't know if i'll be able to keep this blog updated (as if anyone reading the history of this blog would think i could), but i'll see what i can do.

i'll be taking a lot of photos and trying to keep copious notes about my adventures. in the meantime, i also hope to be working here and there to survive. when i return, i will work on posting photos and stories of my journey.

now i'm off to double-check my bags one last time, fill the water bottles, double-check my maps and documents, and get a couple short hours of sleep before it's time for me to board a plane. come to think of it, it's been over ten years since i've even been on a plane! all my travels in the past ten years have been by bus or by car, so this is a great divergence from my normal mode of transport. i can't begin to say how excited i am, and i know it doesn't come across quite the same here--you'll just have to take my word for it.

wish me luck!

To fear love is to fear life, and those who fear life are already three parts dead.
