though it seems it should be the opposite this entry will be one of the most negative ones i have written.
so saturday rolled around and the anticipation was unreal!!! towards the evening around the time the folks should have already been there the anticipation was to much so i went for a surf and still couldnt stop thinking about seeing them for the first time in 7.5 months. would they look different? did they miss me as much as i missed them? would me and kate get along seeing that she has had my parents all to her self for all that time? well jsut as the sun was going down and i was in the water i see the silouete of pops carrying his board on his head down to the water something that i would always remember. i was so excited just staring at him paddle out and made my way over to where he was to give him one of the most emotional hard hugs of my life under water and we were screaming and hooting. we both caught a wave together and went in to where my mom was waiting with tears in her eyes and a big hug. it was so amazing to finally see my family and esepcially my sister who has grown up so much. we sat on the beach to watch the sunrise and i introduced them to my friends i have been hanign out with lately. we had dinner and drinks at blew dogs a place we know so well. with about 15 people and my dad at the head of my table we sat till the place closed exchanging stories and the smile on my face never receded. after the bar closed my folks went to bed and i headed to town with a few of my friends to the discoteque along wiht ktes friend brittany whom she had brought along. we had a great night dancing a i was still going on the high that i was getting from knowing that my best friends whom i havent seen for so long were so close.
we woke up`the morning to low and behold have one of the worst discoveries you can have while travelling. someone while we were sleeping had come into our house and stolen jsut about everything we need for this trip. all of our passports, credit cards and cash. the worst part for me is that they got my camera, back pack, and a stack of about 15 cds with ALL the pictures from my ENTIRE trip. it makes me sick to think that i wont be able to show my kids in 20 years the fun i had through pictures. all my memories from my trip such as letters and books, and pictures are things that i wil never be able to replace. imagine how we all felt to know that after all the time i had on the road i never had one negative thing happen to me and the first night i see the folks which should have been one of the best times of my trip was cut to crap by these theifs. the one thing that this trip has taught me and what i am passing to my parents is to jsut go wiht it, there is nothing we can do. we still have had a great time and the smiles havent been missing. we of course had to cancel all of our credit cards and on wed. we need to travel 5 hours to the u.s. embassy to get reissued passports. the scary thing is that i never had a plane ticket home so it might be hard for me to get one now wiht no access to money or without a passport. our friends here in town are helping out alot and we have still had some great ngihts together.
today we had an amzing surf an hour away at a place called marbella with heaving barrels and a good road trip. tongiht is a few of my mates last night so it should be a good one. stay tuned for more to come from the worst part of my trip!!!
