Random Thoughts on an Airplane to Europe

I have been fortunate enough to be able to travel to Europe for a second time.  I seriously didn’t think I’d be back so soon after living in Stuttgart for 8-months in 2011.  Last time, I traveled there to work at Robert Bosch GmbH for an internship, but this time I would be traveling to Europe to compete in RoboCup 2013 with the UBC Thunderbots, a robotics competition.  This competition gave me a really good opportunity to travel around Europe again.  I thought I’d be really excited to go back, but instead I felt really uneasy on the flight there.

As I sat on the plane, my mind began to wander. I had this weird fear that something might go wrong like I would get mugged or something or maybe there was some fundamental mistake in my trip planning.  I was reminded of the time my wallet was stolen in Brussels and I certainly didn’t want anything like that to happen again.  And then I thought about how much fun I had when I lived in Stuttgart.  I have very fond memories of my experience in Germany.  I then felt a slight rush of emotion and almost reliving some of my experiences in my head.  Then I figured I just had to be confident with my trip preparations and let myself have fun on this trip.  After all, not many people get an opportunity like this.
