embarking on a journey of a lifetime.

It's crazy to think that I am only 12 days away from leaving the US and 15 from embarking on a journey of a lifetime.  Not only will it be a journey of a lifetime, but the fact that the day I board the MV explorer will be the day of my 21st birthday.  What a great to spend that special day -- I would say so.  I am so excited that if I were to leave tomorrow I could.. I am all packed and ready to go.  Now I sit here an patiently wait until the day arrives!  Just to think that about a month ago I was stressing about getting all of my visas done, vaccines necessary, bags that are boat appropriate, and god knows everything else I was going to need.  On top of all the school that was being piled up -- not so much anymore.

So after a little researching, I have concluded that indeed I will not completely be disconnected from the outside world.  Although SAS only provides us with just about 200 free internet mins, I still can email unlimitedly with an email they provide us ( so many of my friends and family will be hearing from me and my whereabouts !! GET EXCITED.

...well that is all for now, until further notice world :)

its just about that time.... !

tomorrow marks a month before I embark the journey of a lifetime!  In the past few weeks I have been getting my things together and getting super excited as I back them all!  I have 2 of my required visas and still need 2 which I should have shortly. :) Last thing I need to get down before I am completely read to go .. yellow fever shot (ouch).  Once that is done -- I want the days to fly by.  See you all soo sooooon
