Something life-changing happened
The world is a dark, dark place
The only thing that brings you solace is food
To snap out of this depression, you decide to do something life-changing, like taking one of those uber-cool solo trips
Maybe a beach trip to work on your tan and your surf
Visit an exotic Oriental city
Or a tranquil temple to find your zen
Then the night before you travel you realise you've never been out of even the state on your own
On the plane out you try so very hard to seem worldly and sophisticated
But you get sick of small talk about 5 minutes later
Argh, your seat mate can't seem to shut up
Sometimes you get lucky and there's a cute guy next to you
But most times it's just a quiet, geeky guy and when he tries to chat you up, you're like
When you finally meet someone you click with, you spill EVERYTHING
Even all those deep, dark, and very embarrassing dirty lil secrets you have
The next thing you realise, the entire plane/bus/tour group is laughing at you because you new pal is a blabbermouth.
Don't forget the time you got robbed
But by now you're so used to sh*t on the road, you're simply unfazed.
Yes, there will be times you find yourself justifying that travel-fling
And other times you just want to act coy and not give everything away
But when you hear people bragging about their "crazy holiday adventures", you can't help feeling like it's a competition
You won't trade your experiences on the road for anything
You saw the world, and you're a new gal now
What are you waiting for?
