Away I Go

It's taken me a while to get here; an early morning, two island ferries, one five hour bus ride, and an overpriced taxi to the airport to be exact.

I checked in for my flight only to be told that my flight was delayed six hours; being the flight attendant I am, I don't ask questions I just accept what it is. I'm used to it. All five flights from AirAsia that I've been on since I've been in Southeast Asia have all been delayed though, so let me just throw that out there --I guess it's to be expected by now.

I'm going to sum this up as my last post of the Philippines chronicles because I'll be back in the United States tomorrow. So many thoughts and emotions are running through my mind, more than I can explain online but I'm beyond thankful I've learned to journal so everything personal is written in there. With that said, I'm beyond blessed to have been able to experience this vacation. It was unexpected. I wasn't supposed to be here, but I'm glad I am. I've met strangers who became friends. Put myself in uncomfortable situations. Challenged myself. Accepted myself in the rawest form possible. Relearned to enjoy my solitude in moments I felt alone. Endured more emotions than I’ve felt in a long time. Some days were so great I didn't want it to end. I've seen some of the most beautiful sunrises and sunsets of my life so far. 

I'm excited to spend the remainder of this month back home in California. There's no better place to recover than in a place I'm most comfortable in. 

Cheers to life, these adventures, and the many more to come.
