On the 30th of every month, I post on the awesome collaborative blog Hooray Collective. Here’s what I wrote for this month.
I’m preparing to go on vacation and see my extended family for 10 days, no small feat considering the flight costs four figures and it takes ~20 hours for me to fly there. I can’t put into words how much I look forward to seeing all of my relatives and to soak in all of the sights and sounds and smells of the city of my birth, the city half of my roots come from. Opportunities for me to go back to visit happen all too rarely and this one, this chance visit, is some I’m still pinching myself to ensure that no, it isn’t a dream that I’ve managed to work out this unexpected trip home.
