The night before going on a trip is one of the best feelings in the world. Do you remember when you were in middle school and the boy you liked told you that he had a crush on you? Well the feeling is similar to that. I have been planning to visit Montreal all summer and can’t believe this is finally it. Besides getting to visit Montreal another dream of mine is going to come true tomorrow. I have traveled to 18 different countries in my 21 years of life and sadly to say most of those trips were on my own or with groups of people I had just met. I have been to so many romantic destinations and truly felt the love in the air but something was always missing. I had no lover to kiss me under the Eiffel Tower, I had no partner to take a gondola ride with me in Venice, and no one to say cheers with as Big Ben struck midnight. I have always wanted someone there it was just that I never had someone who wanted to be. My boyfriend and I have been dating since the 11th grade. Now I am not exactly the kind of girl who is attached to my boyfriend and would call him my everything, yes I do love him dearly but sadly most of the time my dreams do come first. He attends college in Massachusetts and I attend school in Pennsylvania. Those states aren’t exactly close and with an 8 hour drive separating us and no car to get to each other we have become very good at doing the long distance thing. Not to mention this past semester I just spent in Italy while he was stuck in Mass. It goes to show we can make it through anything. But as I travel and watch the world go by I see people in love, I used to look away but I have grown accustom to smiling to myself because I see others happy. I was always confused by this concept and scared to feel that way, I guess you could say I had a fear of commitment. But as the days passed I couldn’t help but wonder when my turn was. Well world today is that day. In a few short hours I get to live my dream and have my love by my side. Some girls dream of the ball gown on their wedding day but for me this is all I ever wanted; a back pack, a map, and a lover to stand beside me with no destination in our futures. Cheers to happy endings!
