I’m out of money.
I planned the best I could for what I thought would be enough for me to be here for the whole summer, but I planned incorrectly. So I am coming home on the 15th of July.
It’s quite early, isn’t it?
I keep thinking I should be really angry about this.
But I looked at my kite just a little bit ago and saw all the wonderful places I have gone—all over Germany, through the city of Salzburg, Prague, the Cliffs of Moher in Ireland, Buckingham Palace in London, all around France—and what can I say? I’ve had an experience that many only ever dream of.
I have ZERO reason to be angry.
And I still have a ten days left. I thought to myself, “What the heck can I do in ten days?!” but then realized that sometimes that’s an entire European trip for some. So I still have a lot to do. My plan is to skip Spain (which is sad, because I can sort of speak the language and I desperately wanted to see the Running of the Bulls), and see what I can do in Italy. As of now, I’m flying to Milan on Tuesday the 7th, and then go to Cinque Terre (which is my #1 destination), spend a few days there, head back to Milan for a early-morning flight to Paris, stay in a hostel (AND CELEBRATE BASTILLE DAYS, WHICH IS THE 14th!!), and come home on the 15th.
Doesn’t that sound great?
So my trip has been cut about a month and a half short, but I have still accomplished so much (which I will be talking about more in later posts), including traveling in Europe by myself with Anxiety and Depression, and I still have a very cool 10-day journey to come!
So keep reading. :)
And keep praying, because these next ten days are going to be packed with stuff, and I ask that you ask God to be tangibly with me and allow me to walk in His Spirit. Also, pray that my anxiety may be under control and that I am calm and confident while finding God in these next ten days. I currently (as of 2:15pm in Nîmes, France) feeling still quite anxious about this whole thing. Pray for my comfort. Pray for my confidence. Pray that I arrive safely in Minneapolis on July 15th.
And keep reading, because I have more to say. :)
I love you all.
