Journal entry in Medellín, August 22nd, 2021
I have really enjoyed my first 2 weeks in Medellín.
I’ve been living a very balanced life; with lots of good food, coffee, cocktails, all while working online, swimming in the rooftop pool, going on beautiful hikes in the tall mountains of Medellín, and doing yoga as the sunrises.
I am very happy, content even, as I’ve spent most of my time laughing, hugging, loving my life. In a way, this trip is curing my soul.
It’s such a good trip that I am afraid to leave. I’m afraid that more adventures, or even going home, will be soul-crushing.
But still, I am excited, because Medellín has presented me with a beautiful life that I could have never imagined. I want to travel more, explore the world, and have loads of fun.
I’ve seen the good, bad, and scary of the world, but I’ve also had a taste of Medellín, where life has been priceless. I think this trip, losing my job, COVID, and all of the craziness happening in my life has made me nothing but more grateful for the life that I do have. Keep pushing, Alexus. It’s worth it.
