Ready Set Go

I am almost out the door and my head is spinning faster than I can keep up with. I'll be on a plane to Spain in less than 2 days, I've crossed pretty much everything off The List, and I've finished up all my lingering commitments in New York. Nothing left to do now but completely freak out for the next 46 hours and race around like a madman in an erratic last-minute frenzy of celebration, elation, and panic. This is really happening, and it's happening, like, now.

I've been thinking a lot about Thailand lately and trying to picture myself there again, peacefully sitting on a beach contemplating the sunset and where on the map I'll be next. All my travel thus far has inspired me to take this trip, but it was really being in Thailand at the beginning of this year that made me realize THIS was going to be the next big thing I did. It won't be long now 'til I am back on a beach on another side of the globe throwing mental darts at the map and watching hour-long sunsets rage across the sky. It's all so surreal, fabulous, and unbelievable all at the same time...
