Start spreading the news: I’m leaving today…
As I sit here in terminal 7 at JFK international airport, awaiting my delayed flight home, I am missing one thing more than anything else.
It seems only right that you guys should read this, as it is a direct result of my trip…
One of the first people to get in touch with me when I set this blog up was a girl from Washington. We chatted back and forth on our messages, made really good friends over the first couple of months. When it came to booking my flights she had done enough persuading that the west coast was best, for me to change my starting point from SF to Seattle. We skyped often, but then again I did with many friends I had made during my planning process. The difference with this story in particular, Is that it was different with her. A long story short, A few weeks ago I asked her to be my girlfriend, I told her how much she meant to me, how it was indeed crazy to feel this way but I did and I wanted to make things work. She told me the same things, followed by a yes.
So now I am leaving not only my roadtrip, my holiday of a lifetime but also my girlfriend :( I have never done a long distance thing before but it is potentially only 6 weeks until we see each other in person again. Her name is Faith, and in my eyes she is perfect. I don’t really care what skeptics think, I hope it works, because, well, actually, I’m in love.
My last blog from the states, but by no means my last about my trip. Thank you all for following, supporting and encouraging. You are all amazing!!
