STOKED ON LIFE!!!!
So I have been going through a bit of a rough spot recently and, in reality, have just been sitting around waiting for my trip to start. A couple of hours ago I came to this realization and decided to look into changing my dates; it worked out in my favor! I was able to secure the last seat in a flight that is leaving on the 23rd of February. The big changes to my trip are, first I'm obviously leaving earlier (9 days earlier, to be exact), second I'm not cruising through Auckland, New Zealand anymore (I'm just stopping there for an hour instead of for 3 days) this is kind of a bummer but I'm anticipating being in a considerably better mood once I set out on my adventure and it's a tradeoff that is totally worth it to me.
I am ecstatic!!!
