literally ten minutes before i left for the airport to fly to guatemala, i bought a plane ticket to ireland.
-i am delightfully travelworn having just returned from 12 incredible days in one of the few places on earth i eagerly want to return to.
-yet, i am preparing to flee the country again in 5 days, to go home to the british isles.
-i am really stressed out financially.
-i am sooooooo (yes, that many os) excited for this forthcoming solo traveling adventure.
-my resolve to become a real adult (after this one more slightly irresponsible choice?) is stronger than ever.
-i’m glad to embrace this un-attached time of life and the part of me that is just a free spirit.
-i am realizing in this in-between globetrotting time how seriously, seriously (seriously!) perfect summer in northern utah is.
yesterday i went down to mona lake with keri and dani and everything was golden. the mountains and sky reflected in the lake and we ate watermelon and homemade mango salsa. the landscape felt like what i swear pockets of heaven will look like. i did side-flop twice swinging/falling off a tree, but there is nothing more good human feeling than combined pain and laughter, stirred up. the summer night was perfect. we drove home with music and the sunset.
there are so many beautiful places in the world (and i want to see them all), but it’s really really true what they say: there’s no place like home. i love summer days in utah.
