Jess and I packed our last boxes, moved one full Zipcar pickup truck of boxes to Caleb and Sarah´s basement, and proceeded to pack, throw away and give away until we were left with pretty much just the stuff for our next 5 months of traveling. We then swept and cleaned the apartment, left our keys on the kitchen counter, and walked out for the last time. It felt strange but liberating. That´s the end of our time in Boston.
We spent our last night on the air mattress at Jon and Karen´s. I stayed up late trying to take care of last-minute things like doing my taxes and figuring out exactly how to get from the Taipei airport to my first hostel. I had to be up for a 6am cab to the airport.
