As I sit here at my computer, 4 hours until I leave for the airport to fly to Indonesia, whatever feeling I am supposed to be feeling has not hit me yet. There is some slight nervousness but honestly, right now, I am just looking forward to the pizza and TV that will be my last moments in the States for three weeks. I suspect that once I am in the airport the excitement will hit and I won’t be able to control myself, but up until this point, preparing for this trip has been quite intensive and has left me little time to dream about all of the amazing memories, friends, and experiences that are about to be made. Preparing for this trip took weeks of planning, purchasing and collecting gear, and coordinating doctor’s visits for all the vaccinations and emergency medicines, but it is going to be all worth it and I can’t wait to share with everyone the craziest three weeks of my life!
