I can’t believe the moment is finally here.All my stuff is sold, my apartment keys have been handed in so i’m officially homeless and i’m just 2 hrs away from beginning a 6-8 month backpacking adventure through Latin America.
The last week has gone so ridiculously quick. I’ve met up with so many friends and had going away drinks. Plus I have eaten at least 3 poutine’s in the past 24 hrs haha.
It’s really hard to explain how I feel at the moment everything just feels really surreal. I’m extremely excited for all the adventures I am going to have and all of the amazing people I am going to meet. But at the same time I keep just thinking
This is insane, Am I really doing this?
I’m actually doing this. I would never have ever though id be doing something like this in my entire life. In a few hours I leave Montreal the place I have called home for the last 2 and a bit years with nothing more than my backpack,
But you know what as terrifying as it can feel at the same time it’s the most exciting and liberating feeling i’ve ever felt in my entire life. Soon as I board that plane to Cancun the future is what I make it. I have the first 4 days of my trip planned but besides that it’s all up to me to decide what I want to do, where I want to go.
I finally feel like for the first time I’m fully in control of my life!
- I’m not doing this because someone else thinks I should do it
- I’m not doing this because I think it’s what I’m expected to do
- I’m not doing this because It’s the path of least resistance
With all the major life changing events that have happened in the past four months even just getting to this point where I have sold everything in my apartment and i’m completely free is huge achievement for me.
This mark’s the start of a new and exciting chapter in my life. Life is what you make of it and I plan to make it a good one.
I want to take a quick moment to thank all of my friends,family and fellow readers for the enormous amount of support and encouragement I have received. All of your advice, feedback and encouraging words has really helped keep me going and all my Montreal friend’s i’m going to miss you all like crazy 🙁
I look forward to sharing this journey with all of you, and with that I am off this is the last pre-trip post I will be making… As by tomorrow afternoon I will be my first destination. Playa Del Carmen, Mexico
Love you all and see you on the other side 😀
