Next week in Africa

One week from today I will actually be in Africa.  The time has gone so quickly since I applied in December.  I feel prepared and somewhat organized but it has tested all of my multitasking expertise to get here.  Now to pack– where do you start to choose a wardrobe for 6 months in a country you have never visited and with the opposite seasons??  Let the fun begin!


  1. Love it! Experience the same thing this time last year. You will do great and be for ever changed. Look forward to following your blog…

  2. Wow – it certainly seems like the time has flown by! My suggestion: plan to dress in layers. Just to have a few comforts from home, I brought my own pillow case and some of my favorite tea. Wishing you all the best on your adventure (tainted a little green with envy.) Can’t wait to hear about your experience!

  3. How cold does it get in Africa in winter?!? In my mind it is always hot and summer-like in Africa though I am sure that is not the case. I probably need to get out and explore the world a little more!! Very exciting for you to be one week away from leaving. Take it all in and have a great time.

  4. I can’t believe you’re about to depart ~ where has the last 6 months gone? We’ll be missing you here and thinking about you!
