Good day friends,
I’ve been on a tear lately, yes? The amount of travel I’ve done in the last 6 weeks is more than I ever imagined and I’m beyond grateful for it. Never would have believed we lived in a world where you could sell your possessions buy a one way ticket, start a blog and end up here? I came back to Canada because I had a very grandiose plan involving Little Corn Island, naturally Canada is not on the way to Central America from Florida.
I’ve been stressing and running around like a madman trying to work out legalities and arrange funds. If you’re leaving your home country for extended periods of time I HIGHLY recommend you give power of attorney to your parents(unless they are deadbeats), if not you may be on expensive flights home to do paper work when you’re inspired by thinking big.
Last night I found out some devastating information regarding my egregious plan which has made me decide to walk away. This entire day has been totally shot and I’ve sat here questioning where to go and kicking myself for booking tickets in advance. This is the first time I booked tickets in advance that I can remember and now have other plans.
In parting, everything does happen for a reason. The deal fell through but I’m here with my parents eating my favorite meals and reconnecting with friends. I’m also going to visit my grand parents tomorrow. Had this grandiose plan not been hatched I wouldn’t be spending time with the people who matter most to me on this planet. It’s also made me realize I don’t see them enough and long-term, will be adjusting my travel style.
Time is more precious than money and time well spent is the secret to happiness… (I think!?)
Tomorrow I’m flying to Boston at 7am.
Oh yeah, same same but different situations are happening in your life, right now…
