I'm leaving in about twenty minutes for the airport. With my jumbo suitcase and carry-on packed, I think that I have enough stuff. Let's just hope I don't have to carry it far! Now that the stress of packing has passed, I'm getting really excited. It's crazy to me that tomorrow I will be in a completely different country, for 4 months!
To all of my worried relatives: Yes, I will travel in a group. No, I won't flash large amounts of money in public places. Yes, I will be careful with my knee. No, I won't wear fancy jewelry. Yes, I have copies of my passport. Yes, Ms. Chris, I realize that I will be gone for "a long ass time." And No, Zac, I won't pull out huge maps on the streets, nor will I wear my backpack in front, Mikaelyn. :)
