Just writing really quickly before I take the metro to Pudong, International Airport in Shanghai to catch my flight back to the World. I’ll finish recounting the rest of my adventure stories when I am home when I have more time on my hands than I can handle. Not only will there be more stories, but an epilogue to how I am dealing with being home as well as a detailed account of how I felt about what I experienced. Also, expect months worth of choice pictures and I have hours of video as well I need to edit. When I get back to Canada, the real work will begin it seems.
Leaving China has left me with a bittersweet feeling. While I am excited to get back home, this is the end of the longest journey of my life and probably the longest distance I will ever travel. My father said it best to me last night ‘a fitting end to a grand jaunt’ and what a jaunt it has been.
Thank you again to all my loyal readers and followers. I hope this has been as entertaining for you to read as it was for me to experience and write about. I’ll be back in Canada in the next forty-eight hours, so please do not hesitate to reach me if you want to get together and catch up. Also, I’ll have my Facebook back up and running, so you can always reach me there.
Thank you again everyone. I hope one day I will be able to put my deepest gratitude for your support into words. This is not the end, but merely the beginning of a new, more introspective chapter of ‘Jake on a Jaunt.’
