My infected foot was not getting any better which seemed almost impossible to do in the dirty and humid air of Indonesia.Like a purple puff adder, it had swollen to double its size.
I decided it was time for me to leave the girls, skip out on Thailand and head to England a month earlier to get my foot seen to, allowing it time to heal away from the humidity of Indonesia.
My friends had left me to continue their journey the night before I was due to fly to London on my own.
This was the first time I would ever be doing something so life-defining on my own. The first time living out of home, the first full time job that I had yet to find, the first time without any friends or family for support.
I went straight to the exchange counter and handed over my cash. I sucked in my breath sharply when she handed me, not the thick wad of notes I had envisaged, but only two bills and a couple of coins.
