As we bump along the dirt road I find myself starring out the window. Watching the small towns zip by, locals hard at work, farmlands in the distance. Travelling by local bus is not only cheap but it gives me the opportunity to get lost in my thoughts.
We’ve been travelling almost 3 months now which means according to our plans we have 3 months left. The truth is I love it - I love exploring a new country, a new town, I love tasting the different foods, learning about the different cultures. But the real truth is that I miss home more than I had expected. I miss my friends, I miss having a routine, having a purpose and sometimes most of all, I miss making jewellery. All the daydreaming makes me eager to get back to my bench, to experiment my new ideas, to hold, cut and solder silver again.
I dream about the possibility of taking costal chains full time when I arrive home. I have ideas. I have dreams. I am eager. But as much as I miss it, I know the most important thing for me right now is to keep travelling, keep exploring and to keep generating ideas. And when I get home I’m taking things to a whole new level!
