Today’s the day! I haven’t been able to get super excited about this trip until almost 11p last night because…school. But then I couldn’t sleep.
It all seems surreal. I’ve never travelled outside the US and in a few short hours I’ll be on a plane halfway across the world. I’m nervous and excited and approaching this trip with a sense of wonderment rather than with any expectations.
I don’t know what else to say except that I’m not sure how I managed to pack 18 days worth of stuff into one suitcase and a backpack, but I did. Here goes nothing!
Along the way I’ll be blogging and Facebooking and tweeting and emailing (firstname.lastname@example.org). I also have Viber installed on my phone, so if you do that you can add me as a contact and we can chat there.
Assuming all goes well, I’ll be landing tomorrow at 10:30a (5:30a here) at London’s Heathrow airport. Then off to find our hostel and explore the city!!
