Emotional trip

6 comments

For the first time in many years I’m going to take a vacation. I’m going to Croatia where my family comes from, and I will stay there for a whole month, to visit the cities and places that are related with my parent’s life. It’s going to be a very emotional trip, since my mom passed away only a few months ago.

I’m gonna met with my cousins and my aunt Mira, who is still alive, to hear her stories about the old times. But mainly, I’m gonna take long walks by my own thru the streets of the lovely cities and by the seashore, contemplating the many and beautiful islands scattered along the coast. No hurries. I want, if is possible, to met my roots.

My trip is only two weeks away, and I’m already very nervous, thinking about what should I include in my baggage and what should I left at home. I can’t wait for the moment to check-in for my flight!

    • Thank you. I’m so excited! It is beautiful. I have never been for so long there. The best part is to be able to do whatever I want.

  2. It sounds as though this will be a very rich trip: Rich in emotional intensity, and rich with the luxury of time and space to follow your history and your interests, and wherever the coastline may lead. Have a wonderful trip!
