Today is my last day in Vietnam. This trip has been an utter whirlwind, and as with my Nepal trip, was exactly what I needed when I needed it. I know it has impacted me and left me with a lot of things to think about.
I’m beginning to go through the process of gearing up for the trek home – packing, getting those last few gifts for people back home, planning my outfit for the flight(s), etc – and going through a number of emotions as I look ahead from here.
Over the next few weeks and months, I will be processing everything that I experienced on this journey along with the wide variety of self-reflection I did while on the road. Don’t expect me to give a huge, in-depth recap of everything that happened over the last 23 days right away; it is going to take me some time to sort through everything, both physically (lots of laundry in my future) and emotionally. I have taken over 5,000 photos so it will take me some time to sort through all of those, but I promise there are some awesome shots that I captured, and can’t wait to share. I will be doing more updates to show where we visited and give some basic recaps when I get home, but right now I want to enjoy my last few hours in Vietnam, do a bit more shopping, and spend time with my new friends.
Much love and positivity to you all. I can’t wait to share this journey with you all. For now, I ask for some patience and time to process.
