Today was the start of our month long journey around the world!! I can't believe the day has finally arrived. 

Dad woke me up at 6 a.m. to go to the airport. Of course we were there 3 hours before our flight took off. I decided to go shopping at the airport ( one of my favorite things to do ) while Dad paced back and forth worrying I would miss our flight as a result.  But before you knew it we were on our plane headed to Orlando. 

There were so many kids on the plane headed to Disney World, it was definitely good birth control. I sat next to a woman from Wisconsin who was taking four of her eight grandchildren to Disney. She lives on 40 acres with her husband and they grow and kill all their own food. So they have cows and chickens and all sorts of animals running around... it was interesting to talk to her about how she grows or makes almost everything her family uses - she even makes her own laundry detergent! I'm not about to buy a cow or anything, but it was definitely inspiring. 

The plane ride went very quickly. When we got to the airport our bags were the first off the plane and we were swooped up by a driver to take us to the hotel. So far, its been pretty easy traveling. We are staying at the Ritz Carlton in Orlando. Its very pretty. In just a little bit Im going to head to the gym to work out with Dad and then we are going to go to a sports bar and watch a game, have a cold beer and play scrabble. 

Tomorrow we meet our group of co-travellers during a dinner. We stay one more night here before we depart on our journey!
