After a very emotional goodbye with my parents, sister and girlfriend. I’m sitting in the airport with a chai from Starbucks in a surprisingly nice waiting area with swivel chairs and my own table, plus chargers in the center of the table.
Boarding starts in half an hour. It hasn’t yet hit me that I will be gone from home for over six months.
First stop: Amaravati Buddhist Monastery. I will be staying there for 3 weeks. Off the grid. Should get my some good grounding in calm and mindfulness before the bulk of my trip.
My next blog post probably won’t be until I’m back in London. See you soon!
