Today I sit overlooking the Bosphorus Strait from a rooftop patio in Istanbul. I arrived over three weeks ago and this is literally the fifth day of sunshine I’ve encountered. The preceding days were cloudy, rainy, and cold with only a handful of moments where the sun managed to break through the thick blanket of ominous clouds. The weather isn't quite what I was hoping for, but then again, it is the beginning of December. All things considered, I can't really complain since I’m sitting outside in shorts, flip-flops, and t-shirt. As surprising as the weather may be, today marks a far more important milestone - the sixth month anniversary of my departure from the US.

six months out
So here I am, six months out from swapping my life as a NYC consultant for one of a wandering nomad. The final countdown has begun, and while there are only 20 some-odd weeks left before my departure, I strangely do not feel nervous, scared, or sad. Instead I have an overwhelming sense of peace which I have not experienced in quite some time.
