London 2012

Borne out of the loopy but hopeless dreamer in me, plus an acquiescent – no, make that tolerant- friend that challenged me to actually make this happen. I’ve always dreamed of a European backpacking trip but pragmatically speaking, I cannot afford it. Maybe 5 to 10 years from now I could, but in two years? Never.

So I’ve come to my own terms and accept the fact that it will be just United Kingdom, for now. I’m sure there’s plenty of things that I can do and enjoy in there, interesting stuff that will fill up my schedule not to mention the amount of time it will take me to hunt British actors and rock stars that I’m obsessing on. That’s if I ever get approved for a tourist visa first haha.

But I’ve got a good feeling about it all. I’ve already started my “London 2012 jar fund”. Hopefully it will be enough to get me to UK in about 2 years, if not I’ll always have my visa-free Southeast Asian neighbors.

The moral of the story is this: Peruvian trip will not be happening in the next 3 years. Perhaps in 5-7 years. I can always wait but I will definitely make sure that it will happen.

Ad Astra Per Aspera!!
