It is amazing how your life can change in a blink of an eye. All of a sudden, your computer screen blinks with a new email, you open it and there it is… the answer that you’ve been waiting for: the visa approval!!!
You try to focus on every little word, reread it to make sure you’re reading it correctly, check your name again and again, and the dates. A wave of relief washes over you before all the excitement takes over. You look around and manage to keep in the shout which is stuck in your throat. Your smiles grows immensely and you feel like jumping up and down but there are too many people around, oblivious of what’s happening to you, so you keep it all bottled up… but just for a little while… as you just cannot help but blurring it out to the first person you see 🙂
Then slowly it starts to dawn on you all the things that you need to get done, the first one being to set a date for our departure. Once that is done we know that there will no turning back and the real adventure will begin…
Right now, I feel like an airplane on the runaway, engines running full blast, just waiting for the air controller command to take off!
