    Huge congrats on making this big and liberating choice! Just subscribed to your email updates, so I can't wait to hear more about your travels.

    I'm planning some solo travel soon but haven't decided the route yet (India, Nepal, Southeast Asia, New Zealand?) so maybe your updates will give me some ideas :)

      Hi Lily. Yeah, I am such a procrastinator. I haven't really decided the route yet either. Working on tickets right now. The prices are a fair bit higher than when I last looked (pre-visa approval).

    I hear you – congrats on orchestrating the leave of absence.

    Great that you were able to secure the time away and have the job waiting as an option :-) So the countdown is officially on!

      Countdown to unemployement!
      …It won't be official til I have the tickets booked.

    Thats great your employers are willing to let you take the leave, as much as I like the idea of having nothing to come back to having that security must be nice.
