The Wandering Gypsy


Here I am,
properly caffeinated, a little bit hyper, a little bit nervous,
tres excited, not that scared.
Expecting chaos, embracing change, praying for a safe journey 
and friendly people in my over-night train.
Dreaming of Italian sunshine, mourning German hospitality,
armed with hand-written notes from new found friends, a
bunch of heavy bags and coat I bought in Paris.
That poignant feeling of leaving for the unseen, the unknown, the unheard,
holding on to lesson learnt, treasuring memories made and playing
the last 5 months back in my head like a slideshow.

I'm going, I'm going, I'm going.

Aufwiedersehen Deutschland, Buongiorno Italia!
