As my departure draws nearer (58 days to be exact), I am trying to tie up all loose ends. I’m reducing my belongings, saying my goodbyes, and confirming travel plans.
So far the plan is going Chicago > Instanbul > Mumbai > Trivandrum, then staying in an AirBNB accommodation in Trivandrum before setting off the next morning to Kochi. A few hours journey via car to an undisclosed location, then a few days through AirBNB before we start our job placement.
Both flights are confirmed. Both houses are confirmed. Our job start date has been confirmed.
Thinking about that much travel and change in a single week gives me a tiny bit of anxiety, but it’s not too bad if you think about it. I’m excited to start this journey. I don’t know if I’ll succeed or make a mess of my life, but I do know that this is going to be a once in a lifetime experience and I can’t wait for it to begin.
