On My Mind: Anticipation

It finally reached 70° today. One sunny day and all the daydreaming I’ve been doing about winter escapes to the sunshine have suddenly lessened. Add to that the fact that I’m headed off on a new adventure soon and I’m practically skipping through the streets.

In just a couple of weeks I’m off on a trip that I’ve planned for and booked farther in advance than maybe any trip I’ve taken at all. The initial excitement of clicking the submit button quickly faded because it seemed so far in the future and almost like a dream of an idea.

There’s a certain distance from when you book a trip to when you actually leave when you reach peak anticipation and I think I’ve finally reached it. I just want to pack and be off the plane wandering.

I’m headed back to Asia for the first time in three years! Vietnam specifically. My time there before was such an amazing experience and it’s become a little bit of a fantasy in my head. I’ll be doing a little bit different of a trip then before, not visiting the big cities of Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh but instead landing in Da Nang, wandering up the coast before heading to the Son Doong Cave for four nights of camping inside the world’s largest cave.

Counting the days…
