Where I stayed
On the plane for 15 hours!

Thursday, March 31, 2011

It's 6 AM and we are getting ready to depart on our grand adventure! Backpacks are packed and the plane lifts off in just under 5 hours. In approximately 19 hours, Dad and I will have landed in Moscow, and 13 weeks/5 travel companions/25 countries later, I will be flying home from London.

This is my first blogging/journaling experience, but I am going to try really hard to update enough to keep everyone in the loop. At the very least, I'll update when we move to a new country and post a few pictures. 

If you received an email about this blog entry, I have added you to my "blog contacts" list either because you expressed an interest to be added or you are emotionally/financially/physically invested in the trip in some way. I'm not sure how often Travelpod will be emailing you notices about this blog, but please let me know if the emails become cumbersome in quantity and I will take you off the list. You will still be able to follow the blog with a link :-)

I will write again soon upon arrival in Russia. Goodbye! Or as they say in Russian, до свидания. HAHA!

I am enjoying browsing through your blog....and the wonderful pictures!

I am wondering where you get the time to travel, sight-see, take pictures and eat and sleep. Your commentary is extensive and lovely! Well done!

Love Chardy
