The blocks have been removed from under the tires of the plane and in a flash we are gone. While most of you were sleeping, Autumn and I began our journey this morning. I’m not sure what exactly it is about travel that makes me feel so energized, but a 3am wake-up call was all I needed to be ready to take on a day of traveling. While I was able to sleep soundly last night, my wife was not so fortunate. It’s a good thing she can curl up and sleep just about anywhere. 🙂
In an effort at full disclosure I will tell you that both Autumn and I agree that this feels almost surreal. We are physically on a plane flying to the tropical island of Trinidad and yet both of us have yet to mentally detach ourselves from our previous day-to-day. My strong prediction is that when we land and see the faces of our friends Zahra and Marvin, things will start to sink in. Nothing like old friends in a new location to snap you into the present moment.
Until we are able to step foot off the plane in Trinidad, and while we zoom across the Caribbean at 530mph, we going to watch some shows we downloaded from Amazon Prime and work on letting the reality of our new life start to sink it.
