Somewhere between Loas and Cambodia the realization that this epic trip, which began as a vague idea and evolved in my mind over a decade, had an actual end, that was ever approaching, crept into my mind. With each passing day and week, which seem to be flying by at this point, we grow closer to The End.
Don’t get me wrong, I am not dreading returning to our home on Kauai, full of friends, natural beauty, and a lovely laid back lifestyle; who could? It is the ceasing of this current lifestyle that is causing me to be uneasy.
I have become accustomed to being surrounded by the exotic and it is intoxicating and keeps me motivated. This journey is full of the unexpected. Adventure surrounds us. Even on the most mundane of days there is always something new, literally surprising us, opening our eyes, and causing figurative lightbulbs in our brains to ignite.
