You Hate Us Cuz You Ain't Us

To blog or not to blog, that is the question

USA | Thursday, 1 January 2015 | Views [487] | Comments [5]

So as I lay here in NYC, awaiting the arrival of Matt and anticipating the start of our exciting journey tomorrow, I continue to question my dedication to blog-keeping over the next six weeks. Will I do it? Can I be bothered? Will I waste precious time in doing so, or worse: will I regret not having written documentation of my once-in-a-lifetime mock-Euro-student-'gap-year' adventure??? I think the potential agony of regret in the latter option is what drove me to start this. Well, also because I just signed up for travelers insurance (last-minute, I know), and there was an option to start a blog. Secret about Emily: she needs to be spoonfed anything to find motivation. Smh.

I feel excited right now :) I have been having these flashes and visions in my head of all the sites I'll see, from tropical paradises to expansive salt flats. I sort of feel actual bliss in these moments. I get excited about the footage I'll capture and about the fact that I can use that footage as an outlet for what I shall humbly call my slowly dying creative self. This pent-up beast of artistic expression which I thought just might have wilted away to nothing shall be released! 


Tomorrow morning, we land in Cartagena, Colombia around 1.30pm. I should go book a hostel now.


Stay tuned for the journey, folks.

Pad not so great at the moment as Matt has the stomach flu and I will inevitably have it in a day or two. Taking it easy in Cartagena. After both cases on gastroenteritis, the adventuring will commence.
