Flying home from Colombia.
After six months traveling in Latin America, I boarded a flight (well, three flights) back home to Chicago. It was a bittersweet journey. Sure, I was ready to eat familiar foods, see my friends and family, be back in a city I love. But I was enjoying Colombia. A lot.
A month earlier I was very ready to return home. It was no secret that I just never got into Central America the way I got into Asia and I was just ready to be done with it.
But then I arrived in Colombia, and all that turned around. And now I am so excited to travel more there and all around South America some day in the future. And I really didn’t want to leave.
But, alas, I had my ticket home. And I had a ticket on to Ireland for two and a half weeks after I returned. So even though I was back in Chicago, the adventure was far from over…
