Chapter 4

The Escape

The day came sooner than I expected. Was working part time to take some breathers, only packed a day before, 5 pairs, underwear, beach shorts, t-shirts consisted of the main bulk of the haul. Stacked with a laptop and a camera for the beauty of the unknown, or rather my unknown. Welcoming the opportunity of the universal faith to shine on me.

Accompanied with my loved ones for the goodbyes while cluelessly excited with it all. It was the beginning of the mysterious virus COVID19 that was spreading havoc in asian capitals. Many also came with the story of pigs mysteriously dying and Bali being the hidden gem of potential camp for an outbreak.

With a story like that, what better way to start an adventurous trip of a lifetime.  My goodbyes were short, parents knew it all, friends casually informed during the trip, or before. 

A sense of excitement and joy, 

People I loved waved on, smiles across.

A travel alone abroad,.. oh. how long?

One month! wow that’s long.

Rebellious energy within me said goodbye

Turned and walked on.

The whole time I was leaving, only had one thought, and it was to get away from it all, was excited but at the same time distracted. My loving parter who supported it all, would she be doing fine? Would she go through adventure in the country of the warm stale winds?

As I walked upon the gates of departure, everything faded within and in return a surge of the unknown brought the excitement, I’m finally flying.

Stepped out to freedom, crashed straight to my homestay abroad. Exciting as it gets, I think I’m loving this new me.
