I'm sitting in the airport in Cairo at 7 am waitin for my flight to board.
This morning we leave sand and sun for Scottish highlands. We're flying to Glasgow and I am so excited it's a little ridiculous. We've spent too much time in the middle east this year, traveling to Istanbul, upper Egypt and Jordan. Those trips were all amazing, but it starts to wear you down after awhile, the lack of greenery.
So I'm very excited and cant wait to eat a traditional English fry up breakfast, drink amazing tea, see men in kilts and walk through mountains and lakes. I'm already sighing in appreciation.
On a writerly note, I got my first rejection letter today! That exclamation note was purposeful. I'm actually really excited about it because it makes me feel like I've finally moved into the realm of being a real writer.
This excitement will probably not last very long as more rejections mount on my head, but for now I'm content.
Gotta get on that plane! To all my traveling Cairo friends, safe travels!
