Clicking my heels three times

Today is my last morning in Scotland and Europe overall. I’m sad but excited at the same time because in an hour I am getting on a plane to start my journey home. I am ready.

My laptop hard drive died back in mid-September (and the exchange rate and my budget deemed it too expensive to fix here) so everything I had drafted and intended to post and new things from the adventures since those have been put on hold. It’s been freeing to not be at a laptop, work or personal (though I have really wanted to type out my travel journal); and I’ve enjoyed my travels that much more.

And so I write this on my iPhone so I can close the loop that opened back in August. As much of a first world (maybe just North American?) problem as this is, I needed a break. Plain and simple; a recharge of my batteries. And I was very fortunate to be supported by both my guy and my work to be able to do so for these two months. I am forever grateful.

But I miss my guy. I miss my bed. I miss Vancouver.

So for every flight that I am on today (three), I will click the heels of my metaphorical sparkly red slippers. Because there is no place like home. It absolutely is where your heart is, and mine is in Vancouver.
