Weekly photo challenge: reflections, a self portrait

I was at the airport in Sandakan. I’d come to Sandakan full of hope and with a sense of adventure. When I arrived I heard about the uproar that had been going on in the areas of the province Sabah that I wanted to travel to. Instead of preparing for the adventure, I spent my first day considering my options. The trip I had planned involved activities in dangerous areas. There was a negative travel advice from my government and my insurance wouldn’t cover me there. After a lot of thinking and some freaking out I decided to cancel my plans. This photo is taken the next day at the airport. I was about to fly back to Kota Kinabalu, the safe zone. I saw other travellers that had done the trip I wanted to do and had arrived in Sandakan safely. I couldn’t help but think I’d made the wrong decision. To me this photo still shows anger, fear and sadness, mixed with trying to be optimistic.

The weekly photo challenge of this week is reflection. For other entries check out this page.
