I sit here on a cliff side bungalow on my last night before the long two day journey home begins. Monkeys can be heard in the trees, little spurts of Thai float up from the trees, limestone cliffs are lit in the distance. It would be impossible not to say I will miss all these little things I've grown accustom to.
However, I am happy to be heading back home.
Looking back on my blog, it is cool to see how I have grown as a person as well as my transition into the backpacking lifestyle. Arriving in some of the world's most renowned Asian cities with no idea of the language or where to stay that evening…the idea sounded overwhelming a few months ago…now it is where I find adventure.
The stories from this trip will certainly populate my conversations for the rest of my life. To “actually go” and find out what the other side of the world could offer is a fact I am proud of as well. I also know that I will be back and am already in talks about where my girlfriend and I will be backpacking to next year…so the journey will continue.
I will have one more post when I get home with the statistics of the trip as well as a list of cities I have visited. If you have any questions about where I have been, what I have done, or traveling on this side of the world in general…feel free to shoot me and email or comment.
For now, enjoy the last few photos from the other side of the world and I will write one last time from home!
