And We Are Off!!

Well guys, this is it. As I am writing this, I'm standing in line for my first flight in a long day of traveling. I got up at 4:30 am and will land in Dublin 2:00 am Utah time, 10:00 am Dublin time. I expect that I will do much sleeping. It's hard to believe that this actually happening. I'm going to fall asleep on a plane and wake up across the world. This is an insane experience, one that I am still in disbelief is actually happening. It's very surreal; I feel like I'm in a dream. Although, that could very well be caused by the lack of sleep. Switching gears a bit, I want to talk about my backpack. It's green and lightly worn. All in all it doesn't appear very remarkable. However, looks can be deceiving. The backpack I am carrying with me in Europe belonged someone really special. Her name was Alex. Quite honestly, if she had not passed away in she would likely be doing this trip with me. She was very special and a kindred spirit. We were at very similar spots in our lives when I knew her. I know that she is still doing this trip with me, just in a different form. Now I am stepping onto the plane bound for Iceland and then Dublin. And so my adventure begins.
