A few hours now exist between me and my vacation. Bag is packed, I'm sure to be getting an upper workout over the next couple of weeks, tried my best to "pack light," I thought I was pretty successful my bag's heavy feeling otherwise disagrees. If need be I've packed clothes without any emotional attachment so if I need to dump them along the way I'll be fine.
Me and Mr. Shah both agree we're going to pass out once on the plane, we have to strategically plan our sleep points along the long 24 hour journey to coincide with the 11 hour time difference. This will also be the first time I am going to be so far from my laptop. Slightly scared, we haven't had much time apart, my laptop and I, but I think it will be good for both of us. Okay enough with the personification of technology's importance, but I'm looking forward to the limited capacity of my Iphone with the voice and data disabled.
We've checked in online, Air France, hopefully the flight isn't too bad, went with www.seatguru.com flight suggestions of where not to sit so hopefully there are no surprises.
Final steps before departure:
-Quadruple check everything
-Theif proof the backpack with zip ties
-Hit up the temple to make sure we have a safe journey
-Bid farewell to the comforts of home for an entire month
-Prepare for the most spontaneous and adventurous thing I've done in my life so far!
I've gotta learn how to add pictures to this blog, I'm a fan of visuals so right now this is clearly lacking. Once I figure it out I ensure you tons of picturesque, downright silly and some inspirational pics.
