But I am already sitting in a boat.
So, looks like Kohala's China tour plans fell through. I have no job, and no reason to go to China... Aside from the fact that I have already spent almost $2000 on plane tickets. So I'm gonna go anyway. I hate to sound cliche, but everything does seem to happen for a reason, since everything inevitably leads to something else.
To tell you the truth, I have always wanted to go on an adventure. I saw friends and family go off and travel on their own and I always said "I'll do that someday, when I'm ready". Well, why bother waiting?! If you start waiting you'll never really be ready. That's what I am telling myself now at least.
Well, this means I don't have to buy an expensive camera and worry about it being stolen. I won't have to carry too many valuables on me, a great relief since I will probably get robbed on this trip. I could just leave all my really expensive stuff in Tokyo and travel with the bare necessities.
I probably don't have to buy an insanely expensive backpack either. Ooo, and now I can take much more leisurely trips if I want to.
