So after a couple of months of indecision, we finally have permanent travel plans thought out from now until next summer. A lot of things are happening this year alone, with a trip to Bangkok and a few other Thai cities planned from the 24th of November till the 2nd week of December. Then February of next year I head to the capital of Malaysia for a 3 day Forensics Tournament where I get to compete in Solo Acting and Impromptu against over a dozen of the top international schools in South East Asia. Korea, Hong Kong, Thailand. I got to watch it last year, and seeing some amazing performances has really motivated me to practice hard this year. But then not even 2 weeks after that on March 1st, my parents and I leave Malaysia with our bags packed. Saying goodbye to our home for the past year and a half, we split ways with my Dad heading down to Guatemala to fix up our previous home of 9 years, our catamaran Melekai, who took quite a beating on our 2 months sailing aventure last year. While he works on Melekai, my Mum and I go the other way and fly into Berlin, Germany. After a couple of days, we meet up with a friend and visit my sister who studies in Prague, Czech Republic for a week. Then we see another friend in Austria, make a pit stop in France, and go back to visit my sister for another week or so before heading to London in the UK. After a couple of days there, we head to Rhode Island, U.S with a few day pit-stop in the capital of Iceland.
After visiting family for a couple of days, we reunite with my dad in a tiny town in the neighboring state of Massachusetts (Which I’ll need to learn how to spell some day – thank goodness for autocorrect). Gilbertville is about an hour away from Boston, and is where my Dad grew up. While we will most likely get there towards the end of April, we get to spend the summer fixing up a 3 story house that my dad grew up in, and was left to my Dad and his family when my Grandfather passed away. The last time I was there, was well over 3 or maybe even 4 years ago.
Now that school year I will spend in a local High School (The only school in the area). My 3 years of Homeschooling will end, and I’ll be thrust into the American School system for the very first time since I was 6 years old. Very scary. Though unlike when I took my 7th and 8th grade in the Local Mexican School, I’m studying in my native language. Always a plus, right?
And that is honestly everything. My dad will be travelling the states for his music more, and my mum will get to go travel for work. Somewhere inside I really hope I’ll be able to travel, but with small holidays and strict rules from School, it’s not very likely. But luckily for me this will be one of the most dramatic changes of scenery in my life. Large mountains, endless forest, lots of rushing rivers and lakes. And 4 seasons. A bit different from Malaysia and Mexico :).
Until next time guys!
