I have been incredibly lucky to live pretty awesome life with all the travels all over the world, experiencing some pretty sweet adventures, and doing most of the things I have wanted to do. Alaska has been one of the coolest adventures I could have ever hoped for. However, I am thinking of Alaska with mixed feelings. Alaska has been
good great for me but…
Our Alaska tour is reaching the downhill side: while i don’t know exactly when heading to somewhere else, I know it’s coming one day.
I do have my own wish list for the next stop on this adventure, mainly locations that are outdoorsy and have decent universities for my PhD studies.
It’s not hard to guess that I’m writing this in Lower 48. Tasting the life on the mainland again.
Yesterday I was rushing through the airports and it hit me. I miss Lower 48. I miss airports. I miss some level of formality and style. I miss easiness of traveling to any corner of the world.
I was sitting at United’s lounge at Denver airport and watched a never ending list ode parting flights. To locations that I so miss. And that are so time-consuming to reach from Alaska. I have truly enjoyed dressing up a bit – nothing fancy but at least I can have a nice hairdo and high heels. Without looking an oddball among people who happily wear their fishing boots and dirty jeans in the best restaurant of the town.
I do look forward to PCS’ing, and new adventures.
