Two Days Out

Happy New Year!

Well, here it is-

My first blog post. I was not planning on it coming out this late but I have been busy preparing for the trip. Busy preparing, but somehow still not packed or fully prepared. Leaving for South Africa on January 3 seemed like such as distant thing a couple of months ago. I can’t believe I am finally two days away. I am actually really freaking out but once I set foot on the plane I think I will finally be comprehending that I am traveling halfway across the world, having never set foot outside of the US! I am pretty sad to be leaving my family and I wish that they could experience this with me. However, I am pretty proud of myself to be doing something out of my comfort zone. I am hoping that my family gets to read this blog. Hopefully I will be able to blog while I am traveling, but even if I don’t get a chance I will still continue to write about my trip even after I am back.

I have never been a fan of packing so I am struggling pretty hard to pack for a trip that lasts almost two weeks and takes me across the US border. I will definitely be forgetting something and knowing me, something important. Hopefully it won’t be too important that I could pick it up at an airport or gas station (petrol station as it is called in South Africa).

Looking forward I think I am most excited to just take everything in. This being my first international trip it is a little scary and daunting, but I want to show myself that I set my mind to it and I can do it- culture shock, heat, and all! I am really excited to try the foods there- it is a very meat heavy diet. I am particularly looking forward to trying some different kinds of jerky- possible ostrich? I am also looking forward to all the interactions with the animals. If you know me, you know that I love animals and any chance I get to interact with them has me freaking (in a good way)! I know for sure I’ll get a chance to hug and bathe an elephant as well as feed and kiss a hippo. For those who want to check it out, we are going to see Jessica the hippo. Google her. She has her own website. I can’t wait. I already feel my cheeks hurting from how huge my smile will be. On the top of my blog page you can see Blyde River Canyon (it’s the Grand Canyon of South Africa) and I will be traveling and hiking there as well. Cannot wait for the pictures and the views.

As for now, I have a lot of packing and preparing to still do. Can’t wait for you all to follow along the journey!
