I don’t know why you say goodbye I say hallo

SURPRISE! We’re home. After having literally circled the globe we are now back where we started – and yet so far from it.

Coming home is always sad and neither of us were ready for it. But it was time – until next time – and – even though I am not one for doing things because they make sense – it made sense. The timing was right – I am starting university in a couple of weeks and our brains are craving digestion time and new knowledge.

As cliché as it may be I see this as an investment in my future travels. A university degree opens many doors abroad (if you want to teach and is not a native English speaker it is a requirement) and am planing to minor in Japanese so I can go back to that country which I fell so hopelessly in love with.

If there is anything I have learnt from this trip it is that adventure can happen anywhere – it is all a matter of attitude. So I will do my best to try and see this not as the ending but merely a new chapter in a journey that has only just begun.
