I honestly thought I would be gone months ago. Just jump on a plane and go – that was the whole idea.
Found out I needed to stick around for a while. Decompress. Enjoy another Chicago summer. Re-learn to appreciate time with friends and family.
I stuck around a bit too long though. Started getting nervous. Had to readjust my trip, learn about Schengen, and remember why I wanted to do a RTW trip in the first place. To find out what’s next.
