Endings are so tough because they make me reflect on the good times and the connections that I made. But then the sense of loss creeps in. I couldn’t take the constant “goodbyes” and losing people. It had been over a year of meeting people, building a relationship, and then suddenly saying goodbye. It was becoming too much for me.
It was our last night camping in the Australian outback. I was really starting to enjoy the company of the other 19 people on the tour. Jokes were told, we laughed, we drank, and we sang! What more could you ask for?
I sat next to Suzanne and had the chance to get to know her better. I was happy to have her on the tour. We explored Lake Argyle on a boat, enjoying an incredible sunset. The tour guide, Damien, became more and more attractive to me.
Sometimes you get a wonderful group when you sign up for a group tour. My group in Vietnam was awesome and we had a blast being silly!
It was the final day of a 9-day adventure tour in Thailand with REI Adventures. We spent the morning doing a cooking class. We had fun celebrating our time together, and I felt joy. It was also my 39th birthday. I was thrilled to celebrate with it in Thailand.
We biked through the rice fields in Thailand and stopped at a cave to explore. The cave was extremely hot and humid.
