The Bye-Bye Blues

As I write this, we're sitting at Phoenix Sky Harbor airport, waiting for our flight to London. We'll be landing at Heathrow tomorrow afternoon and have a 1-day layover before departing for Croatia.

We're feeling a mix of emotions right now...

We're excited that the big day has finally arrived. Things are starting to feel very real.

But even though we knew this day was coming, it still feels like a hasty goodbye. I guess you can never really be emotionally prepared for leaving. It's still painful. There's never an easy way to do it.

It's also strange to be leaving on an open-ended trip. We know that we'll be back in Phoenix someday, but at this point, it's not clear when that will be. Rather than saying goodbye, can we just say until we meet again?

Wish us luck, and we'll be posting an update once we reach Europe.
