Exactly a month away from sailing/ Exatamente um mes

A month. Exactly a month from today, I will be leaving Nassau,Bahamas and embarking in the MV Explorer for my most wanted experience of a lifetime.

I was told to not expect too much, or to not expect at all. Apparently my dreams could be crushed on finding out how places really look like in “real life,”  instead of how I’ve imagined them.

Yeah, I was disappointed when I started to realize India did not look like what I saw on The Little Princess movie, with the prince and the princess and all the magic.

In my opinion, that is the beauty of traveling and my inspiration to want to travel. I am looking for the truth and the reality. Of course, the “truth” varies depending on each individual’s eyes.

I want “my truth” or whatever makes my reality.

I want to have my own opinion upon a place because I experienced it, not because I read about it. I want to see it, hear it, touch it and taste it. I want it all.

Can I just grab the whole world with both arms, please? I would embrace it all, if that was possible.

So here I am, a month away from embracing all of these places. I am not expecting too much or too little – I just know I will appreciate every single experience I face out there.

I am ready, I just am.

Um mes. Exatamente um mes e eu estarei saindo de Nassau, Bahamas e embarcando no MV Explorer para a minha mais procurada experiencia de vida.

Me disseram para nao esperar muito, ou nao esperar absolutamente nada. Aparentemente, meus sonhos podem ser esmagados quando descobrir como esses lugares realmente sao na “vida real,” ao inves do jeito em que eu os imaginei.

Sim, eu estava desapontada quando eu me dei conta que a India nao parecia com o que vi no filme A Princesinha, com os principes e princesas e toda a sua magica.

Na minha opiniao, essa e a beleza de viajar e minha inspiração de querer viajar. Eu estou a procura da verdade e da realidade. Claro, que a “verdade” vareia nos olhos de cada indivíduo.

Eu quero a “verdade” que faca a minha realidade.

Eu quero ter a minha propia opinião de um certo lugar, porque eu tive a experiência de estar la, nao pelas coisas que li. Eu quero ver, eu quero sentir, eu quero ouvir, tocar e experimentar. Eu quero tudo.

Posso abraçar o mundo com os meus dois bracos, porfavor? Eu faria se pudesse.

Entao, aqui estou, um mês somente de poder abraçar todos esses lugares. Nao estou esperando nem muito, nem pouco – So sei que irei apreciar cada experiência que eu enfrentar.

Estou pronta, sei que estou.
