Just My Luck
Tomorrow, I'm about to start my Camino. This, I might say, also happened by luck. Until now, I'm just still amazed. I met some new friends and it just happened—we planned to have a long trip together. Hm, and the budget to traveling around some countries in Europe... I wonder where did all the cash come from, anyway? I know I've been working very hard this two years, but it just hard to believe.
Not to mention the schengen visa from the Spain Embassy. FYI, we will get into Europe through Spain. Many people said the visa wasn't easy to get, but my friends and I could get it easily. Thank God. Of course we had good reason to get one, right? We want to have pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela. We also had fufill all the requirements needed for the visa, including complete itinerary and tickets booked.
Another luck and good sign is, flights to Europe are already opened now as the volcanic ashes of Mount Eyjafjallajokull (I still don't know how to spell it) no longer contaminated the European sky. I have to admit this volcanic ashes was making us worried, but some how I was sure that the sky will be clear before our time to go. I hope everything will be okay during the journey... :)
The truth is, I have lots of hopes on this journey. Actually, I'm dying to be born again. Somehow, I just feel there are lots of things I still don't know about myself. I have this question since years ago, but I couldn't find the right answer yet. What my real passion is? I even hardly find something distinctive about myself.
All I know is, at this moment I am trapped in my own pretty complex situation. I live in deadlines—something I actually hate. I am surrounded by my work and things that I'm possesed. I also have too much things I want, that make me hard to focus on doing things that I really like. Essentially, I just hope I can be a better person after this. So, wish me luck, yaaa... :)
