Sitting here at the crown Casino in Melbourne, Australia. Just reflecting on my life, thinking how insane it is how far away I am from anyone related to me or friends. (except the one that I know here.) It puts a weird feeling in my stomach. When I have kids, I feel like it would be really hard for me to let them go off alone to a country on the other side of the world! Which leaves me with the question, do my parents really care about me? JUST KIDDING Mom and Dad.
I am actually surprised at how well I can take care of myself. It's pretty impressive. Like, just now I made a pillow out of my purse. It's so... "homeless chic." (?)
After this travel spree, though,I want to really ignite my talents. Sometimes I feel like I do so much traveling that I never really get the time to focus on what it is that I want to do with the rest of my life.I have been all over South America, Europe, the Caribbean, Australia, and a bunch of random places in the U S of A.
Just had a free wine tasting while waiting in line for my flight to Sydney. How convenient! I practically had a glass while talking to the lady serving! (She's oblivious to the refills.) Natasha was her name. Probably in her late 50's but in great shape because she was a ballet dancer and now teacher. She traveled to New York for a year to do ballet, and LA for a small bit as well. She was very helpful with my wine tasting and gave me several small glasses she almost ran to the bottle shop to get me the one I liked but I told her no worries. (my new Australian lingo.) It was a divine wine though, very smooth and red!
I feel nice, and want another!
Off to Sydney, to have my first Hostel experience! Wish me luck!
