Today was my first true test of strength and independence. Flying internationally solo is intimidating. Throw on top of that a delayed flight, a missed flight, and getting lost in an airport I've never been too. Oh, and only getting about twenty minutes of sleep. It's easy to get overwhelmed and hard to keep calm. It all worked out in the end, I got a new flight and a voucher for a big delicious pizza to boot. Traveling isn't all magic and fun and relaxation. Sometimes it's uncomfortable and scary and overwhelming and all you can do is keep breathing and know that everything will be totally fine. Now if only I could take a hot shower and sleep for longer than twenty minutes I could really get this adventure rolling.
