It was in that moment of free fall where the wheels of the plane kissed terra firma goodbye and embraced the sky when I realized that in three days I would return a changed woman. Solo explorations are important for the soul. They enable one to go into the world and become wonderfully lost, they allow you to discover just how strong you are.
Sitting in my seat, face pressed to the window watching Dubai fade away I understand that this is a spiritual journey. Armed with a passport and a sense of adventure, I look ahead as the plane climbs higher and higher.
Deep breath, here we go.
