I used to think the worst thing in life was to end up all alone, it’s not. The worst thing in life is to end up with people who make you feel all alone

Right now, I’m sitting in Heathrow at my gate about to board my flight to Delhi. Once I get to Delhi, I’ll be meeting up with some other people before we make out way to Hyderabad. Classes start in a couple of days. Leaving Dylan was hard and I haven’t slept much, but I’m hoping those things won’t affect the first few days of my journey. I probably won’t be posting as much for a while, but I promise that while the quantity of my posts will go down, the quality will definitely go up! I can’t wait to share amazing photos of my new home and I hope that all of you will be inspired to go out on a limb, drop everything, and travel somewhere you’ve always wanted to go. If that sounds like something you’ve always wanted to do, the best recommendation I can give you is to read Rolf Pott’s travel book titled- Vagabonding: An Uncommon Guide to the Art of Long Term World Travel. It changed everything for me and gave me the extra push that I needed to make this amazing journey.
