The next month is going to be the craziest, most intense, and possibly the happiest of my life.
I'm starting a new job in ADDITION to going to Africa.
I've been told to bring a lot of reading material, as we do have a lot of downtime. I expect I will do a lot of writing, too, but not able to post until I'm back in town.
I cannot wait. I am finally getting really, really excited.
That said, I have to be completely packed by January 6th. Anyone want to come compress things so that they will magically fit in my bag? I'm concerned about getting my trekking poles there intact - how do I pack those in a checked bag that has to be small? I doubt the airline will let me attach them to the outside of my carry-on.
