After packing and re-packing about thirteen different times throughout the past three days I think I am finally set for Cambodia! I can’t believe the day is almost here. I have about ten outfits, two pairs of shoes and basic necessities packed because it is a goal of mine to bring back souvenirs and trickets- especially earrings! I even packed a few granola bars and a value-sized box of fruit snacks for emergency American cravings. The rest of my night will consist of more packing and organizing and hopefully I will determine what will be in my carry-on bag. I don’t know how the 21 hours of flying will go tomorrow, hopefully I sleep through at least half of it but if not I have more than enough books, magazines, and music to keep me occupied. The lingering anticipation keeps getting stronger and stronger! I’ll be up at 6:00 AM tomorrow for a last minute round up of all my belongings and then my mom and I are off to Chicago for my flight at 12:35 PM. I also got a window seat on the plane, so I’m pretty psyched about that. Hopefully all goes well. Next blog post will be from Cambodia!

 

Best, Becca
