Happy Sunday, my loves! I have been dropping hints about my big trip for weeks and today I will eventually reveal my destination. It's Hong Kong!! I will be working and living there for four months starting in October. Isn't that exciting?!
I seriously don't know what hit me when I applied for that job last fall. Probably I had a sudden now or never feeling. I will be graduating from college in a few weeks so this is the time for little adventures like this I guess. Plus I must have had some kind of presentiment that being far away from home would be very healthy for me in 2014.
I have never been to Asia before therefore I will probably experinece an imense cultural shock but from what I have heard, I will have the time of my life. Hong Kong must be very diverse with tons of stuff to do and explore. I hope I will have enough time for all of it besides work and that I will find fun people to do these things with!
Now that I have plenty of freetime after having turned in my bachelor's thesis this Friday (!!!) I will have to prepare a little more about the country, the mentality, dos & donts etc. But I think I am actually pretty good at accepting other cultures' ways of doing things and I am open to trying everything. You will never hear me say no during those four months. Promise.
The only thing I am worried about is the flight though. I think I never told you but I have a great fear of flying - or to be correct a fear of falling. Flying is very stressful for my mind and body because I have to pull myself together so much in order not to panic. And I don't know how I will be able to stand such a high stress level for 14 hours straight without going insane. I am actually planning on taking a strong sleeping pill and waking up during our landing. Haha.
So yep, this is my plan. I still have to pinch myself to make sure I am not dreaming. I will keep up my blog of course and share my experiences with you:)
