Why am I writing a blog? Well, I woke up last year and decided that I wanted to sell everything I own and try out the lifestyle of an expat…
Next thing you know a year has gone by and I’m on a plane. No turning back, doing my best to not allow my emotions to get the best of me. I’ve said goodbye to the place that’s been my home for the past 7 years,my friends, and only part of my family. Realizing that layover time is not nearly enough to tie up all the loose ends I foolishly left for the last-minute (of course).
The itinerary is Denver > Kansas City > Ft. Lauderdale > Miami > Buenos Aires!!!!!!!
I have to admit I am a little nervous. I have lived out of the country before but this is my first time “living” in another country. By that I mean – having a job, an apartment, day-to-day living. This is something that I’ve always wanted to do but didn’t think was possible. In the span of 1 year I went from living in a fully furnished – “complete”, if you will, 1 bedroom apartment > to a studio apartment > to renting a bedroom > to living out of 2 suitcases (well a backpacking backpack and a duffel bag).
I have a few goals to accomplish while I am here… I will elaborate later when I have more time.
I am embarking on the biggest adventure I’ve ever been on, one I can’t believe became a reality in such a short amount of time. How grateful and Lucky am I?!?!?!?
I have landed! There were a few misunderstandings, but that aside it was a rather seamless journey.
I arrived to amazingly warm weather, blue skies and city noises. My roommate, at first impression is very kind, patient with my horrible spanish, and eager to help :). The power is out on our block, Ramiro says this happens often (welcome to B.A.).
I have to admit although I am incredibly excited, I can’t help but think:
“WHAT HAVE I GOTTEN MYSELF INTO!?!?
