So in 5 days, I’ll be heading to Europe on a solo adventure! I came across this the other day while on my first ever 40km bike ride and eating Creme brûlée at Crackle Creme in Chinatown, and I thought to myself “how befitting!” All my life, I’ve lived with the influence of expectations from others, whether it is school, family, friends, or significant others.
Anyway, on the topic of food, please order the VIETNAMESE COFFEE CREME BRULEE at Crackle Creme. There was also Earl Gray and a few other flavours, but the Vietnamese Coffee version is my favourite.
They basically have the mixture prepared in a container, and they torch the sugar on top of it when you order, so it is fresh and ready to go.
But THIS IS MY LIFE.
I am in control of it now, and it’s never felt so exciting and frightening before, heading off to the world of unknown with no one to rely on but myself. Some may have traveled plenty of times alone and think it is no biggie, but this Eurotrip is definitely what I needed to signify this immense growth I’ve been experiencing in the last half year of just overcoming internal challenges, one after the other. I’ve come to realize that the only barrier to success and accomplishment is myself. The situation is never to blame, it’s your mindset that makes all the difference.
Can’t wait to put my new learnings to the test in 5 days… Counting down!
