If anyone is wondering why someone would leave their home, family, friends and all of life's luxuries for months on end to sleep in small huts, eat strange food, take cold saltwater showers, and to not know what you're going to do the next day then let me explain. Six months ago traveling around the world was the last thing that I thought I would be doing this year. Four months ago life took an unexpected turn and presented me with an eight month window of opportunity to "get out of Dodge"(Eight months because I'm waiting to get into next years nursing school)
Enough of all that mumbo jumbo, lets get on to the next subject at hand...time, and as usual, it is flying by! Only one month left! I think I have most of the stuff I need...hmmm, I wonder what I'll forget. In a few weeks I'll be thousands of miles away. Wow! How do I feel? Well, take a lot of excitement mixed with a tablespoon of anxiety, a hint of nervousness, and a touch of "I must be crazy" and you got it! It is really just starting to hit me that I'm actually leaving. Less than one month! I can't wait!
I'll post again before I leave. Still have to finish that never ending checklist of things to do!
