Well, I’m almost finished packing and then it’s off to the airport in Philly!

I really hope that this snow doesn’t mess up the flight schedules.  I kind of need to be on time.

I’m leaving tomorrow and I haven’t even finished packing yet.

Okay… so maybe I haven’t packed at all. ????


Winter, Be Gone

Thursday, January 27th, 2011

Driving last night in the thundersnow was AWFUL.  I drive a ’94 Camry and she is not well equipped for winter weather, to say the least.

According to the news channel, we got 9 inches; my mother and I disagree and say that we definitely got a foot.

It’s strange to think that after tomorrow I will be thrown into humid summer weather.  To be honest, I cannot wait to get away from this dreadful snow.  I hate driving in it, it ruins plans, and it’s just COLD.

I’m sure in a few days I will be missing it. ????

The Beginning.

So… on Friday afternoon at 4:00pm I will be leaving the airport in Philly and starting my journey abroad.  I’ll be flying to LAX, then to Auckland.

And to think I haven’t even packed yet.   Oops.

Because this is a travel blog, I’m going to be completely honest at all times.  For starters, not only am I excited beyond words about this trip, I am also terrified beyond belief.  I know that I can handle myself; I came to school at UMW completely alone and without friends.  I am mostly worried that if something happens at home I won’t be able to do anything about it.  I don’t want to lose touch with the people I love, even if I am gone for just 5 months.

I love my family and friends so much, and I hope this blog entertains you all. ????
