3 pm – Somewhere in the air, June 28th 2012
After weeks of stressful planning and packing, yesterday I finally realized that the #MEtrip was getting real and… I relaxed!
This morning I woke up (late) to the thought of ‘why am I doing this to myself? Why don´t I just stay at home with all my comforts?’ – the answer is that I know that in just a few hours I will be reminded of how miserable I would feel if I ever gave up on this project.
So here I am on the flight to Istanbul, Turkey. My phone is off, my ‘Middle East’ Lonely Planet guide in the seatpocket. Turkish people all around (and a crying kid just beside me). Man, Turkish is a mysterious language!!!
3 hours to touch down. Happier than ever!
