Packing is done, goodbyes have been said, time is up, anything not already done isn’t getting done….
Just 8 hours until I have a fight with the alarm clock for the last time.
And how do I feel?
I guess I should be feeling happy, sad, nervous, excited or one of the many other emotions one feels on the eve of a new page in life or before a big adventure.
But the truth of it is I’m just tired and worn out. Too many weeks of too much stress getting organised, working and waking up at 4am thinking about all the nonsense that still needs doing.
But thats all over now, a long day tomorrow watching films, and eating dodgy airline food. When I wake up on Friday morning it will be summer again and I’ll be in Cape Town.
A new adventure, a new life, I’ll be charged up and ready to go in no time, soon I’ll once again be on top of the world, full of energy and ready for action:)
Family, friends, colleagues, social media followers and readers:
Thanks all for your support and patience the last 18 months, and thanks for all the gifts and donations in recent weeks especially my brother for proving that he really is nuts by paying for my ticket to Cape Town.
Please pop in to see how I’m getting along on my adventure from time to time. I plan to do a blog update a couple of times a month, so spread the word:).
My closing words I’ll leave to Mr Mark Twain:
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
