Well, I don't actually leave for Africa until July 10th, but for me, the journey has already begun. Let me explain.
I am in the throws of preparation for my trip. From London to Uganda, Africa and back is taken care of through Compassion International. It is my responsibility to get myself to London to meet up with the team going on to Africa. In the past few weeks, I have been making flight arrangements, hotel reservations, and researching the most desired attractions I want to see during the brief layover times before and after my Uganda experience.
Every time I make another arrangement, my heart literally starts beating faster as if this click of my mouse somehow brings me that much closer to leaving. My excitement is building daily now. How can I maintain the daily mundane commitments with this massive, life-changing trip in my not too distant future?
I can barely contain my myself at times and I do not leave until July 10th. I gues sometimes waiting is the hardest thing about taking a trip! It sure is for me right now.
