Confessions of a Brunette on the Internet 236

The days leading up to a big trip... like being gone for two weeks, is exciting and a little stressful. Trying to get everything done that you need to before you leave. Just the little things... getting rid of all your food, doing laundry, watering your plants real good so they don't die while you are gone, taking care of the fish.... trying to figure out what to pack.... oh what to pack. Of course I leave that until the night before, but I always struggle with what you pack for two weeks in a backpack. Do I need to pick up anything at the store before I leave? I have done enough big trips lately that I pretty much have all of my travel needs taken care of. I always do fine.... usually room to spare, but then I worry that I didn't pack enough.

However, when all that is done and you actually go, then it is all just enjoying the journey. The ups and downs of it. Traveling is fun and exciting, but not every part of it is glamorous... like the travel days, not being able to shower for days or sleep in a bed (sometimes having to sleep on a bus or at the airport) being lost all of the time.

But it's all worth it. I can't believe this is my 3rd big 2 week trip in a little less than a year.

Let the journey begin.
