My Life is One Big Boarding Call
Right now, I’m in seat 33A on a British Airways flight headed from Kuwait to London, to Montreal.
I’ve been in this seat (not this particular seat but, you know, figuratively and all) at least half a dozen times in the last year and a half. I’ve been leaving Kuwait and returning to it so many times at this point that this process should be second nature to me by now.
But, oddly enough, it’s not–and I doubt it ever will be. I’m one of those people for whom saying goodbye never gets easy. I always get that tinging sting in my chest whenever I have to hug my grandmother goodbye, or whenever I look out on Kuwait’s seafront, knowing it’ll be a while before I breathe in its salty gusts.
As much as I love travel, and different experiences, and all the excitement that new places bring, I will never completely stop missing Kuwait. Say what you will and complain all you want, but Kuwait is special.
So just before I leave this beautiful place, I’d just like to give you all a resounding, all-encompassing THANK YOU. This summer I’ve had the pleasure of meeting so many wonderful people and experiencing so many worthwhile moments through this blog. Thank you guys for helping make this summer so special and for embracing the blog the way that you have in these last few months.
I know that I’ve been MIA for the last 2 weeks, busying myself with about a million and one things (blog related and otherwise), but I’m hoping that I can focus back on blogging now that things have begun to settle down.
Hopefully, in the coming weeks I’ll have a new layout, a fiction series, and, uhm, other stuff ready for all you awesome and super patient readers.
Well, now they’ve just turned the seatbelt sign on so I’d best sign off before some snippy flight attendant starts harassing me with a Cockney accent. See you guys in the next timezone!
All my love!
