Hi mom,

 

First of all, just know that I’m really grateful for you to give me this opportunity of a lifetime. I can’t express how lucky I am to experience a whole new country with Brian. I’ve never been in love with traveling like he is, but being here really opened my eyes on how fun and exciting it all is. Before leaving I had absolutely no idea what to expect from a city like Tokyo. I’ve never been outside of Europe before so you can imagine it was all a shock to me. It came as a surprise how friendly people are towards strangers. Can you imagine that back home? 

I’m sorry it took so long for me to write to you, it’s been our sixth day here so far and it took a while before we both were adjusted to the rhythm here. I just wanted to let you know we arrived safely and I’m doing the best I can to give Brian the time of his life.

 

Even though I hate to admit it, but I’m not even close to being a functional adult yet. I’m even having trouble keeping my shit together back home, let alone in another country. But I love Brian, so I’m doing my very best for him. Being in a different environment is definitely doing wonders for him. He’s significantly improving day by day. It was hard to keep an eye on him every moment of the day, but the moment he opened up to me about his problems, I though it would be best to give him some space from time to time, to gather his thoughts together. So far he’s doing great with that. He know’s I’ll always be here when he needs me. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not leaving him in Tokyo all by himself all the time. We’ve already visited Mt. Fuji and a lot of the important temples, and that’s just the beginning. Our vacation is just about to start! 

 

I know I haven’t made parenting easy for you guys the past twenty years or so and even though not everything was my fault, I still want to say sorry for how I behaved. I really hope we can reconnect when we get back home. I’ll do my best to keep in touch while we’re here to keep you updated about our trip and about Brian’s progress. This journey is just the beginning of a new life for both of us and I’m excited to see where this road will take us.

 

Thank you for everything!

P.S.: I’m sure Brian misses you already.

 

See ya soon,

 

Marissa
