11 weeks ’til I blow this popstand and make my way back to the Americas for “the next episode”.
Can you tell that I have been counting down? I’m majorly excited for the near future, but part of it stems from the fact that I haven’t really travelled anywhere in what feels like ages. “Ages” meaning Christmas (when I went to Berlin and Istanbul), of course.
When you’re a teacher in an international school, three months without going away can seem like a long time. I was supposed to go away to Malaysia during Chinese New Year this past February, but I was sick and had to cancel.
And so, I’ve been counting down until Easter break, when Liebling flies back out here and meets me in Bali. We’re going for 12 days, then flying back to HK for 4 days, then jetting off again to spend a long weekend in Singapore with a group of friends.
And Malaysia? I ended up getting a flight credit for the ticket I cancelled, so I’m hoping to go for a weekend to Kuala Lumpur.
The school year is winding down, and my time in Asia is coming to a close along with it. In just under 3 months I’ll pack my life up into two suitcases and fly back to the Western Hemisphere, the closing of one chapter of life and the beginning of another.
