This would drive our menfolk nuts, not to have a plan in place for when we go, not to know exactly what we are doing every day or how we will be doing it. Well, we are staying in an apartment my friend has rented for two weeks and have transportation arranged. The appointments for her medical procedures are in place. That much is set. But the guys get antsy and impatient at not having plans made and tend to make vacation trips unpleasant after a couple of days, so we girls are looking forward to just doing what comes our way and exploring a different culture. We will look around and see what comes to our attention and do what attracts us at that moment. The contacts have told us how friendly and helpful the people are so I have no worries at all about the trip. Well, truthfully I might be white knuckling it over the ocean for a bit since I have never flown overseas, but there’s a first for everything, and I know we’ll be fine. (We got airplane seats next to each other though just so we can hold hands for support. 😛 )
Taking things one step at a time. Stepping out of my comfort zone. Exploration without worries. That’s freedom in the new energy. The old me never would have done this or my trip to the West coast alone. New me is excited for these opportunities! And this one lets me do it with a companion, yay!! It was what I asked for on my list of things I wanted to do last year. Dreams are coming true.
