Leaving Tomorrow!

After months of planning, applying for scholarships, and getting parental approval, my South Africa trip is finally here! It just turned 11:15pm and I can honestly say I'm ready to go!

I needed to practice uploading pictures using this whole blog thing, so I thought showing you what I'm bringing would be a good start.

I tried packing "light" since it's about a 26-hour trip to Port Elizabeth. My carry on is the brown bag and the other two are my check-ins. Doesn't look too bad for a 7-week trip right?

For those of you interested, my flight itinerary is as follows:

Tuesday 5.26-- 4:30 Los Angeles to New York (5h 23m)
Wednesday 5.27-- 11:35: New York to Johannesburg (14h 10m)
Thursday 5.28-- 13:10: Johannesburg to Port Elizabeth (1hr 30m)

There's really no way to describe how excited I am! Woo hoo!

Until next time, Adios!
