Saying that packing was a “bit of struggle” is an understatement….I had to re-pack about 15 times….no joke. How is one supposed to know what they will need everyday for the next year! I have asked anyone and everyone (multiple times) for advice on what they have done when going abroad for an extended period of time….
This is what I started with…..
This is what I ended with…
3 bags: 2 “50” lb bags and 1 carry-on… Now the question is what am I forgetting?
Within the last few weeks I have been saying my short-term “goodbyes” trying to fit in every possible thing I can think I may miss. I even bowled if that tells you much. I celebrated my birthday under a month away successful if I do say so myself… I even get my last round of golf in with my dad before I depart in 3 days!
I’m not going to say that this will be the most interesting “blog” you will ever read because I can assure you it’s not, I hate writing and reading so I will attempt to make it a heavy picture and video filled blog.
If you have any questions that may arise while reading my blog or that you just want to know such as; I was asked to immediately figure out Chinese cuss words and send them onward lol. I will try fulfill majority of your requests whether its something you would like me to see or just something you would like me to write about.
Talk to ya next time,
