Goodbyes

A single suitcase and a violin, in the wilderness.

That’s the only painting hanging in my tiny, one room AirBnB apartment I moved to a few weeks ago. I’ve stayed there as part of becoming a digital nomad and selling most of my possessions.

In these past few weeks, I’ve seen a lot of friends and said my goodbyes. Although I’m not sure when I’ll be back (could be a few months; could be years), each time I said goodbye to a friend – it became clearer to me – your social life has a great impact on your daily life, and even if it’s friends you haven’t seen in ages, it still matters a great deal.

That’s what worries me the most about being a nomad (and especially when coast-to-coasting). More than finding work, dealing with bureaucracy, being robbed and even paying taxes. I guess I’ll have to step out of my comfort zone and find ways of making new friends. I’ll keep you posted on how this goes 😀

I’m writing this post from the airport. Hope I meet some new friends and return sooner rather than later to my friends back home.
