Leaving Again

I'm going to China in two weeks.

I'm trying to let that sink in.

I feel like I just got here.  I'm finally adjusted to being in this environment.  I've barely settled into this routine.  To being back in the time zone as my friends and family.

A part of me wants to ignore the inevitable, wants to pretend in two weeks I won't throw all my stuff back into a duffel bag and take a taxi at some ungodly hour to get on a thirteen (or more) hour flight.

At this point, I'm practically commuting back and forth to Asia.

I know I should feel excited, but that emotion is a bit slow coming.  I think I'm wishing for a little more of the mundane banalities that everyone else seems to complain about.

But les's be honest, being stuck in the same place for very long was never my style.


  1. I'm so jealous of all of your travels. have the life I tell ya. Wow.

  2. ...remember all the sites, the smells, the experience of visiting faraway lands. Someday it'll make for a killer storyline ;)

    Glad I stopped by!


  3. Sounds exciting to me! I never get to go anywhere near as interesting. But I can imagine it must be tiring too.

  4. I can relate to what you're feeling - It's how I was between Britain and Australia for a while. It was all so demanding at the time - and yet from a distance of several years I realise - I enjoyed it!

    Makes no sense does it lol?


  5. Whoa! You quite the traveler. I can understand being excited but I bet it can be jarring sometimes.
