As I prepare to embark on a journey from America to Portugal and Spain, I figured I’d brush up on my greetings for each. Though I should say “Goodbye” to America instead of “Hello”- I believe the Beatles would’ve argued otherwise.
Being my first time out of the country, besides Canada, which let’s be real doesn’t count, I am excited… but calm. I’ve always been the type of person to not realize the gravity of a situation until it is happening right under my nose. I even remember as a kid when Christmas neared, I was never excited about Santa’s arrival until the morning I woke up and actually saw presents under the tree. I believe the only element of surprise involved was how year after year my crazy sister Stephanie didn’t receive coal, but I digress.
So here’s to the calm before the storm, cheers.
