I’ve decided to change my itinerary. Actually, I decided almost three weeks ago, but had a few people to tell first, before letting the world know . . . now the secret’s out.
For anyone that knows how I’ve been talking and dreaming about this trip for the last few years, this so-called revelation will not come as a huge surprise. As organized and obsessive-compulsive as I am in everyday life, I am just as much the opposite when it comes to travelling. The wind is generally my preferred mode of arriving at a destination, if not that, then maybe a last-minute deal, train, or a poster offering a sweet experience or opportunity.
Last week, the flight that I wanted to change mine to be would have cost a measly $320. Today, it is over $2000. *sigh*
I was deterred until I read this: Press of a Button. Basically: make the most of it. You choose your life, and it’s not always easy. But Ron is right, “when you’re stressed and down to your very last drop of sanity, you find ways to dig deep into the depths of your soul–looking for something to hang onto.”
Right now, I’m hanging on to his words. And the opportunity that not having to return to Kuala Lumpur will give me.
Another change to my itinerary: I’m not really sure where I’m going – and I like it.
