    Today is my last full day in Idaho Falls before I
take off tomorrow for my 11 month adventure. It's still pretty wild for
me to grasp the concept that I will be going, and so soon at that!
People have been asking me whether or not I am nervous or excited to be
leaving, but to be honest, I have no idea! I haven't ever taken a trip
like this, so I really don't know what to expect or how to react before
    Currently, I'm taking a break from
all of the last minute packing I should be doing and trying to talk to
friends and family on the phone one last time before I go. Also, I
thought it would be a good idea to try out this whole TravelPod thing
before I was frustrated and in another country! Other than that, this
week has been good and I have been able to squeeze in some final
American things!

    Hopefully I can get some sleep tonight (which hasn't
been happening lately) because I have many long days of travel ahead.
Tomorrow afternoon we will drive down to the Salt Lake City airport
where I will be flying out at 11:35pm on Jet Blue. From there I have a
12 hour layover in the New York JFK airport before I fly via South
African Airlines to Dakar, Senegal, then Johannesburg, South Africa and
finally into Cape Town by 8:40pm on Monday the 16th!
Anyway, I just wanted to let you all know what was going on before my
trip. Hopefully I can keep everyone up to date on my life through these

Hope you all are doing well!

Bon voyage, dear Katie!!
Hello my beautiful friend!

I was so excited to see your email in my inbox that I felt the need to be the first to comment on your blog. :o) I only wish that I was there in IF to give you a great big hug right now, but I suppose that a virtual one over the internet will have to do for now. I hope that your travels go smoothly and that you make all your connections and that you arrive safely in one piece in Johannesburg. Can't wait for your next post.

Lots of love to my favorite Idaho girl!
