A mix of excitement and nervousness is the only way to describe how I feel at the moment. On the way to the airport I try to imagine exactly what lies ahead, but realize besides the course schedule I have absolutely no idea. This will be my first trip outside the states (well I have been to Niagara Falls, but does that even count?) Here there will be not only new scenery, but a completely new culture and language to be submerged in. I have tried to calm some of my nerves by reviewing my flight information far too many times to know exactly where to be and when to be there. My worst fear is being lost somewhere in between locations. Thankfully I have received contact information of those willing to help. However, I have an overall feeling that everything will be just fine so just praying for a safe flight.

Check back soon to stay updated on our arrival and the adventures ahead. But for now…
