So with the Philippines now off the cards, we still had a decision to make. We started researching places, going into town to use the fickle internet, discussing costs, surf size, crowds, seasons, accommodation.
And there were so many options, it became overwhelming:
The many islands of Indonesia
We were going around in circles, it made us dizzy. There were so many “buts” and “what ifs.” It was actually becoming a boring conversation and a frustrating one.
“Right!” We agreed. “No talking about it for a few days. Lets get back to living in the present and we’ll just see what happens.”
A day later after a fun surf session.
“Matt, I really want to go to Hawaii”
“Yea me too. Let’s go!”
And that’s how our decision was made. And then we were provided with so many solutions on how we can still do it on a budget. We scored tickets for $479. And two different people explained how we could very cheaply get a car and camp. Amazing huh?
The message of this story for us is to go for what you really want in life and the universe will help make it happen. There is no point dwelling on the how’s and what ifs. Be brave and trust it will all work out.
P.S it’s been awhile since the last surf update. So here is a quick fill in. Matt is doing extremely well. He wants/needs a shorter board now. And Jill is progressing really well and now starting to go along with waves and attempting some steeper take offs.
