because they’re not allowed.
salvation. mountain.
before you look. understand that this is a place that will live in my heart forever.
it’s a place that will remind you that you can do anything, even if it seems crazy.

get home. em shoots a little music video.
last night dinner at sapporo.
last sister shot of the trip:

trade lots of music. pack. it’s not pretty. there’s a lot of stuff for me to take home.
battling the urge to cry at every moment.
at every memento from the trip that i start to pack away.

sleep. wake up so, so early. head to the airport.
the lines are long. making our goodbye all the more longer.

cry through a quick goodbye before heading through security.

as i tweeted when i got home:
in comparison, the return journey really sucked.

but i’m home.
and i had a good welcome.

i’ll be writing about my feelings from this journey. but i won’t be too specific.
this was a time full of moments.
a time i actually wouldn’t want to do over because it was perfect the first time around.
it was a time of learning more about my sister than i ever dreamed i would.
probably the same for her.
but maybe not.

it was a journey made up of moments. and i’ll keep those moments close.
because this meant more to me than i can ever put into words.
and those are the best kinds of journeys.
