Today begins the start of many firsts for me. It’s hard to believe that today is finally here, but it’s been just a few shorts months since I have known that I was leaving the US to move to St. Lucia in the Caribbean. And with this move comes much excitement, anxiousness, joy, fear, sadness, adventure and new chapter of life that I never saw coming.
I hope to use this blog to post some of these adventures on life in a different country where I don’t know the people, the culture and what it means to be so far away from my friends and family. Having never lived more than 100 miles from home, this is a first for me. Leaving behind a city like Austin that I have called home since 1997 scares and excites me in ways I cannot even begin to imagine.
My first flight leaves today at 4:00 pm and I land in St. Lucia on Thursday at 3:00 pm.
It really hasn’t hit me yet that all of this happening, but lets see how it all goes down once I get in line at TSA and see where all my emotions go. More to come….
