It’s only the beginning:
This all started in January. I was thinking about what my priorities where and what I wanted to do with this new found freedom I’ve gained. I wanted to move to Portland and start fresh.But I’ve always had this longing in me (not to be confused with my nonsensical love for ice-cream) to see the world and all that comes with it.
I needed a change, i needed a fresh start. Portland wasn’t enough.
I wanted to go to Europe, but the problem was finding a friend that had the time/money to go with me. After finding that I had no option to travel with a friend, I was very annoyed at the idea of giving up my trip just because of these circumstances.
Then I made the decision. I, Jessica, and American female, am going to Europe solo.
Yes for the 15th time, i’ve seen Taken, and yes.. I have seen Hostel.
I don’t believe that people should stop living their life because of misconceptions and an overwhelming fear of the unknown.
Life is full of surprises.
They have been saying this since, well forever, and you know why? It’s true to every country, and every state. No matter where you are things might not go your way, but you have to learn to expect that and just run with it!
So here I am, getting ready for the bravest thing I’ve ever done. In 33 days my best friend will drive me to the Spokane airport, and I will board my very long journey (2o hours) to Santorini, Greece. From there I will spend a total of 33 days in Greece, Italy, France, and Ireland.
And so the final countdown continues. 33 days and counting every minute..
