Dad: “So when are you going back to California?”

Me: “Uh, Dad I’m not sure, sometime this year, maybe Dec”

Dad: “Maybe? It’s been how long now…? When are you gonna stop gallivanting around?”

Me: (long pause) I don’t know, Dad…..Uh, I gotta run. Love you, bye!”

Gotta love my conversations with my Dad. Every single one this year always ended with him asking me when I was coming home…and it always ended with me hanging up with a ‘gotta-run-i-love-you-bye’

Well, today, I’m about to make his day.

I just booked my one-way flight out of China. I’ll be flying to Guam to spend the holidays with my family before I head back home to San Diego. Woo hoo!

Home… to stay? Am I ready to give up my travel boots? I don’t think so. 🙂

D-day is the 19th of December. OMG.

It really doesn’t matter how long you’ve been away….once you step foot on your home soil, you can’t help but feel so welcomed. The memories start flooding in your head and pouring out one by one (the good and the crazy). Island cruising in my beat up corolla, endless hotel parties, beach bbqs, getting chased by boonie dogs all the way home hahaha….

I’m glad I made the trip home. It’s an awesome feeling being back after being away for such a long time. My two weeks flew by but it was definitely well spent; quality time with the fam, reconnecting with friends whom I haven’t seen in nine years, witnessing breathtaking sunsets, lounging at the beach, stuffing my face with Chamorro/Filipino food. Dang, just when I was getting use to the island life again….time runs out and it’s time to go.

and possibly my last adventure for 2009 (well maybe) haha :)

I know I’ve said this before, but I’m going to say it again: I love Chinese holidays! A week ago from today (Oct. 1st) marked China's National Day, the 60th ... [Continue reading this entry]
